Current Builders Announces New Florida West Coast Residential Project

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Current Builders (currentbuilders.com) today announced they have been selected as the general contractor for the Gallery 3100 residential project in St. Petersburg, Florida. The $20 million, 122-unit residential project is being developed by Mosaic at Grand Central and the architectural firm is Baker Barrios.

Current Builders will be utilizing a signature concrete design innovation on the project's 4-story parking garage. They have also developed a special community relationship to overcome a space-challenged construction site. This is the award-wining construction firm's first project on the west coast in many years. As part of their strategic expansion plan, they recently opened an office in Sarasota.

"We are honored that our first new project in this region is with the Mosaic Development Group," said Chip Angenendt, VP West Coast Division. "The three primary contacts for Mosaic, Roxanne Amoroso, Marc Mariano and Terry Wayland lead an outstanding, knowledgeable team with a dynamic vision for this inspired rental community."

The appropriately named development will feature an art gallery space in the amenity area showcasing the works of the Duncan McClellan Gallery; enhancing the reputation of this vibrant cultural city.

The project is expected to begin concrete foundations in June; however, launching the construction plan proved challenging due to tight site constraints, but Current Builders devised a solution that demonstrates their renowned community spirit.

"This project runs property line to property line; leaving no room on the site for a construction trailer or a place for our parking and laydown areas," explained Angenendt. "So, we reached out to the First Baptist International Church of St Petersburg, which owns an unused building in need of significant repair adjacent to the site and offered to transform it into a multipurpose center/office in exchange for using their property for our construction needs."

This win-win alliance is just the beginning according to Angenendt. "Giving back is in Current Builders' DNA, and we are looking forward to becoming an active part of the community through a variety of programs."

Innovation is also part of Current Builders' DNA. This is the third project to employ the firm's recently unveiled garage building system, which was developed by Mike Gillette, Vice President of CB Structures. This innovative shoring technique is an alternative to precast and post tension garages; reducing the build time by almost 25%.

The system consists of a 60,000-pound column mounted jack supported by wide flange W beams. This system eliminates the need for re-shoring under the beams which reduces costs and time, and additionally provides a 7-foot working table for iron workers and carpenters. Gillette's innovation has been used very successfully on several Current Builder's projects in Boca Raton.

Current Builders looks forward to announcing new projects on both coasts, and the team is thrilled to have a dedicated west coast office and project teams in place.

"Years ago, we built several projects on the west coast," said Angenendt. "But with this newly established office in Sarasota, we can truly become part of the community and realize Current Builders' mission in this region."

Attorneys David Goldman, Bernard Walsh and Stephan Fernandez Attend FJA’s Masters Of Justice Conference

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The October Florida Justice Association's Masters Of Justice conference was attended by several partners from the personal injury law firm Shapiro Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh.

Held at the Ritz Carlton in downtown Sarasota the conference featured dozens of seminars on a wide variety of civil trial law topics.

Headlining the conference were several advanced lectures including a presentation on auto accident representation entitled "Winning From The Beginning" given by attorney Keith Mitnik; a lecture on defective roadway infrastructure entitled "Defective and Improperly Installed Guardrails" given by speakers Leslie Kroeger and Poorad Razavi; and a seminar on Life Care Planning after a severe injury entitled "Truth, Lies, Myths, and Legends," given by Dr. Santo Steven BiFulco, a CLCP of BiFulco Medical Group in Tampa, Florida.

Several members of the Personal Injury Law Firm Shapiro Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh were in attendance including Attorney David Goldman, Attorney Stephan Fernandez, Attorney Bernard Walsh, and Attorney Daniel Murphy.

Attendees received presentation materials useful for a variety of case types and could potentially earn up to 17 Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Credits during the conference. In addition to the educational value, attendees also were able to network with other members of the Florida Justice Association and stay up to date in many areas of civil trial law including auto negligence, insurance bad faith and medical malpractice.

The event also featured the 5th Annual Diversity and Inclusion Reception. This year's reception honored retired Florida Supreme Court Justice James E. C. Perry. Nominated in 2009 by then Florida Governor Charlie Crist, Perry was the 85th Justice to the Florida Supreme Court.

Other notable guests of the Reception included The Honorable Charles E. Williams of the 12th Circuit Court of Florida, who serves on the Sarasota County Bar Association's Diversity Committee, and Christina Walsh, secretary of the Tampa Student Bar Association and former FJA liaison to Cooley Law School.

Attorney David L. Goldman had this to say about the FJA conference: "Events like the Masters of Justice held by the FJA are a valuable tool in the effort to keep our civil justice system strong. Over the past several years lobbyists from the insurance industry and many other special interest groups have used the present political climate to weaken consumer protections in the name of jobs. More often than not these efforts to influence our state legislature have led to higher corporate profits, reduced protections for our citizens, and little in the way of good paying jobs.

"The Florida Justice Association and other members of the legal system have stood to protect the rights of our citizens, and the 'Masters of Justice' seminars allow for experienced attorneys to share knowledge and experience to help protect our legal system, and become better prepared to defend the integrity of our society."

Mr. Goldman is a member of the American Association of Justice, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, and the Southern Trial Lawyers Association.
