JK2 Scenic, JK2 Construction honored by ABC Central Florida
APOPKA, Fla. (November 1, 2021) —The JK2 family of companies has a reputation for excellence in the construction industry—and that reputation is growing. Both JK2 Scenic and JK2 Construction were honored with Eagle Awards for Excellence in Construction by the Associated Builders and Contractors of Central Florida for the fourth year in a row.
Both companies were honored for their work on the Loews Royal Pacific Resort Lobby, which they worked on together. Additionally, JK2 Scenic was honored for its work on the Bourne Stuntacular store.
“When I started JK2, I wanted this company to be built on relationships,” said JK2 Founder Paul Holmes. “While we’ve grown and expanded over these 30 years, I’m very proud that the reputation for excellence and integrity remains a core of every project we work on, and that is reflected in this recognition from our industry.”
Both JK2 Construction and JK2 Scenic were honored for work on the Loews Royal Pacific Resort Lobby, which included a complete renovation of the Orchid Lounge and the creation of a new grab-and-go food area, Tuk Tuk Market. JK2 Construction completely demolished and reconstructed the spaces, including interior finishes, HVAC and electrical distribution, framing, drywall and more. JK2 Scenic added finishing touches, including fabricating stone-cladded reception desks and the impressive main bar and center bar island.
JK2 Scenic also took home an Eagle Award for its work on the Bourne Stuntacular store, which replaced the former Five & Dime at Universal Studios Florida. JK2 Scenic completed the retail wallbays, which include LED lighting, as well as shelving, nesting tables, floor fixtures and the POS station.
The Eagle Awards are presented yearly by ABC Central Florida in recognition of truly excellent projects.
This is the fourth year in which both companies have received honors and the sixth year in which JK2 has been recognized. The companies have received 22 awards during that time.
The ABC EIC award ceremony took place Saturday, October 30, at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate.
