Initially, the Radisson Resort at the Port in Cape Canaveral, Florida, engaged Sprung to provide them with a temporary location for the hotel’s surf shop. Four years later, when a conventional building was completed to accommodate the retail and tour outlet, management chose to relocate the Sprung structure and reconfigure it for a Radisson hotel banquet facility.
The Sprung structure, which may be heated or cooled as required, assures an air-tight system, thanks to its stressed membrane technology. This membrane technology helps save money by reducing the cost of climate control and, with an option of adding an insulation package, provides comfort while helping reduce energy costs.
The Sprung structure was expanded to become additional meeting space, and The Radisson at the Port now boasts an additional 11,900 square feet of permanent hotel banquet space with 29-foot-high high ceilings, crystal chandeliers and its own service areas and restrooms. Because Sprung’s precision engineered structures meet all permanent building codes, the facility is designed to withstand hurricane wind speeds common in this area.
“We originally purchased the structure to use as a temporary surf shop for three years… We were so impressed with the quality of the structure during the three year period that we decided to not only enlarge the structure, but to make it a permanent part of our 284-room resort in Cape Canaveral. We could not be happier with the quality of our Sprung structure and the way it handled the hurricane conditions in Florida.”
