Jacksonville, Florida, is the most populous city in the state. Thriving with university life, port activity, and commercialism, Jacksonville has an increasing need for housing. The Hyatt Road Apartments consist of 290 rental apartments, a pool, a fitness center, two courtyards and a dog spa. The project also provides access to retail amenities, city life, and tropical spots.
The complex is four stories tall and relied on four of County Precast’s Elevator Shafts for simple and timely installation. Precast elevator shafts are safer than conventional materials, both during their installation as well as during their prolonged service life. Precast concrete resists water damage, withstands strong winds, and has fire ratings up to three hours. These benefits add value to a building, along with lower insurance costs.
In addition to safety advantages, precast components also ensure speedy installation. Meeting construction deadlines eliminates additional labor costs and accelerates the growth of a community. Project leaders of the Hyatt Road Apartments noted that precast reduced their construction timeline by weeks.
Jacksonville’s population of nearly one million residents brings vibrant community but also demanding residential needs. County Precast met those needs with durable, easy-to-install, low-maintenance elevator shafts.
