The Weitz Company was the recipient of the 2017 Build Florida Award presented by the Associated General Contractors Florida East Coast Chapter on February 17 for its renovation of The Breakers Seafood Bar.
A fast-track off-season project, the Seafood Bar project consisted of demolishing the restaurant, including adjacent meeting rooms, and remodeling the 6,111-square-foot space with a new nautical-inspired theme. The restaurant reopened with an 18-seat framed aquarium bar top; temperature controlled wine room; floor-to-ceiling impact windows that overlook the Atlantic Ocean; main dining area to accommodate 110 patrons; exhibition kitchen facing the dining area; high-glass columns and acoustic ceilings; and new restrooms.
Weitz’s customer advocacy approach, innovation, efficiency and safety record were all key factors for winning Build Florida Award.
This competitive awards program is judged by a jury of industry peers on the variety of criteria, including meeting the challenge of a difficult job, excellence in project management, innovation in techniques or materials, excellence in client service, and the project team’s commitment to safety.
