Steel-Con is shipping large quantities of steel for the Omega at Bonita Bay project. This 27-floor high rise will feature 67 residences, including 63 tower residences and four penthouses.
What’s the best way to frame a flat-roofed eco-home? Why, with Steel Construction Systems studs, of course! Because it can be recycled time and time again without losing its strength, steel is increasingly heralded as a green building option. Its use in projects like this can even help buildings achieve LEED certification!

Gainesville Gains Eco-Friendly Health Center
Residents of Gainesville, Florida, will soon have access to an exciting new medical facility that’s not only efficient in its treatment of patients, but also in its use of energy. The $36 million, 72,000-square-foot University of Florida Health Springhill medical office building will bring internal medicine, family practice, child psychiatry, and several other practices together under one roof, enabling better continuity of care.
The facility is designed and will be constructed according to stringent sustainability standards. Expansive windows will enable natural light to stream into the building as automated blinds offer shade from the sun. High-efficiency lighting, heating, cooling, and insulation systems, as well as low water-use landscaping, will lessen the building’s environmental footprint and provide a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for patients.
This project is moving forward under general contractor CPPI, with subcontractor Central Florida Drywall and distributor INEX of Gainesville, and is scheduled for completion in August of 2018.
Under general contractor Royal American Construction Company, the Century Apartments, in Century, FL, are well underway. Triple J Drywall is working with SteelCon products to frame this project, with materials delivered by Rosen Materials of Pensacola. The job site involves a combination of wood and steel framing, with concrete masonry units comprising the exterior walls.
