Cape At Savona Still on Track

The Cape at Savona Point in Florida is still moving forward with construction. We visited with Matt Nygard, Project Manager with Roers Development, to get an update on the project during this unique time.

How is leasing currently being done?

All leasing is being conducted virtually.  When we receive leads, we respond to each lead with a phone call to identify specific needs and wants. Then we email them a digital brochure and schedule a time for a virtual tour. We can provide a Facetime tour if the prospect has capability or videos delivered via email. 

What safety precautions are being done at the construction site?

CDC guidelines are being followed at the site. In addition, there are multiple hand washing stations and facilities are being thoroughly cleaned multiple times a day. All trades are required to wear masks and rubber gloves 100% of the time while on site.  Anyone working together must stay 6 feet apart at all times.   

Have the construction completion dates been adjusted?

We are still on track for our original target date for move in by May 1, 2020. The Clubhouse and Building One are the first two buildings that will be completed.

Roers and Bell Bank Partner in United Way Poverty Simulation

Roers and Bell Bank partnered to participate in kicking off their United Way Campaigns by having over 90 employees come together to participate and volunteer in the United Way Poverty Simulation. Roers Leader, Danielle Paulus, and her husband, Ken Paulus, Bell Bank team member, have the honor to be the 2019 United Way Campaign Chairs and are excited about helping raise over six million dollars that will go right back into our local community to help move the needle on big community goals.

Roers and Bell Bank both have core values focusing on community and partnership. When looking at ways to educate and engage both organizations, they wanted to find a way that would create value for our employees. “As this year’s United Way Campaign Chairs, we are excited to be able to bring Bell Bank and Roers together to educate everyone on some of the daily challenges members in our community face, the work the United Way is doing, and how we can all make a difference,” stated Danielle and Ken Paulus. Employees were invited to attend an experience which depicts real-life scenarios. This event puts into perspective what someone or a family in poverty goes through – it could be a neighbor, someone next to you in the grocery aisle or a family on your son’s soccer team. Julie Peterson Klein, EVP/Chief Culture Officer at Bell Bank shared, “What a great day!  I was honored to take part and have heard many positive comments in meetings at Bell.  This day definitely hit my heart and minds.”

Last year Roers employees invested over $15k of employee dollars into our employee campaign. Overall our company invested $60,000 dollars from our campaign and Annual Chili Feed. We are so thankful for those who believe in giving back to our community!

“Thank you to both your amazing teams for all of the effort, energy and excitement that you put in to coordinating the poverty simulation!  Our team at United Way enjoyed sharing the opportunity to learn more about individuals who face the financial challenges of living in poverty with your teammates.  We hope they found this time to be impactful and valuable,” commented Tiffany McShane, Community Engagement Director for United Way of Cass Clay.

Creating Partnerships is Key to Florida Project Staying on Task

The Roers Development team is extremely pleased with the progress of the Cape at Savona Point project. The construction crew is ahead of schedule! The goal is to have the first 40-plex completed in late Spring 2020. The construction process has been flawless.  The contractor understands the design build process and is excellent at value engineering. Developing strong partnerships has been key to this project running smoothly.

Matt Nygard, Project Manager with Roers Development, had this to say about working on a project over 1,900 miles away – “You realize how valuable “time”  and “trust” are.  There is no running down the street to verify something.  When I’m physically in Florida, the site walk through with the superintendent, architect, and project manager is the most important time of my month.   A beneficial strategy we have is a weekly conference call with the previously mentioned professionals.  These calls are important to keep the project moving forward.  If there are items that need a deep dive, we discuss those offline with the appropriate professional to keep the meeting moving forward.  We are learning things a long the way and with our integrated software program, our team of professionals is able to make quick decisions and keep track of them.”

Keep up to date on the progress of this project on roers.com.
