Give Kids the World Village Gets a Makeover

January 28, 2014

Give Kids the World Village is a non-profit organization that creates magical, free vacations for the families of children who are facing life threatening illnesses. The Village celebrated its 25th Anniversary with an Extreme Village Makeover. Wyndham Vacation Ownership spearheaded a two week effort to completely renovate 88 vacation villas between January 12th and 25th.

GPD Group donated design and documentation, permitting assistance, and project management in support of the project. Our on-site efforts during the intense construction phase included everything from providing detail sketches, working with the City of Kissimmee’s Building Department to facilitate timely inspections, performing nightly walk-throughs and reporting progress, and addressing questions from the eight contractors working 24 hours a day to complete the project.

The project was completed on-time, wrapping up just before midnight on Saturday, January 25th. GPD Group would like to congratulate Wyndham Resorts and the executive team at Give Kids the World Village on a job well done. We would also like to commend our own Angie Wells, Jeff Evans, Tim Matheny and Jeannie Owens for their time and service to such a worthwhile cause.
