In 1974 Tracy Forrest founded Winter Park Construction (now known as WPC). With humble beginnings that included mostly residential renovation projects, it was only a matter of time before Winter Park Construction's credo – do the right thing, every time – attracted more complex construction assignments. Today, WPC's team is led by multifaceted construction experts with a combined 200+ years of experience.
Committed to giving back, WPC actively enriches the community, understanding that our success is intertwined with the vitality of the neighborhoods we serve. We invest not just in physical infrastructure, but in social foundations, contributing to a legacy that extends beyond construction.
Tracy Forrest guided WPC along a successful path of strategic growth with a focus on renovations, timeshare resorts, hotels, senior living facilities, and apartment complexes. Tracy grew the company to become one of the ENR 400 largest General Contractors in the US and one of the 200 largest privately-owned companies in Florida. Throughout his over 50 years in the construction industry, Tracy fostered an environment of continuous improvement amongst WPC employees. Tracy passed away on October 12, 2020, from an aggressive form of brain cancer.
