The developers of Ironwood, the $1.1 billion golf resort community coming to the East End and North Side of Grand Cayman, have named the construction manager for infrastructure works on the project.
The company has appointed Wharton-Smith International LLC in the role, in which the firm will manage the construction of the golf course and infrastructure of the Ironwood development.
“I love Cayman and the Cayman people. Our prior projects support our commitment to provide opportunities to our Cayman employees including, where needed, skills training and creating opportunities for local companies to participate in the project. We are delighted to return to Cayman and work with the developers of Ironwood on this exciting golf and community project,” said David V Hayes, vice president of Wharton-Smith International LLC. “Ironwood will be home to the first Arnold Palmer designed golf course in the Caribbean; positioning Cayman to become a global golf destination. WSI is proud to manage the construction of the infrastructure and golf courses on the project.”
WSI has managed a number of golf resort development projects in the Caribbean, including the Albany, Atlantis and Bakers Bay Golf projects in the Bahamas and others in the United States Virgin Islands.
“We are extremely pleased to have Wharton-Smith Inc on board as our construction manager for complete infrastructure works and golf construction on Ironwood,” said David Moffitt, Ironwood’s developer. “Their history of successfully competing in the Caribbean, along with an experienced leadership team are key reasons Ironwood along with Arnold Palmer Properties have chosen WSI to oversee this critical component, which is the anchor of the Ironwood development.”
