endless summer resort
HOTEL AND PARKING GARAGE
A beach inspired staycation
Designed to be a fun, family-oriented value hotel, the feeling of the resort is relaxed and comfortable, with a cool surf vibe woven throughout the property.
A sister hotel, Dockside Inn and Suites, was built by FINFROCK and also opened in Summer 2020 to complete the Endless Summer Resort.
Step into the surf lifestyle at Universal’s largest resort hotel
Universal Resorts opened the doors to its Surfside Hotel at the Endless Summer Resort on June 27, 2019 — just 15 months after groundbreaking — as the fastest and most efficient hotel construction project the company has ever completed. FINFROCK acted as the architect of record, structural engineer of record, precast concrete manufacturer, and general contractor, utilizing the DualDeck® Building System to deliver a total precast/prestressed concrete solution.
The two properties of the Endless Summer Resort will house a total of 2,800 rooms — Surfside with 750 and Dockside with 2,050 — and be located at the intersection of Universal Blvd. and International Drive on the property that was formerly home to the Wet ‘n Wild water park.
FINFROCK also provided much of the infrastructure throughout the resort, including all elevators and circulation cores, the central chilled-water plant, the parking garage, and the scope associated with high-rise specific code aspects.
