40 • September 2015 Orlando-based Finfrock Construction, Inc. is operating as devel- oper, contractor, and architect of the new $30 million waterfront Hyatt House in Naples, Fla. The hotel will feature 183 suite-style rooms with a resort-style pool, indoor/outdoor cocktail lounge, marina, and adjoining parking garage. It is scheduled for open- ing in early 2016. Finfrock is applying its recently introduced DualDeck build- ing system, which integrates mechanical, electrical, and plumb- ing systems into precast concrete panels with unprecedented flexibility. Fabricated on a new precast/prestressed line at the producer's Apoka, Fla., headquarters, the DualDeck suits the upscale design and luxury amenities of a premium lodging prop- erty, while significantly reducing on-site disruption and com- pressing construction schedules. To accommodate the new line, Finfrock built a 70,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing facility at its 93-acre campus, just outside Orlan- do. The building is designed to double in size if expansion is needed in the future. It contains two 25-ton overhead cranes, jig tables, three 400-ft. long forms (two top forms, one bottom), laser projector, custom manufacturing equipment, as well as offices. The producer is purchasing another piece of equipment soon to free up a crane, allowing more pours per day, notes Dan- iel (Dan) J. Finfrock, executive vice president and chief manu- facturing officer, Finfrock Industries.
