Construction Progressing at New FINFROCK Concrete Manufacturing Facility in Belle Grade with Construction Milestone
Concrete pieces used to create the build facility were made by employees who will work there
Completion set for later this summer
The walls are rising at the new FINFROCK 140,000-sq.-ft. precast concrete manufacturing facility in Belle Glade that will bring 200 jobs to the area and more than $242 million in economic stimulus.
After many months of preparations, including the pouring of concrete pieces for the building, FINFROCK, the only vertically integrated design-builder and manufacturer of its kind in the industry, reached a major milestone as it begins vertically erecting the Belle Glade facility. In typical FINFROCK fashion, the pieces will come together like a giant Lego project in record time, with completion expected later this summer.
“This is an exciting milestone for FINFROCK because this new facility will help us to better serve clients in southeast and southwest Florida,” said CEO Allen Finfrock during a sneak peek of the progress for community leaders. “The best part of this project is that the employees that have joined us since we came into the Glades community have been working on making the pieces to build the building where they will build their careers with FINFROCK.”
FINFROCK designs all of its buildings out of resilient prestressed/precast concrete because it is aesthetically versatile, cost-effective, low maintenance and designed to last. As part of the first phase of the Belle Glade project, FINFROCK will construct two bays that are 120 feet wide and span 800 feet long. The project includes the use of 120-foot-wide “double T’s,” arguably the largest ever manufactured in Florida.
“As with all of our buldings, they are built to last,” added Finfrock “We are excited to be here, grow our business and provide more new career opportunities for residents as the new facility gets up and running.”
The new facility sits on the site of the former Glades Correctional Institution.
