With 58-acres of lush landscaping, tranquil beaches, lavish pools and breathtaking waterslides, Aquatica, SeaWorld's Waterpark in Orlando offers guests a welcome retreat from the Florida heat.
As one of the most visited waterparks in North America, the park includes 36 water slides, two lazy river rides and two side-by-side wave pools, as well as an 88,000 square foot beach area bordering the wave pools with a VIP peninsula.
We were challenged to work collaboratively alongside four other general contractors. Our scope of work included site work, electrical, landscaping, concrete for a 248,000-gallon dolphin pool, foundations for the slides, themed construction of three restaurants, three retail stores, restrooms and locker rooms, and the maintenance, administrative and mechanical support buildings. The team also created and maintained the master construction schedule for the five general contractors on the project. During construction, the teams met weekly to discuss task coordination, RFIs, submittals, changes and the schedule. The team worked collaboratively to resequence tasks as needed in order to keep work progressing as planned.
By taking accountability for the master project schedule and coordinating effectively between teams, we delivered a first-class waterpark, which exceeded the client’s goal for opening-year attendance in just six months.
