On August 31, 2020, the main office building of our Jacksonville headquarters suffered a devastating fire. A building known across Jacksonville for its iconic baby blue color was unfortunately unfit for use. Mr. Gay’s office, including decades of mementos, were sadly destroyed and employees were displaced and forced to move their offices to other buildings. Through the horrible tragedy in our company’s history, though, our people came together and persevered.
Two years later, on the 2nd anniversary of that fire, W. W. Gay broke ground on our new HQ building. Follow along here for updates, photos, and videos of the progress, including the live feed camera from the job site featured below.
