Posted on by A F

ParsCo is renovating the Villegas Medical Surgery Center in Pensacola Florida.

Dr. Leo Villegas is a board certified surgeon who trained at Harvard Medical School and completed a two-year hepatobiliary and surgical oncology fellowship at Duke University. He specializes in the advanced surgical treatment of liver, pancreatic and gastrointestinal tumors. Based in Pensacola,he provides multidisciplinary care for patients who previously would have had to travel outside the area for care.

Dr. Villegas conducted research at Duke in laparoscopy and the use of robotics to minimize invasive surgery. He uses his specialized training in laparoscopic surgery to perform the least invasive procedure possible. Laparoscopic surgical treatment is an alternative to radiation and has been found to enhance quality of life and minimize recovery time.

We are proud to provide an updated Surgery Center for Dr. Villegas.

The 8(a) Advantage- ParsCo Construction

Posted on by A F

SBA 8(a) Sole Source Benefits To Our Clients

The Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) Sole Source vehicle enables government agencies to engage in direct buy contracts with 8(a) certified contractors.

Parsco’s 8(a)¬† and SBA business development certification is active and valid through 2026.

8a Construction Florida ParsCo

Section 8(a) of the Small Business Act as amended by Congress, created the 8(a) business development program. This program enables SBA to assist small disadvantaged firms to develop their businesses. In applying to the program, a firm is rigorously evaluated on its ownership, operations, financial health, and past performance. Once accepted, the firm is required to provide SBA a detailed business plan and annually show continued success as a viable, strong business entity. Firms that are approved are certified by the SBA for a period of nine years. The SBA has signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with Federal Agencies allowing them to contract directly with certified 8(a) firms. Participants can receive sole source contracts, up to a ceiling of $4.0 million for goods and services, and $6.5M for manufacturing.

Program Manager Benefits
The 8(a) sole source vehicle provides agencies a simplified and shortened acquisition procedure.

Greatly reduced cycle time: the time required to award an 8(a) sole source contract has been dramatically reduced and can be accomplished in a few weeks.
Lowered administrative costs: procurement process costs associated with a lengthy contracting process are reduced to a minimum.

Best price value: your contracting agency negotiates with ParsCo directly to get the best value.

Your organization receives small business credit for promoting small business participation.

Contracts can be initiated with a simple high level statement of work.
There is no protest process that could delay the start of needed work.

Your organization is assured of getting the company you want, know and trust to conduct the work.

Simple Steps to Establish 8(a) Sole Source Construction Contracts with ParsCo

The Government program manager or interested party develops a statement of work, prepares a government estimate, and obtains the necessary funding.

The Government program manager or interested party chooses ParsCo to perform the work and submits a procurement request to your contracting officer.

The agency contracting officer prepares and submits an ‚ÄúOffer Letter‚ÄĚ to ParsCo‚Äôs SBA Business Development Specialist, Jay Choi:

Jay W. Choi
Business Opportunity Specialist
North Florida District Office
U.S. Small Business Administration
Office  (904) 443-1968
Fax       (202) 741-6671
jay.choi@sba.gov

SBA processes the Offer Letter and returns it to the agency contracting officer who submits the Statement of Work and Request for Proposal or Quotation to ParsCo.

ParsCo submits the proposal which is evaluated and negotiated (if necessary) by the contracting agency.

The contract is awarded to ParsCo.

On The Job Site: Heat Stress Prevention

Posted on by A F

Heat Stress Prevention

Blair Chapman, Pensacola FL

There are a variety of steps crews can take before heat-related illness strikes on a job site, including:

1.¬†Acclimate slowly: It generally takes five days of working at least 1¬Ĺ hours per day for the body to become acclimated. Check weather forecasts for heat wave information.

2. Dress for summer. Lightweight, light-colored clothing reflects heat and sunlight and helps your body maintain normal temperatures. Long sleeves and pants are still necessary to protect your body from flying debris and other safety hazards.

3. Wear a hat or sun visor.

4. Eat small meals and salty snacks throughout the day.

5. Drink plenty of water or other non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated fluids. Your body needs fluids to keep cool, and you should drink them even if you don’t feel thirsty. Drink one pint of water every 15 to 20 minutes in extreme heat. Urine should be clear. If it’s dark, you are probably dehydrated.

6. Do not take salt tablets unless specified by a physician.

7. Take frequent breaks in shaded or air-conditioned areas.

8. Use the buddy system to keep an eye on your co-workers.

9. Some medications can make you more susceptible to heat illnesses. Check with your doctor or pharmacist to find out if any medicine you are taking could affect you while working in the heat.

10. Do the heaviest work during the coolest part of the day. This is usually between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m.

Cottage Charm in Historic Seville

Posted on by A F

Cottage Charm in Historic Seville
Treasures of Pensacola’s Historic District
by Sharon Duplantis
pensacolatreasures.com/

Purchase on Amazon:

Recently discovered artifacts in Pensacola, Florida, have unearthed the first Spanish colony, founded by Don Tristan de Luna in 1559. Since then, hurricanes, repeated conquests-by the French, British, and Spanish-fires, and civil war have shaped a struggling, adaptive settlement in the heart of what is now known as the Pensacola Historic District. Most of the homes still standing in the district were built between the early and late 19th century by people of diverse culture and circumstances.

This collection of photographs explores that diversity – from the grand homes surrounding Seville Square to the tiny Creole cottages and shotgun houses adorned with charming Victorian millwork. Striking photographs capture the dignity and beauty of these historic homes, offering an appreciation of this unique, intriguing era. Through these pages, you can envision those who lived here and what happened on these streets and in those houses over 100 years ago .

HBA Meets with ECUA / City of Pensacola on Road Restoration Specifications

Posted on by A F

(Not pictured Steve Geci of Geci Engineers).

The Home Builders Association of West Florida hosted a meeting yesterday afternoon with representatives from Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) and the City of Pensacola to gain a better understanding of the water/sewer connections and roadway cuts.

After discussing the issue, City Engineer Derrik Owens will evaluate best practices to restore a roadway to see if there is an inexpensive way make repairs that will not compromise the integrity of the road. ECUA, who on April 19 said it would not cut or restore a roadway in order to make a water or sewer connection, will continue provide the cuts, hookups and restoration of a roadway with a temporary patch (This change was made on 4/23).

The permit holder is responsible for following the City’s procedures to restore the roadway to the City’s specifications. The main issue had to do with the milling of the road, where ECUA estimates ranged from $8,000 to $10,000 per patch because of the large milling equipment needed. After evaluating the costs of this, it was never the City’s intention for a homeowner/builder/developer to absorb the estimated expense. The milling can be done with a hand held milling machine or a skid steer with a milling attachment at a much cheaper cost.

The City will look into providing this service for a fee. The HBA appreciates the leadership of ECUA and the City of Pensacola who agreed to meet on very short notice. Also, thank you to ECUA Board Member Vicki Campbell for helping with this issue.
