The Jacksonville-based health care tech company will move to Deerwood South after a $1 million renovation.
Forcura LLC is taking steps to open its new headquarters in Deerwood South, at southeast Butler and Southside boulevards.
The city is reviewing a permit application for Forcura’s expanded headquarters at a construction cost of $1 million.
Forcura also is working with a new Silicon Valley private equity investor to expand and innovate.
Accel-KKR announced July 16 it invested in Forcura, but did not disclose the amount.
The investment keeps current Forcura management, including CEO Craig Mandeville, in place.
Forcura told the city it will invest $2.15 million in real estate improvements, information technology equipment, furniture and fixtures.
Forcura is a Jacksonville-based health care technology company. In brief, the company manages document workflow and secure communication for post-acute care providers.
Tenant Contractors Inc. is the contractor for the build-out of almost 27,000 square feet of office space on the full fourth floor at 10151 Deerwood Park Blvd.,
Connie Turner Interiors Inc. is the space designer.
The project’s completion is Oct. 19.
Forcura announced May 27 it will add 115 jobs by the end of 2022 and open the new headquarters with the help of city and state financial incentives.
At the time, it employed 73 people in Jacksonville.
As of June 2019, it leased 14,500 square feet of space at 4600 Touchton Road in the Deerwood North office complex.
The city and state approved $690,000, or $6,000 per job, in Qualified Target Industry Tax Refund incentives for the expansion. The state will pay 80% and the city will refund 20%.
The 115 jobs will have an average annual wage of $71,663.
Forcura said its rentable new office space is 29,951 square feet, and the usable area – excluding the common areas – is 26,940 square.
Mandeville founded the company in 2012 in Jacksonville.
It expanded to provide data and analytics and plans to offer workflow automation at the end of the year.
“Our company’s origins are here in Jacksonville, and in the eight years since, the city has provided incredible talent, mentoring and business community support that have directly impacted our success,” Mandeville said in the May release.
“I am sincerely dedicated to elevating Jacksonville’s profile as a technology hub,” he said.
