Henderson Beach Resort
The Henderson Beach Resort is a luxury beach resort in Destin, Florida. It sits adjacent to a 200-acre nature preserve on the sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico.
OWN, Inc. worked closely with local firm, Prescott Architects, on the resort’s expansion including a total of four 3- and 5-story structures with parking beneath and around.
These new buildings would house numerous 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom vacation rentals ranging in size from 1,000 to 1,600 square feet, and would greatly expand the guest capacity of the resort beyond the existing Henderson Hotel.
OWN provided structural engineering on the project, while also the oversight of construction inspections throughout the build.
During construction, OWN noted some issues with concrete spalling that affected nearly half of the buildings. The team worked with the contractor to repair the affected columns to avoid pulling everything – which would have come with great expense to the contractor, and a hit to the project’s timeline.
Over the project’s life, OWN went beyond by staying on top of the details throughout the entire structural design process. The team’s responsiveness during the construction phase helped the client finish ahead of schedule and on budget.
