Building Renovations

In 1980, the Florida Forestry Association purchased an old apartment building just blocks from the State Capitol. Through financial contributions and donated materials, the building was renovated, transforming it into the Association’s official headquarters and a showplace of our industry’s wood products.

Fast forward to 2015, and our showcase building was in need of long overdue repairs and a facelift! Thanks to generous donors once again, we got to work! Repairs and renovations included a new roof, exterior wood rot repair and painting, replacement of surface wood on the deck, new floor treatments to replace the 34-year-old carpeting and vinyl, a sleek new sign, and a beautiful landscape design.

A picture is worth 1,000 words, so let these “before and after” collages paint the best picture of all of the changes that have been made at your Association headquarters!
