Project Overview

This Construction Management project, the Next Level Church – Gateway Campus, located in Fort Myers, Florida, is a new 19,500 SF pre-engineered structure on 7.5 Acres. The project features an auditorium, foyer, classrooms for children and youth offices for their staff and full site development with parking. The project reflects the same style as the main campus of Next Level Church on Plantation Road, which was built by J.L. Wallace, Inc. in April 2011.


Renovations and additions always pose particular challenges interfacing and coordinating with the existing infrastructure. However, this project was particularly challenging as it served as the fitness and athletic center for the community with surrounding tennis courts. The goal during the construction process was to minimizedown time for the facility and minimize the disturbance to the surrounding residents and community members utilizing the facilities. J.L. Wallaceachieved this by coordinating closely with the operators of the fitness facility and diligently planning the construction process to ensure once shut downs occurredthe new work was completed quickly and efficiently allowing the facility to reopen.
