J.T. Wimsatt built the foundations and footings for the coaster’s structural steel frame and five support buildings (launch and maintenance building, restrooms, 100,000 gallon aquarium and viewing area, and two elevator building). JTW poured a total of 4,628 CY of concrete of which 2,074 CY was an Aquatic Mix and 569 CY of it was colored concrete.
“We are delighted to be a part of such a thrilling and exciting project,” John E. Wimsatt III, President of J.T. Wimsatt excitingly stated. J.T. Wimsatt’s project team, consisting of site superintendent Jesse Ortega, project manager’s John Keala, Dan Dobler and Randy Vandervorst, made production swift by being on schedule and under budget all while providing top-notch quality. This was yet another excellent project, for which J.T. Wimsatt is proud to have played a part. We would like to thank our client, the general contractor, CW Driver, for the opportunity to assist them in creating this magnificent coaster.
