CHALLENGE

W.G. Yates Construction approached Valcourt to take a look at a fast-track project for post-construction modification of two 12-story high-rise buildings at The Palms of Destin Resort and Conference Center. The twin-tower luxury condominium in Florida’s panhandle required sealant and coatings. In addition, both Yates and the homeowners association needed the project completed before the end of May when the summer condominium rental season would begin.

SOLUTION

Yates and Valcourt worked together on previous projects which helped streamline the work process for The Palms. A scope of work and project schedule was finalized with the client and, within a few days, Valcourt’s operations team was onsite with two 9-man crews on each building. Each team utilized 10 2-man cages and two swing stages to simultaneously complete the work on 22 drops per building.

To keep the project on schedule, materials supplier Coastal Construction Products was ready to perform tests and make timely deliveries to ensure that the rigorous schedule was met. Thanks to Valcourt’s relationship with the client, engineers, and suppliers, they were able to take on this important fast-track project without skipping a beat. In fact, the project was completed one week earlier than planned.
