Two Apopka-based construction firms owned by a father and son want to double their warehouse footprint, filing plans with the city for a new manufacturing facility to make concrete and rebar supplies for the industry.
Located at 644 E. 13th St., the 2.92-acre site is zoned for light industrial use, and is planned for a 42,068-square-foot pre-engineered metal building. A business affiliate paid $228,000 for the land in May 2016.
The site lies directly west of the long-established warehouse and office property for Adams Construction Contractors and Trinity Construction Products. That property, at 806 E. 13th St., offers just 26,258 square feet of conditioned warehouse space that Trinity's manufacturing process is now limited by.
Trinity Construction Products will have two manufacturing and assembly areas and two storage areas within the building. The company produces concrete and masonry products for homebuilders and subcontractors, new rebar assembled rebar cages and large-diameter anchor bolts for construction.
Anthony Wayne Adams Sr. is president of Adams Construction Contractors, and his sons Anthony Jr. and Aaron run Trinity. AFinal Development Plan for the project was reviewed on Oct. 25 by the city's Development Review Committee.
Work on the site in 2018 would start with clearing and grubbing, excavation of a drainage retention pond and then construction of the building and paved parking area.
