Earlier today, we were extraordinarily proud to host the groundbreaking for the new Courtyard by Marriott - Pensacola West on site where I-10 meets W 9 Mile Road. This 124 room, 6 story hotel will be the first hotel in Florida as traffic comes into the state along the I-10 corridor from Alabama, and is situated at the apex of commercial development within Pensacola, just down the road from the Navy Federal Credit Union campus.

We would like to thank our partners who attended today's event, to include Strand Hospitality Services, Valentino Holdings and The Benchmark Group. We would also like to thank representatives from the Navy Federal Credit Union who attended and we look forward to supporting your continued growth in Pensacola. Additionally, we would like to recognize Professor Andrew Holdnak of the Department of Global Hospitality and Tourism Management in the UWF College of Business at the University of West Florida for attending.

Thank you to local business leaders with Beach Community Bank, Servis1st Bank, Cox Business and Hospitality Depot for attending today's event.

Of course, we would like to thank members of our design, development and construction team from Harvill, Inc., Pars Co, LLC and McKIM & CREED for their presence today and going forward.

Finally, thank you to McGuire's Irish Pub in downtown Pensacola for hosting our luncheon - it was outstanding!

It's great to get underway with this new development! The Courtyard by Marriott ~ Pensacola West will be the first hotel you come to in Florida on Interstate 10 as you enter from Alabama and the first hotel at the interchange where the Navy Federal Credit Union is nearing completion on the third phase of their one million square foot campus.

We would like to thank everyone that came to our Grand Opening celebration last week at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Crestview. This event was originally scheduled last fall shortly after the hotel opened; however, it was delayed due to Hurricane Michael striking the Florida Panhandle and displacing so many of our neighbors. We would like to thank and congratulate our partners at Strand Hospitality Services, Fairfield by Marriott, Marriott Hotels and The Benchmark Group for attending the event. Additionally, we would like to thank those individuals and teams who were part of the development process of this hotel... To include Dalrymple Sallis Architecture, Pars Co, LLC, NOVA Engineering & Environmental, LLC, Joe DeReuil Associates Structural Engineers, McKIM & CREED, Harvill Inc. and others. ...

Did you know that you should have your carpet professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months? Not just for your benefit but for the benefit of the rug.

This was an excellent presentation on the latest quality products. Happy I attended and thanks to all who made this possible.

I believe what separates this builder from others is that Venture Construction is a company where the buyer has a voice and a seat at the conference table – thank you for making room for us. We are grateful for their patience, professionalism and passion toward getting it right. If we had it our way, everyone would have a chance to own a home built by Venture Construction.
