Located on three miles of fine white sand beachfront property, the luxury five-star, five-diamond Ritz-Carlton, Naples, offers scenic views of the Gulf of Mexico. Residents and tourists alike visit the beach resort for the leisure-filled lifestyle full of shopping, golfing, and fine dining. PCL’s fasttrack renovation of 450 existing guestrooms and four restaurants was completed in just nine short weeks, during a shutdown of the resort.
PCL’s extensive preconstruction planning and coordination with the owner’s team helped set the stage for a successful project. The project team created a three-calendar, multi-shift schedule to accommodate around-the-clock work that was required to complete the scope within the nine-week timeframe. Key procurement items that included overseas stone and tiling, rooftop AHUs, custom millwork, hurricane-rated windows, and custom lighting were targeted early, with all products being purchased and delivered to local warehouses before construction began. Product delivery was carefully and precisely coordinated throughout the duration of construction to meet critical installation dates. PCL’s meticulous dedication to schedule control resulted in the Ritz-Carlton, Naples, opening its doors to guests on time, with luxurious, updated guestrooms and sophisticated contemporary restaurants for patrons to enjoy while taking in stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico.
