Block 75 Hyatt Dual-Branded Hotel
Block 75 Hyatt Dual-Branded Hotel | Tampa, Florida
The design-build dual-branded Hyatt hotel mixed-use project includes a 17-story, 230-key Hyatt Place hotel, and a 115-room Hyatt House hotel. It will consist of 4,000-sq.-ft. of meeting space, 3,200-sq.-ft. of ground-floor retail space, a rooftop amenity deck with pool, and a 220-space parking garage. Located in downtown Tampa, adjacent to the mayor’s office, this project will attract new business and leisure visitors to the Tampa Bay area.
In addition to self-performing drywall, elevator lobbies, hard lid ceilings, doors, and specialties, DPR self-performed the installation of prefabricated exterior panels. As a result of prefabricating 600 exterior panels, off-site, DPR was able to quickly dry-in and pare off time from the overall schedule. Not only did the prefabricated panels improve schedule, but DPR ensured the highest quality due to their creation in a controlled environment, rather than in the field. This process also allowed for a cleaner and safer installation as it eliminated debris from EIFS and avoided the use of mast climbers. DPR continues to push the boundaries of innovation while delivering quality work to our customers.
