ARC+ is proud to announce that Buildworks, Inc., is a Founding Sponsor of the Architectural Research Collaborative. We would like to personally thank the founding partners, Joey Woodworth and Juan Gabaldon for their assistance in the creation of and participation in the ARC+ Buildgreen program.  

"At Buildworks we believe the best advertisement for an Architect is their finished product, and we believe strongly that the closer the collaboration between Architect and builder the better the built product.  That is why we are so excited about helping to create ARC+ and specifically the ARC+ Buildgreen program," said Juan Gabaldon.

ARC+ and Florida International University's College of Architecture + The Arts (CARTA) have embarked on a collaborative effort to create enhanced educational programs and opportunities for architecture students and the South Florida community.

“As a builder with an Architectural background, I understand the challenges students face and know the importance of real world experience. Buildworks and South Florida are both beneficiaries of a highly skilled workforce, and we are thrilled to be a founding sponsor of the Architectural Research Collaborative. I view this as a natural extension of our constant commitment to building a better Miami and our continued support of FIU and the Miami Beach Urban Studios, ” said Joey Woodworth, President of Buildworks, Inc.

Throughout the semester, Buildworks will be hosting site visits for FIU students at two current projects under construction on Miami Beach, 8 West Rivo Alto and 430 West Dilido Drive. We will be giving students valuable insight into real world construction experience and the translation of their designs into the built environment.

A little education can go a long way to inspire change for the future. Please join us in congratulating Buildworks for their commitment to the future of Miami . Please visit Buildworks here to learn more about them and the good work they do.
