Providing Homes to Cape Coral Community

The Cape at Savona Point is still under construction, however some residents are getting settled in to the buildings that are completed. So how did this project come about? We wanted to share how Roers is helping provide new homes to the community of Cape Coral some and interesting insights the team worked through as the project was in the initial stages.

The development team became aware of the lack of multi-family housing options in the Cape Coral area in Florida. Many housing developments focused on patio homes and single family residential.  The multi-family residential that was available was not meeting the demand for the fast growing city of Cape Coral.  Larry Nygard, Roers Development President, and team located a perfect site within a few blocks of an elementary school, a middle school and a high school that is also centrally located to everything else.  The main vision is to provide a housing option to people in the service industry, nurses, teachers and more. This was an opportunity to provide housing for those that want a unique, affordable housing option without owning their own home.

Jeremy Easum, Civil Engineer with Roers, provided some insights on the initial project planning stages and how it was different from others.  Jeremy commented, “A couple of differences that stand out to me are the regulations are so much more intense on development.  This project has 25 building permits.   The other main difference that engineers and surveyors can appreciate is the elevation.  I’m used to creating plans in North Dakota with design elevations of 2500 feet above sea level and where I came from in Wyoming elevations of 4800’ above sea level.  Our base flood design elevation on Savona was 7’ above sea level.”

 Partnerships in this project were more important than ever. “We knew early on this project would be different.  We wanted to be heavily involved in the design and construction and use the knowledge base we have built over the years constructing multi-family developments,” stated Jeremy.  Local partnerships with multiple firms including our general contractor, Brooks and Freund were developed.  Other firms including architect, civil consultant, environmental consultant, landscape architect, geotechnical consultant, marketing consultant, leasing & property management consultant and lending partners have proven to be great partnerships.  Through this process Roers has also developed a relationship with the City of Cape Coral.   All of these partnerships and relationships hopefully will yield other opportunities in Florida.

Making History with Delta Beams at Missouri Slope Project

The Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center project is one that is making history for Roers and North Dakota. The structure of this project will be unique due to the beam system being installed. This is the first project in North Dakota to use Delta beams as they are not very common in the United States yet. The Delta Beam system enables the construction crew to provide a larger space between the ceiling and structure which gives the trades more room for their equipment. The system will actually shrink the height of the building as well.

In the early phases of the Missouri Slope project, those that pass by the project in northern Bismarck can see the building is starting to take shape vertically. The foundations are 90% complete, with 50% of those complete with steel and concrete. The building consists of four wings and a core which ties it all together. Two of the four wings are erected. One wing is ready for windows to be installed; the roof is going being installed and interior framing is near complete. The other wing is erected with floors poured and, framing on the exterior beginning soon.

Our Project Superintendent, Phil Keller, has worked with Roers for over 20 years. When asked what is most exciting for him on this project, he commented “To see a foundation be poured and move on to setting steel, then see precast set. You know in a month sheathing will be hung on the exterior of the building and everything fits as it should! Watching the project progress is very exciting. Going from one phase to the next and seeing all of our planning flow is very gratifying.” Phil is pictured below at the project groundbreaking.

Phil is the first point of contact for anyone that comes onto the job site. “I take the responsibility of the safety for the entire crew, including Roers team members and subcontractors, very seriously. We start our day talking about safety to ensure it’s a safe environment for everyone. Besides talking about safety, we do safety checks on the perimeter railings on all floors, making sure all stairs are clear and signage is still in place.” Covid-19 has brought about extra check ins, temperature readings and other safety precautions on the job site.

Besides being the main contact and face of Roers on-site, Phil also manages many other behind the scenes parts of the project. He coordinates the subcontractors and deliveries, ensuring all trades are following through with project specifications and required inspections, manages the daily activities and quality control. He is in charge of keeping up with the storm water pollution prevention plans (SWPPP) and maintaining a clean organized site.

Partnership has been a key player in this project. Roers has designated a strong management team to plan and execute the activities of this large scale project. The working relationship with the Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center project team has been very successful as well. Every participant in the project can find the needed information or support on the project.

Crossroads Dental Under Construction in West Fargo

A new dental office with state-of-the-art technology will soon open in West Fargo located conveniently on Veterans Blvd near Interstate 94. Nate Nygard, DDS, currently operates the practice as Callender Nygard Family Dental. When the new office opens in July 2019, the practice will be called Crossroads Dental.

Roers is constructing the new practice and is working closely with Patterson Dental on the dental equipment. The new office will have a state-of-the-art sterilization center with a treatment conference room to discuss cases in a relaxed and private environment. The dental lab will feature an in-house crown milling unit and 3-D printer. The office will eventually be completely digital which means dental impressions will not be needed. The technology allows them to make crowns in one appointment and scan teeth with our camera and have the models printed digitally with the 3-D printer. The office will also have a full basement with a large training room. This will allow us to have staff training events and continuing education events/meetings in house.

Nygard will open the office as the sole dentist however, with the anticipated growth in clients the office is being built to add an additional two to three dentists and more hygienists in the future.

Despite a harsh winter and marginal spring for weather, the timeline has been kept fairly close. The Roers crew has been able to keep up with the anticipated open date set in October at groundbreaking. The anticipated open date is July 8, 2019 for Crossroads Dental.

Jeremiah Program

Fargo, ND — Jeremiah Program broke ground on its new Fargo-Moorhead campus in early June. The new campus, located at 3104 Fiechtner Drive South in Fargo, will provide safe and affordable housing for 20 determined, low-income families, as well as an on-site early childhood education center, classrooms where the mothers can build confidence and life skills, and spaces where they can meet with coaches to support them in achieving a career-track, college education.

“We have worked hard together to get to this day,” said Diane Solinger, Jeremiah Program Fargo-Moorhead Executive Director. “Many of our community board of trustees and supporters have been with us since the very beginning, even through the peaks and valleys. They have given us unwavering commitment, and together we are building a campus to bring this excitement to life.”

Why is this campus and Jeremiah important to Fargo-Moorhead? Currently, more than 2,300 single mothers are living in poverty in the Fargo-Moorhead area, a number that has increased 16 percent over the last six years. The majority of these mothers have children under the age of four with fewer than half of them enrolled in pre-school…
