Excellence in Construction Quality Award

Last year, AWCI’s Industry Awards Committee instituted two categories for the Excellence in Construction Quality award, one for AWCI member contractors whose contract for the project is less than $1 million, and the other is for the AWCI member contractors whose contract is more than $1 million. All the nominations this year were in the $1 million-plus category, so there’s only one winner for 2003, and that’s the Gaylord Palms Resort and Spa.

Gaylord Palms Resort and Spa is a Florida-themed destination resort located on 63 acres in Kissimmee, FL. It offers 1,406 guest rooms, numerous restaurants, a variety of entertainment venues and a Canyon Ranch Spa.

Gaylord Palms is designed in an old-Florida theme, reflecting the history, culture and classic architecture of the Sunshine State-all depicted under separate distinct areas under Gaylord’s signature glass-enclosed atrium.

KHS&S Contractors of Orlando, FL, completed more than 230,000 square feet of the resort’s massive nine-story exteriors, more than 48,000 square feet of the Florida themed interiors, and the interior hotel guest room facades, including more than one-half mile of balustrades.

The AWCI contractor’s scope of work for the exteriors included everything except the tile roof, windows and dome ceiling. Specifically, KHS&S erected more than 230,000 square feet of scaffolding, completed the approximate 1.1 million linear feet of metal stud framing and applied more than 450,000 square feet of EIFS, a half-mile of exterior balustrade and numerous GFRC/GFRG forms and foam shapes.

On the interiors, the AWCI contractor completed the facades of hotel rooms that overlook the center atrium as well as the atrium’s themed environments.

The manufacturers that contributed to this job are Dryvit Systems, Inc, Dietrich Industries, Georgia-Pacific Gypsum Corporation, Treadway Industries Inc, Unimast Incorporated and USG.

The AWCI members who supplied materials for the project include R S Elliott & Associates Inc, Kobrin Builders Supply and Treadway Industries Inc.
