PCL served as the general contractor for the construction of a new valet parking garage at the Ritz-Carlton, Naples beach resort. The new garage is a three-story precast structure with 232 spaces and such architectural elements as a rooftop trellis system and green screen facade. The project included associated site work that adds 54 additional outdoor parking spaces and integrates the garage’s new parking control system with existing hotel operations.
PCL discovered during permitting that rerouting utilities and transformer installation as planned could interrupt resort operations and create unnecessary costs for the client. To maintain the project schedule, PCL implemented a phased permit approach to begin site development, foundations and underground utility installation. In coordination with the electrical subcontractor, PCL provided the design team with a solution that shifted the utility routing and transformer location to a more suitable area. All changes were reviewed and approved by the design team and incorporated into a revised set of drawings for permit approval. PCL’s quick action minimized schedule impacts while eliminating unneccessary costs and operational disruptions for the owner.
