Secure and Protect this Holiday Season

Children may see a vacant job site with parked equipment, uncovered trenches, or buildings under construction as an imaginary playground while being unaware of the trip, fall and cave-in hazards.

Fort Gillem makes way for new developments

Fort Gillem, a U.S. Army base south of the Atlanta-Hartsfield International Airport, started a phased decommissioning process in 2005 with the sale of 1,170 acres to the City of Forest Park.

Formerly known as the Citrus Bowl

Built in 1936, the Citrus Bowl was the place to hold bowl games, sporting events and out­door exhibitions in the greater Orlando area. When it was built, the stadium was an architectural marvel. Over the next 80 years as crowds grew and more modern stadiums were built, the Citrus Bowl looked worn by comparison.

citrus-bowlIn late 2014, bids were let for $207 million to rebuild and modernize the 60,000-seat stadi­um, adding one-fifth more seat­ing and other amenities. However, the contractors had only nine months to tear down the sta­dium’s entire lower bowl and re­build the facility from the blades of green grass to the skylights.
