ORLANDO, Florida – On October 26, Associated Builders and Contractors of Central Florida Chapter (ABC) recognized Austin Commercial for the Old Port Royale at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort project at the Excellence in Construction Awards (EIC), which showcased projects built by ABC of Central Florida members that were rigorously judged on an array of criteria. This event recognizes outstanding projects in the commercial and industrial construction industry.
Austin Commercial had the opportunity to enter the annual competition and was judged on safety, quality, ingenuity, and workmanship. The project was evaluated by local owners, architects, and engineers on safety, execution of design, craftsmanship, attention to detail, installation, and other considerations. The company was awarded the Eagle Award in the category of Commercial construction.
The renovation of 36,000 SF of Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort included multiple projects and buildings, each with detailed specialty finishes and theming. The main commercial building was renovated with a new resort entrance, lobby and check-in and a new kitchen and quick service restaurant. In front of the property three new guest bus shelters were added. Other new additions included a new merchandise store, an indoor/outdoor covered patio for dining and a new porte-cochere for buses and shuttles. Additionally a new table service restaurant, bar and the Banana Cabana overlooking the resort’s pool and boardwalk that runs along the lake’s edge was completed.
