Accelerated Contractors’ New Construction & Remodeling Projects
Accelerated Contractors, working with the Kiddie Academy Franchisee and local owners, built a 10,000 square foot state-of-the-art child care facility to serve up to 170 children ages 0 to 5 years of age, including staff of 20. Kiddie Academy’s ventilation system is equipped with infrared lighting that kills 99.7 percent of airborne germs on the first pass and 100 percent on the second pass – making the childcare center the first in history to use the infrared technology that is used in surgery centers. The center has a full commercial kitchen, capable of delivering 200 meals twice each day, and a nearly 4,000-square-foot portico on the outside to allow up to eight cars at a time to drop and pick up children and be protected from the elements.
Kiddie Academy has more than 150 locations nationwide and has been a leader in education-based child care for 35 years. The Jacksonville location will use a curriculum created to promote each child’s intellectual, social, physical and emotional growth. Visit Kiddie Academy at 14975 Walden Springs Way Rd, Jacksonville, Fl 32258.
Jollibee© is the largest fast-food restaurant chain in Asia and the 9th largest in the world – larger than Burger King® and it is loved by customers. As the General Contractor for Jollibee’s© first Florida restaurant, Accelerated Contractors built “the very best building we have ever built” (according to the Jollibee© President at the grand opening). Accelerated’s Managing Member, Brad Hollett, traveled to California prior to construction to get a sense of how current restaurants were built and to improve inefficiencies. Opening week drew in record crowds selling over $350,000. The store has continued to be a favorite in Jacksonville.
The first Jollibee© store in the USA was opened in 1998 in Daly City, California. Catering to the Filipino and Filipino-American families living in the area, Jollibee© brought them the familiar feeling of home. Since then, Jollibee© has endeavored to endear itself to the Filipino communities and locals in every area where it operates by offering quality great-tasting food and friendly customer service with a warm and homey ambiance. Visit Jollibee© at 11884 Atlantic Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32225.
When the opportunity to build a state-of-the-art medical facility was offered to Accelerated Contractors, our team was excited at the challenge. We interviewed doctors and staff to find what they liked about their current office, what concerned them in regards to safety, confidentiality, and ease of use, and what their wish list was for a new office. The results are medical offices with improved efficiency.

To accommodate a growing business, Accelerated Contractors built a 43,000 square foot tilt-wall warehouse. The design incorporates office space for the sister companies’ offices and warehouse.

Built in 1906, Jax Brick House was home to Jacob’s Jewelers’ employees. After a succession of owners, the building had fallen into disrepair. Now a private residence with 5 condos, the remodel focused on keeping the feel of the historical Springfield structure and while adding modern conveniences. Accelerated Contractors replaced an external staircase to all 3 levels, removed and relocated most of the internal structure, and upgraded the plumbing and electric. Now the home is a showcase for families to gather. Drive by the home at 115 W. 2nd Street, Jacksonville, FL 32208.
When Sweet Frog expanded into North Florida, Accelerated Contractors was ready to meet the challenge. Accelerated Contractors design/built 16 stores throughout Florida in 9 months. When faced with the challenge of creating a unique background for a main wall, our team used individual glass tiles in the corporate color scheme to create a random pattern seen at all locations. To keep the cost of the tiles as low as possible, we searched the globe and found a company in China who would allow us to purchase the tiles, in bulk, at a discount ($2 per sq ft!).

Dr. Carvell approached Accelerated Contractors with the desire to build an eye clinic that would last, increase productivity, provide patients and employees with a comfortable environment. Our team built an office that has helped Dr. Carvell grow her business.
Carvell & Associates began with Dr Blair Roberts opening his doors in the 1960’s on San Juan and Roosevelt. As the practice and the city began to develop, Dr Roberts moved his practice to Blanding Blvd. Dr Carvell joined Dr Roberts in 1990, took on the practice in 2007 and they continued to practice together until his retirement in 2010.
As the practice continues to grow, they moved to our beautiful new office with more room for patient care and cutting edge technology in ocular disease management and a wide variety of contact lens options for almost every prescription and ocular surface.
