With tourism being the leading industry in Central Florida, it is no surprise that entertainment facilities are a mainstay in Cornerstone's work experience. The company has performed work for general contractors at many of Central Florida's leading theme parks and resorts including Universal Studios, Walt Disney World and Sea World. Among other attractions in the City of Orlando, CCS has performed work at the Citrus Bowl, the Amway Center, and the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
