The new clean modern design features a broad overhanging sun shade. A currently popular design feature, it is useful to reduce the amount of sunlight heating the interior of our air conditioned buildings, saving energy costs. And the roof is covered with solar panels.

Other firms involved in the project are: H.G. High Construction Co., Orlando, design-builder; ; WBQ Design and Engineering, Orlando; Milan Engineering, Winter Park; Bellomo Herbert, Longwood, landscape architect; Southeastern Surveyor, Orlando; TLC Engineering, Orlando
