Stevens Construction has started an interior renovation and outdoor amenities improvement to the amenity center at Somerset at the Plantation, at 10401 Dartington Dr. in Fort Myers.
In a statement, Stevens said it is providing a 12,650-sq. ft. interior renovation of the community amenity center, which will include the fitness facility, meeting rooms, bathrooms, offices, outdoor bar and event room. Additionally, the contractor is building four new pickleball courts, two new bocce ball courts, shade canopies, and expanding the spa and renovating the sauna.
The company provided six months of preconstruction services, which included assembling and coordinating the design team, providing constructability reviews, cost savings suggestions, which saved the client hundreds of thousands of dollars while not affecting the scope of the project. Additional items were actually added to the project scope as a result of the cost savings provided in preconstruction.
The Stevens Construction team includes senior project manager, Alan Bennett; superintendent, Neal Klein; and project administrator, Gina Ferentini. The project was designed by GMA Architects & Planners.
