SCOOP

BY SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY OCT 14, 2017

Willis A. Smith Construction has always been proud of their Lakewood Ranch headquarters, but never more so than when Hurricane Irma gave it a challenge. The building built to withstand a category 4 hurricane, housed 44 people, 12 dogs, two cats and a parrot named, Bamboo. Inflatable beds, pillows, blankets, board and video games, lots of food, plenty of water and the occasional adult beverage made this facility more than just an office. Anxiety and exhaustion gave way to relief, rest and laughter as the storm passed giving those who took shelter a unique and memorable experience that will last well after Irma.
