Featuring studio, one, two, and loft style apartment homes for rent, Radius offers unbeatable downtown and Lake Eola views. Top drawer amenities include a seventh-floor amenity deck with heated swimming pool, fire side seating, outdoor grills, outdoor yoga space and bocce ball court. Radius is a community that truly lives up to its name, placing lucky residents at the center of it all.


This was a big job—literally—featuring a 13-story, 389-unit multifamily residential complex with a six-story attached parking garage with retail space. Colwill Engineering Technologies was responsible for installing the building’s integrated telecommunications and security system, which consisted of the internal unit wiring for TV, telephone and data connections. Our high-tech, high-skilled installation also included CCTV surveillance cameras and access control and card reader systems manufactured by Brivo Systems. These inventive devices allow Radius tenants to use their smart phones as their mobile credential, allowing them to easily unlock doors and amenities.

Colwill Engineering Electrical (CEE) was involved in the project from the outset on a design assist basis, working with Ingenuity to keep the project in budget. In addition to review and cost input all systems from the structure of the service entrance equipment through apartment panels, circuitry, and fixture and fan selections the project was planned out to assure the maximum efficiency in installation through pre-fabrication of components wherever possible. CEE was responsible for all electrical systems. The project was not without challenges, but these were overcome by creative ideas and resourcefulness. Not only was the project constructed for the most part through the pandemic, but there were also some interesting unknown underground conditions and utility issues that had to be solved to keep the project on track.


Jack Jennings & Sons, an iconic family-owned and operated construction contractor in Orlando, served as general contractor, while Baker Barrios served as the project’s architects. While our Orlando team handled most of the great work on the project, the scale of the job allowed us to leverage Colwill staff from both our Tampa and Orlando offices.


The project commenced in August 2020 and was completed in November 2021. Staffed during a peak pandemic timeframe, the project required Colwill staff to utilize every protective measure available to ensure that staff and other contractors were protected from COVID-19. Despite the hurdles and added measures, our team ensured that every project milestone was met with ease. We couldn’t be prouder of everyone who played a part in this project’s success. The ability to overcome obstacles is a big part of what we do!
