Health care projects are leading the way for commercial construction in Jacksonville and giving local contractors a shot in the arm.
In the first five months of this year, the city of Jacksonville issued building permits for $87.7 million of health care construction — the top category of commercial construction for permits of $50,000 and above, accounting for 27.6 percent of all permits. That figure includes assisted/senior living facilities.
"The contractors are all sanguine about prospects for health care construction in Jacksonville in the next few years. 'I think it’s going to be good.'"

July 8, 2014 - Can zoo animals find happiness in high-rise apartment living?
A number of the nation's zoos are opening the gates of traditional pens to let animals roam the grounds high above their human visitors. In Denver, elephants and rhinos take a rustic-style bridge to cross between recreation areas as people watch from below. At Florida's Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, tigers are free to roam a new trail that loops around exhibits of babirusa pigs, Asian small-clawed otters and Visayan warty pigs—many of which would be their prey in the Asian tropics.
In March of this year, Perry-McCall Construction moved into our new offices located off Philips Highway.

March 7, 2014 - Five tigers — two Sumatran, three Malayan — are the main attraction in the Land of the Tiger exhibit opening Saturday at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens.
But the $9.5 million expansion of the zoo’s Asia Precinct features other exotic animals with Asian roots as well: Visayan and babirusa pigs, small-clawed otters and wreathed and wrinkled hornbills.
Land of the Tiger is the most significant addition to the zoo since the Range of the Jaguar opened in 2004, said Tony Vecchio, the zoo’s executive director. Though the jaguar exhibit is larger and cost more, Vecchio said, he believes Land of the Tiger is even better.
“All the things that we did with the jaguar exhibit — the theming, the special views, the underwater viewing, the ‘nose-to-nose’ experience through glass — we’ve done for the tiger exhibit,” Vecchio said, “but we’ve also given the animals more freedom and choices as they roam. I think we’ve learned a lot about not just the physical needs but the psychological needs of the animals and how to keep them stimulated.”

February 4, 2014 - Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is now home to the largest research telescope in Florida.
School leaders hope the addition will help them attract students to a new bachelor's degree program in astronomy and astrophysics and expand research opportunities for faculty and students.
Crews used a crane to hoist the 2-ton telescope, still in pieces, up to the fifth floor of the new Colleges of Arts and Sciences building on Monday. It's not working yet because the school is waiting for a mirror that will be inserted into the telescope within the next month. A 15-foot-tall retractable dome covers the instrument. The meter-long telescope, and six smaller portable telescopes that will be mounted on a terrace outside the dome, are valued at about $2 million.
February 3, 2014 - Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University on Monday installed a $1 million telescope at its Daytona Beach campus, which gives the school bragging rights as home to Florida's largest university research telescope.
Officials hope the 16-foot-tall, 2-ton device will draw more students to the campus and to an astronomy major it plans to start offering later this year.
Embry-Riddle is among the colleges across the state and nation that have expanded astronomy programs as interest has grown in recent years.
