The Bayshore Hotel, being built in Myrtle Beach, includes large glass walls on the first floor allowing any passersby a view of the property’s water park, pool, and ocean beyond.

- Approx. 257,000 ft² (23,875 m²) total, 19 stories
- 2 pours per floor, 6 day cycle per floor
- One foreman, seven laborers – for Shear Walls
- One foreman, three laborers, six carpenters – for Slabs
- EFCO’s E-BEAM and SUPER STUD® system is a lower cost and lower weight alternative to traditional formwork. As a result, smaller cranes can be used and the number of wall ties needed is reduced.
- When the cores and walls are combined with the innovative, lightweight GUIDED RAIL SYSTEM®, Fly and Form was able to roll back the exterior formwork, cycle to the next level, and clean and oil while all the equipment was safely anchored to the building, increasing the level of safety.
- The ADJUST-A-DECK® tables are supported off the columns, in most cases eliminating any need for reshore of the decks.
- Six-day cycle per floor
I will use EFCO again, many times.
