Universal Archway & Hardscape


Demolition of existing arch and globe construct a new and iconic entrance for Universal Studios Florida. This included the massive Universal globe, 65′ archway, the waterway hardscape between the two parks, as well as hotel access walkway connected to Universal Studios. 


The main ticket office and guest travel path was just outside the jobsite fence without disruption to the guest experience. Logistics were challenging as access was shared through our jobsite with several other contractors. New mechanical, electrical and plumbing were added. Multiple situations required the expertise of our team; aerial delivery by helicopter to place specialized xenon lights on the top of the arch; unique engineering installed to create the misting surrounding the globe; custom-made, sand-cast, decorative railing procured and installed for over 1000 FT from the Universal Studios bridge to the Islands of Adventure bridge.
