For nearly two decades the pinnacle of Central Florida construction awards has been The Project of the Year designation from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Central Florida Chapter. To earn this prestigious award, contractors must demonstrate a superior level of performance excellence in meeting or exceeding project quality requirements, design specifications, safety procedures, project team collaboration, overcoming unique obstacles, meeting the project schedule and satisfying the client. For the 2nd time in the past 3 years, WELBRO Building Corporation received this prestigious award at ABC's Excellence in Construction Awards Banquet on October 13, 2007 for their premiere project Rosen Shingle Creek Resort. WELBRO also received the Project of the Year award in 2005 for the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate.
Rosen Shingle Creek is one of the largest full-service convention resorts in Central Florida. The 230-acre resort offers 1,500 guest rooms and suites, and 445,000 square feet of dedicated, state-of-the-art meeting space that includes one of the nation's largest column-free ballrooms at 95,000 sq. ft. The resort offers an array of amenities such as the Spa at Shingle Creek (a full-service, 13,000-square-foot spa with nine treatment rooms), a state-of-the-art Fitness Center, an 18- hole, par 72 (7,228 yard) championship golf course ranked one of the "Top 40 Best New Courses in the U.S." by Golfweek Magazine, four outdoor swimming pools, two lighted tennis courts, basketball, seasonal canoe trips, nature trails, fishing, a sand volleyball court, horseshoe pit and more.To ensure that the facility was constructed on time, on budget and to a high quality standard, WELBRO divided the facility into two teams. The first team handled the construction of the Hotel Tower with the second team constructing the Convention Center and the site work package including the swimming pools, hardscape features, landscape and irrigation. Both teams reported to the senior WELBRO executive in charge of overseeing the construction of the entire resort. Separating the project into two distinct parts allowed each team to concentrate on their particular segment of the work without being overwhelmed by the enormity of the project. The subcontract agreements were crafted to require that each major subcontractor provide separate leadership teams.
