Due to unforeseen circumstances, the opening of the Orange City Racing & Card Club has been postponed until early March. A shortage of materials, ranging from A/C roof top units to light fixtures, has caused a domino effect on the entire construction schedule. For example, the false floors in the poker room cannot be installed until the light fixtures come in because the false floors cannot bear the weight of the scissor lifts.
As the Nation recovers from the “great recession”, Florida is experiencing a construction boom. It is great news for the local economy, but it is not so great for construction projects such as ours. Typical lead times for materials cannot be counted on if orders at the manufacturer are backlogged. We cannot expedite the process by adding labor because labor is useless without materials.
Rest assured that we are doing everything in our power to build a facility that we all can be proud of. We set a high standard here in Daytona and we will do it again in Orange City. I am excited for our future here in Daytona and in Orange City.
