Connor & Gaskins Unlimited is beginning construction on Rebecca’s and The Maddox, a state-of-the-art wine venue and private-member wine club, by local businesswoman Rebecca Maddox. The project is located in East Naples across from Celebration Park and has a projected competition date of August 2022.
A groundbreaking event took place at the jobsite on July 16 with many of the individuals who are involved in the project. CGU is committed to cohesively working with the client, architect and interior design team to create a sustainable building that achieves performance specifications and design intent while utilizing mechanical systems at the highest standards.
“This project is an opportunity to work with a talented team of designers and entrepreneurs to create a state-of-the-art destination in Naples,” said Andrew Twetan, vice president/partner of Connor & Gaskins Unlimited. “At the end of the day, a successful project comes down to the synergy between all the team members and a unified vision, and this project has all of these elements.”
CGU’s qualified, in-house technical design team, were able to assist the team to create a high-performance building.
“Being able to consult with our in-house professional staff with many years of engineering experience allows us to jump many hurdles while saving money and time during a project, especially one like this venue,” said Rowland Hand, Vice President of CGU Transportation and eServices. “This project entails a thorough analysis and understanding of its structural engineering, sustainability and performance, and we are confident having well-qualified engineers on our team to lead with expertise in this area.”
The venue’s Californian-esque aesthetic, features an open-air design with an abundance of natural light; a balanced mix of modern and warmth; and a combination of crisp, neutral materials and dark wood elements. The luxurious and distinctive design looks to parallel the level of service and membership status offered at the venue.
