WG Pitts, an award-winning General Contracting, Architecture, Construction and Development Management firm, is providing design and construction services for an expansion project at the Ronald McDonald House, located at 824 Children’s Way in Jacksonville.

The project, scheduled for completion in summer 2016, will include a rooftop garden, an interactive playroom, a commercial volunteer kitchen, a learning center, a fitness center and a monumental stair tower. The project is part of an expansion that will increase the Ronald McDonald House from 42,000 square feet to 65,000 square feet.

“We are pleased the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville selected our firm to design and build their rooftop garden, interactive playroom and other elements of their building expansion project,” said WG Pitts President Will Pitts. “The Ronald McDonald House provides much needed support to families when they need a helping hand, and we are grateful to be contributing to its caring and healing environment.”

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville Executive Director Diane Boyle commended WG Pitts for its exemplary efforts.

“WG Pitts has brought its professional expertise and innovative team to our expansion project while sharing our mission of being a ‘home away from home’ for our families,” she said.

The rooftop garden will provide an important new space at the Ronald McDonald House. It will support a health and wellness program by providing a beautiful green space for families and their guests to relax, visit, reflect and enjoy the outdoors. It will include a pergola, planters, a fountain, a pavilion and garden seating.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville serves as a “home away from home,” providing lodging, meals, transportation and a community of compassionate care to families who need to be near a hospital for their child’s treatment.
