Bowling Green, OH
- James E Brossia, President Telamon Construction
Wood Lane Industries has been a staple in the northwest Ohio community since 1955, providing support for children, youth, and adults with developmental disabilities. Programs are structured to provide students with independence by providing jobs and skills to propel individuals into the workforce. While the developmental disabilities system is ever changing, Wood Lane consistently innovates to equip individuals with vital services to enhance development and ultimately achieve independence. As Wood Lane continues to grow in an effort to provide further reaching support, so have their needs within a facility.
In August of 2017 Wood Lane Industries made the strategic decision to develop a partnership with a provider of day services for people with developmental disabilities to assume and increase the development of the current adult work center. The move will ultimately save the facility on rent costs, while enhancing services provided to individuals. By saving on overhead costs, Wood Lane Industries will also be able to expand their reach of services with additional finances available. While the community and WLI were enthused by the proposition of a new facility, the project came with an ambitious deadline in order to maintain WLI services to all students. With hopes to have the new facility completed by the end of the year, an aggressive timeline would have to be closely followed.
Due to a reputation of on-time, safely completed work, the general contractor on the project, Telamon Construction, felt that OCP was best suited to complete the work at an exceptional standard. Despite redesign changes by the architect due to unforeseen existing conditions within the building, OCP has consistently delivered superior work on an aggressive schedule. When asked about their experience in collaborating with OCP on the project, James E Brossia President of Telamon Construction stated “This project is a design build, with a very short schedule. When we were asked to bid this project and we started to put together our team I thought of OCP first. I have done many challenging projects with OCP on our team and completed them on time and in budget. The project is going great, and we will finish on time. I would like to personally thank everyone involved from OCP, for us and our customer it is your professionalism and dedication to quality workmanship that make a project great.”
The project is currently on schedule to be completed December 29, 2017, adding to OCP’s robust profile of skyline defining projects.
