University Centre Hotel & Parking Garage


Gainesville, FL

Scope of Work

Complete demolition of a 12-story hotel and 4-story parking garage in Gainesville, FL to make way for a new cancer hospital. The unique construction of the hotel along with its close proximity to Archer Road and location between an existing nursing home and Shands Hospital made for a complex demolition project. Our Ultra-High Excavator was used to demolish the parking garage and our 100-ton Manitowoc Crane was used to demolished the hotel. Dust control and safe, careful demolition of both structures were of great concern to the owner and GC of this project. A Dust Boss was used for dust suppression as working heights exceeded 110’.
