Orlando’s Ron Whalen Adds Licensed Certified General Contractor (Florida) Designation to Professional Credentials
August 25, 2011

Congratulations to the Building Group’s Ron Whalen, LEED AP BD+C, Vice President based in Orlando, for becoming a Licensed Certified General Contractor in the state of Florida. Whalen received notice last week that he had successfully passed the rigorous, three-part General Contractor’s Licensing Exam administered by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. The two-day exam — which totaled 16 hours of testing — required nearly 100 personal hours of advance preparation.

Frank Holley, Executive Vice President, noted, “It is significant for our Orlando operation to have a person of Ron’s caliber achieve this designation. Ron will now be added as a 'qualified agent' for our permitting purposes.”

Whalen heads up preconstruction for our Florida regional office. He joined the Building Group in 2008.
