As we approach the midpoint of a very hot summer here in Daytona Beach, FL, new construction continues to expand, continuing what has been a busy year at D.G. Meyer already. We are pleased to see the local economy on the upswing, and look forward to seeing this thriving level of commerce continue.
The photos above and to the right are of the new construction involved in the expansion and renovation of Daytona Toyota Scion dealership that began last year. Toyota is moving the auto body center and some of the vehicle sales operations a half-mile north of the original location to property acquired on International Speedway Blvd.
Strasser Construction of Ormond Beach is the project’s general contractor. D.G. Meyer Inc. is among several local sub-contractors involved in this project, along with Giles Electric, G&W Plumbing, Atlas Glass and Fashion Tile.
After months of construction, the new New Smyrna Beach Chevrolet Dealership on State Road 44 is complete. The former site of this dealership on N. Dixie Freeway was closed down on July 5th, 2015, with the doors of the new facility opening on the 6th. D.G. Meyer, Inc. is proud to have been part of this construction team, and pleased to have completed another quality project in the Central Florida area.
A Grand Opening event, featuring a ribbon cutting ceremony and the presentation of a donation to the local Police Athletic League is slated for the evening of August 5th, 2015. D.G. Meyer Inc. offers our warm wishes and congratulations to the management and employees of New Smyrna Beach Chevrolet.
While you are enjoying the cook-outs, family get-togethers, beach, fireworks and other festivities this holiday weekend, take time to reflect on why we celebrate Independence Day. July 4th is so much more than just a holiday to break up the summer doldrums. It is the time to look back on all the people and events that made this country free, and brought us to the blessings and prosperity that we are favored with today.
Be safe as you celebrate.
Remember to handle fireworks and sparklers with respect.
Be aware of fire hazards, and keep a safe distance from lit fireworks.
Supervise children closely, and never let them light sparklers.
Keep a supply of water nearby as a precaution.
If grilling, be careful and heed all safety precautions. Make sure kids and pets stay away from the grill.
Be mindful of the Florida heat as you play outdoors this weekend. Protect your skin from the sun, stay hydrated and seek shade if you begin to feel light-headed or dizzy.
Plan ahead in the event of lightening and storms, which are very common in the afternoon and evenings this time of year. Make certain shelter is available.
D.G. Meyer Inc. wishes everyone a very Safe and Fun Holiday Weekend.
