2014 Infuencer: Robert Finfrock

The new 34,000-square-foot facility was built 40 feet high to accommodate laser projection technology that allows Finfrock to produce precast panels in record time, and with exceptional accuracy.

A high-tech production line, added in 2012, includes new tilt tables, gantry and bridge cranes, and a state-of-the-art computer aided manufacturing (CAM) system.

PieceTracker software uses unique ID numbers to provide real-time information about each precast element, from design through production, inspection, storage, shipping, delivery, and jobsite placement.

Finfrock constructed a new, 882-stall parking garage at the Healthcare Corporate Office in Altamonte Springs, Fla. The design-build precaster completes an average of 8-12 parking structures every year.

Every Finfrock project begins with StructureWorks 3D modeling software, which creates three-dimensional models of precast/prestressed structures and allows transparent and immediate coordination among the entire project team.

Robert Finfrock’s four children have joined him in running the family business, which has grown from producing precast concrete in 1945 to providing a full range of design-build services in precast construction. From left to right are Robert Finfrock and his children, Dan, Linda, Allen, and Bill.

Finfrock uses laser projection technology, guided by StructureWorks 3D modeling software, to quickly and precisely place imbeds, utilities, and openings in precast concrete panels.

Under a public private partnership, FINFROCK designed and built the NorthView Student Apartments in Oviedo, Fla., which houses 600 and has a 690-car attached parking structure. With a guaranteed price, the owner was able to validate the pro forma, secure financing, and complete construction within 12 months.

Finfrock architects and engineers designed the Surf Style mixed use structure in Clearwater, Fla., with a 175,300-square-foot footprint that includes 35,000 square feet of retail space (with a 1500-square-foot surfing simulator), 6800-square-foot restaurant, and five-story parking garage.

While designing Tarpon Point Marina Village Parking Garage, Finfrock was asked to devise solutions that met requirements for retail space and column-free parking. Finfrock served as architect of record, structural engineer, design-build contractor, and parking consultant for the five-story, 515-stall structure.
