PGT Custom Windows + Doors Breaks Ground for Child Care Center

N. VENICE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BreakingGroundPGT®
Custom Windows + Doors,
a subsidiary of PGT Innovations, (NYSE:
PGTI), commenced construction of an onsite child care facility during an
official groundbreaking ceremony held on Friday, April 21. To be
operated by the Sky Family YMCA, the PGT Child Care Center will offer
affordable, convenient child care services to PGT families with young
children, as well as other parents who work in the Triple Diamond
Commerce Park in North Venice, FL.

The 8,000-plus-square-foot facility will cost approximately $1.8
million, including the land purchase, and is slated for completion and
opening in the first quarter of 2018. The architect on the project is
Hall Architects. Willis A. Smith Construction is the general contractor.

The child care center will have the capacity to accommodate
approximately 100 children aged six weeks to five years old. In keeping
with child care programs operated by the YMCA, the PGT Child Care Center
will be fully licensed and accredited, and staffed by professionals
trained by the YMCA. The center will offer curriculum-based programs,
healthy meals and an outdoor playground. To accommodate parents working
various shifts, it will be open six days a week from 4:30 a.m. to 7:30
p.m., with flexible pick-up and drop-off policies.

“The cost of child care as a percent of living expenses has gone up not
only locally, but nationwide—therefore, we are excited to offer our team
members affordable, onsite child care. We believe the convenience and
affordability will set PGT apart as an employer of choice,” said Debbie
LaPinska, Vice President of Human Resources. “We hope our program and
facility will become a model for employers throughout our region.”
