Firmo Construction and HOS Management Celebrate Construction Milestone With Topping Out Ceremony
Fort Myers, Fla. (February 15, 2022) – One of the newest urban hospitality projects to come to downtown Fort Myers has reached a milestone. The four-story, 118-room Hampton Inn by Hilton hotel located at the corner of Cleveland Avenue and McGregor Boulevard, celebrated its topping off last week.
Construction management firm, Firmo Construction, along with hospitality and development group, HOS Management, subcontractors, construction crew, and project contributors, participated in the tree-topping ceremony, which marks the milestone of the last beam being placed at the full height of the building. The age-old celebration hosted by Firmo allowed everyone involved in the project to congratulate each other for their work and recognize the many individuals who have contributed, while gearing up for a successful project completion ahead.
“With diligence, collaboration, and adaptation to our continuously changing industry, the Firmo team is proud to celebrate this construction milestone with all the subcontractors, partners, and stakeholders that have helped us get here,” said Eric Collin, President of Firmo Construction. “We hope to keep these same principles at the forefront as we carry out this project to its completion.”
The future Hampton Inn will feature 118 guest rooms, an outdoor pool and patio area, a flexible boardroom for use, and a fitness center. Situated on a two-acre lot, the 65,000 square foot building will be an infill lot development that will open to guests later this year.
