Weitz also provided supply chain purchasing services for steel, windows,

“We are very pleased with the Trillium Woods project and want to thank
all of the team members for their outstanding efforts. The construction
of the community was made possible through hundreds of individuals
utilizing their unique talents to create a beautiful home for the
residents of Trillium Woods. The happiness and excitement displayed by
