VENICE, Fla. — J.E. Charlotte Construction Corp. (www.JECharlotte.com), a commercial construction company that offers a full range of construction management services, has been awarded the contract to construct the child care center for PGT Custom Windows and Doors.
Now under construction, the over 8,000-square-foot facility will offer affordable, convenient child care services to PGT families with young children as well as parents who work in the Triple Diamond Commerce Park in North Venice. The $1.8 million project, including the land acquisition, is scheduled for completion in first quarter of 2018.
Located at 101 Triple Diamond Blvd., the PGT-owned facility will be operated by the Venice branch of the SKY Family YMCA, a licensed Voluntary Pre- Kindergarten (VPK) provider. To accommodate parents working various shifts, the new child care facility will be open six days a week from 4:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., with flexible pick-up and drop-off policies.
“We are excited to be entering the construction phase now,” said Debbie LaPinska, vice president of human resources at PGT. “We have an existing relationship with Jeff Charlotte and his team and know the project will progress efficiently. This facility is one of the first child care facilities with extended hours to meet the needs of the workforce, and we are glad to be able to offer an affordable and nearby child care option that will offer a safe, reliable and consistent environment for children.”
The child care center will be staffed by professionals trained by the YMCA and operated as a licensed and accredited facility. The center will have the capacity to accommodate just under 100 children aged six weeks to five years old and will offer curriculum-based programs, healthy meals and an outdoor playground.
Currently, PGT Custom Windows and Doors employs over 2,100.
