American House residents will have their own private bleachers and complimentary parking for the softball games that will be played at Bonita Springs Community Park on Pine Avenue. Last January more than 1,000 watched the Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Team take on squads from the Lee County Sheriff's Office and the Bonita Springs Fire Control and Rescue District.

The idea that came from Estero, Fla. resident David Van Sleet, a retired employee of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The Wounded Warriors have played games against politicians, sports stars and television celebrities since the team's inception in 2011.

Most of the team's 30 members are bilateral amputees — missing a leg below the knee — while some are missing a hand or arm.

LandSouth Construction Stops Work for National Fall Prevention Stand-DownTo Raise Awareness on Preventing Fall Hazards

Jun 6, 2015

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – LandSouth Construction, a Jacksonville, Fla. based general contractor specializing in multifamily, senior housing and mixed use development, took part in the National Fall Prevention Stand-Down effort.

The program serves to raise awareness of fall hazards in construction. Work was halted on all their job sites to talk directly to workers about safety. LandSouth Construction joined with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in the second annual Stand-Down to focus on preventing accidental injuries and catastrophic deaths.

“The Stand-Down focused on fall hazards and reinforcing the importance of fall prevention,” noted LandSouth’s Vice President of Operations Joe Passkiewicz. “The event was held last Monday on all our job sites. We stopped work to address this important aspect of construction work with all our employees, subcontractors and vendors.”

Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction workers, accounting for 291 of the 828 construction fatalities recorded in 2013. Those deaths were preventable. Fall prevention safety standards were among the top 10 most frequently cited OSHA standards, during fiscal year 2014.

"We all share a commitment to understand that safety is not a luxury — it is a necessity. Our goal is to work towards preventing these tragedies through innovative and collaborative efforts like the Stand-Down,” said Jeff Ryan, a superintendent for LandSouth in Jacksonville, Fla.

LandSouth Construction is currently working on projects throughout the Southeast including apartments and mixed use developments in Delray Beach, Oviedo, Sanford, Jacksonville and Orlando Fla., Collegedale, Tenn. Mount Pleasant, S.C and senior housing in Bonita Springs, Fla.

At the Integra Village jobsite in Orlando the safety meeting was held in a parking lot. The main safety topic, “You Are Responsible”, emphasized that everyone is responsible to ensure a safe work place. Topics included Hard Hats, Personal fall arrest systems, specifically relating to man lifts, temporary safety, or guard, rails, personal protective equipment and housekeeping or clean up.

"The Stand-Down serves as an important opportunity for worksites to recognize the fall hazards that cause them, train employees and workers on how to avoid them so that these senseless tragedies can be prevented once and for all,” said Michael Hulon, a project superintendent in Orlando.

A Certificate of Participation, signed by Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez, was posted at each LandSouth Construction job site following the Stand-Down.

A national program launched by OSHA Last year's Stand-Down reached more than one million workers. This year, OSHA's goal is for more than 20,000 Stand-Downs involving more than 3 million workers. If the goal is met, Stand-Down will have touched almost 4 out of 10 construction workers in the country.

"Construction workers are part of our team. They help build our communities. As an industry we must look to keep them safe by preventing these tragedies," noted LandSouth Construction President and CEO James Pyle. "This safety Stand-Down serves as an important opportunity for everyone to take the time to learn how to recognize and prevent fall hazards."

In its 16 year history, LandSouth Construction has completed more than 10,000 multifamily units, including apartments, senior living, condominiums, and townhomes and made the prestigious National Multifamily Housing Council’s 2015 Top 25 ranking of the nation’s largest apartment contractors.

Precision Fire Systems is working with LandSouth on two multifamily communities, Integra Village in Sanford, Fla. and Integra Cove near SeaWorld in Orlando, Fla.

“They consistently have gone above and beyond as it relates to meeting our schedule and their scope of work. They have approached the Integra Cove project with experience and confidence to meet our expectations,” said LandSouth project manager Mario Ibanez.

The company started in 2013. Their team of owners, President Skip Bateman and vice presidents Brad Jenkins and Kip Pederson, have been working together in the fire sprinkler industry for 17 years.

"Precision Fire Systems has done a great job communicating with us to ensure that everyone is on the same page. They have done a phenomenal job on Integra Village, which is exactly what we expected," said project manager Rob Vergnolle.

The company provides automatic sprinkler systems for commercial, industrial and retail buildings, including apartments, automobile dealerships, office buildings, institutional buildings and modular structures.

“Collectively, we have managed, designed and constructed hundreds of multifamily, hotel, commercial and industrial fire sprinkler installations. We currently have 10 multifamily: five hotels, three distribution warehouses and various other projects in process or recently completed,” Bateman said.

LandSouth Construction is currently working on projects throughout the Southeast including apartments in Jacksonville, Oviedo, Sanford, Delray Beach and Orlando Fla., Collegedale, Tenn. and senior housing in Bonita Springs, Fla. In its 17 year history, LandSouth Construction has completed more than 10,000 multifamily units, including apartments, senior living, condominiums, and townhomes.

“It feels like a team effort working with LandSouth Construction,” noted Bateman. “We participated in preconstruction value engineering to assure the scope of work and bids would be their most competitive. The experience moved on to project managers who bought out the jobs and resolved pending scope issues. LandSouth has demonstrated all of the qualities a subcontractor looks for in a general contractor.”

LandSouth is committed to innovation in the construction process, taking a fresh approach to a design challenge, strengthening client and partner communications, empowering superintendents to make key decisions in real time and using new products and materials to promote energy efficiency.
