Florida Cattlemen’s Association Headquarters

This project was a design build by W & J Construction.  The building is unique in that the Cattlemen’s Association wanted to capture the old Florida “Cracker” appearance while utilizing the latest technology and materials available.

The structure has approximately 7,500 square feet of conditioned area with about 7,000 square feet of wrap-around porch and outdoor pavilion for barbecue and social functions.

This unique building is concrete stem wall and floors, 2 x 6 framing with plywood covered with “Hardi-Board” lap siding and cedar trim.  The porch has cedar trimmed post and guardrails and the roof is standing seam metal which adds to the “Cracker” look.

To add to the charm of the facility, cypress from the local area was used in the interior as a wainscot and for the ceiling soffit trim throughout.  The executive office was completely finished with cypress.

The building also features upstairs storage area, large social hall with kitchen and lobby area.  The remainder of the building serves the business operations of the F.C.A.
