J.E. Charlotte Construction Corp., a Venice-based commercial construction company, has been awarded the contract to construct a 28,000-square-foot building for PGT Innovations. The one-story building will connect two of PGT Innovations’ existing glass processing plants located on Technology Drive in North Venice, creating a large continuous space for operations. With construction scheduled to begin this month, the new building is planned to enhance safety, quality, productivity and efficiency as glass moves through the processing stations that are used to produce impact-resistant and energy-efficient glass for PGT Custom Windows + Doors brand products. Slated for completion in fall 2018, the project will add production space, as well as a 1,150-square-foot compressor room. A 3,100-square-foot exterior canopy area will also be constructed as part of the project. Designed by Hall Architects, the new space is expected to increase the capacity for housing processed gl ass units before they move to the next phase in the manufacturing process, allowing the company to maximize its production capabilities.
