    United Facilities

    WIELAND’s Florida team is underway on a 66,000 SF expansion to a United Facilities (UF) warehouse in Orlando, Florida. WIELAND was there throughout the night to ensure the concrete mix design, placement technique, and floor finish were above industry standards and exceeded the client’s overall flatness/levelness requirements. UF is a national third-party logistics provider, and a repeat client for WIELAND, putting WIELAND’s mission of “finding and serving lifelong clients” into action. This is the first of two expansion projects underway for UF in Orlando, with another 80,000 SF tilt wall warehouse expansion in design.

    Volunteering at Renzi Education and Art Center

    WIELAND is dedicated to being a part of its local communities. The WIELAND Shreveport office volunteered to put together a greenhouse for the Renzi Education and Art Center (REAC) in Shreveport, LA. The REAC’s mission is to provide free, high-quality after-school academic and art classes and summer camp to K-12 youth in the Shreveport-Bossier area, so that all children have the opportunity to explore, learn, and create, under the guidance of professional teachers and artists. The greenhouse will be used as part of the programs offered to kids from low-income families to teach gardening skills and used to grow herbs and vegetables for the cooking classes.

    Allen Neighborhood Center

    Construction continues at the Allen Neighborhood Center in Lansing, Michigan where WIELAND is providing construction services for demolition, renovation and new construction. WIELAND recently received certificate of occupancy for the buildout of the Center’s new 1,600 square foot Accelerator Kitchen. The Accelerator Kitchen is a complimenting space and “next stage” for culinary graduates and entrepreneurs from the Center’s Incubator Kitchen. This space was a former barbershop that required asbestos abatement, wall and mezzanine demolition along with saw cutting the floor for new underground utilities before the buildout and equipment installation could occur.
