Early involvement by Southern Prestress Inc. in Ft. Myers, FL, made building the Minnesota Twins spring training facility a little easier. Lee County, FL, chose a design/build approach for the facility, giving Southern a chance to come on board early to assist the design team in making decisions.
Design/build projects have a single point of responsibility and only one contract with the owner. The winner of the contract in this case was Case Construction of Plant City, FL. Other team members included architects Lescher and Mahoney, Tampa, and Bliss Nyitray Consulting Engineers, Miami.
