Construction on the $25 million twin-tower Marriott Crystal Shores resort that overlooks the white sandy shores along the Gulf of Mexico in Marco Island, FL, was recently completed.
The concrete contractor used a 120-size excavator to dig footers for both buildings and move earth. The contractor also used a forklift to move building materials from staging areas to the construction site, and compressors with 30- and 60-pound jackhammers to chip out concrete columns. Boom lifts were used to raise building materials to the upper floors. The contractor used scissor lifts for interior finishes. Several 6KW generators were used for power tools.
Neff Rental delivered most of the equipment used by the concrete contractor on the Marriott Crystal Shores tower projects. Because the job site was operating in a confined area, drivers called one hour ahead of the estimated delivery time to prepare the work crews to take delivery of the earthmoving and material handling equipment.
