As a Project Manager for Beacon Bay, Benjamin is presently managing a $20M renovation at The Reach, Key West- a Waldorf Astoria conversion to a Curio Collection by Hilton. The project consists of renovating 150 guestrooms, public spaces, new restaurant, FL&S and ADA facility upgrades, with façade and structural repairs. As this project nears completion, Benjamin is involved in the design and development of another Waldorf Astoria renovation project at the Casa Marina, Key West.
Benjamin’s past experience with Beacon Bay includes the $150M new-construction project for Marriott Vacations Worldwide at the Marriott’s Crystal Shores on Marco Island. Benjamin’s full-time presence onsite involved daily responsibilities such as monitoring and reporting on overall project performance as it relates to delivering on strict design requirements and specifications, as well as communicating activities to the resort and ownership team. Benjamin has experience with several other large hotel and resort projects, including the 777-room conversion of the Nickelodeon Resort in Orlando to the now Holiday Inn Resort Suites and Waterpark. Beyond projects in the greater Orlando area, Benjamin has taken the lead on several due diligence projects across the country for Beacon Bay, where he was responsible for the coordination and execution of detailed site-reviews, inspections and overall property condition assessments for owners.
Benjamin’s love for construction was discovered well before graduating from the University of Central Florida. Before college, Benjamin spent time in the field working under a General Contractor building multi-use storage facilities and other rigid frame buildings. In his down time, Benjamin can be found running, cycling or swimming, as he trains for the next triathlon. He can also be found perusing his hobby in aviation, where he recently earned his license as a private pilot.
