Demolition Makes Way for Florida Dermatology’s New Lakeland Location

At A.O. Construction, some of our favorite projects are the ones where we can be a part of keeping our community healthy and happy. This week’s blog focuses on just such a project, where we’re building a new location for Florida Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers in Lakeland. They provide a full spectrum of dermatology and skin scare services, and with this new location, they’ll be even better able to serve the people of Lakeland.

The project began with demolition on October 30. Let’s take a look at some of our progress so far. 

In these pictures, you can see where we’ve demolished existing partition walls. This space will be dedicated to the future reception area. 

Here, you can see the demolition we’ve done on the front waiting area. This will be converted into future exam rooms. 

These pictures show the existing walls and flooring we’ve demolished in order to create new exam rooms. 

This is another picture of the future exam rooms. We’ve had to cut the concrete to relocate plumbing for the new layouts. Electricians will start removing and relocating the electrical conduits this week. The next step will be to frame the new partition walls. 

This photo shows the demolition of the existing bathroom. So far, we’ve removed the wainscot from the existing walls, as well as removed the fixtures and flooring. The next step will be to skim coat the drywall in order to spray it with new texture. We’ll also be installing new luxury vinyl flooring and installing new fixtures. 

The photos above show the trench for the plumbing that will go from the new ADA bathroom to outside the building, where it will be connected to the existing sewer system. 

The project continues to go well, and we expect to finish the project by the end of the year so Florida Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers can start serving customers early next year.
