Engineered Customized Portable Structures
This engineered customized portable structure was designed and fabricated to meet many needs. The engineered portable structure had to look like a white stucco house in the Greek Islands, it had to have the structural integrity portability requires, and the electrical systems a commercial kitchen requires. Entech Innovative was up for the challenge and ultimately reengineered the project to save time, money, and improve the look and durability of the portable structure offering mobile-cuisine.
Our client came to Entech with drawings of what they wanted. Originally, the engineered portable structure was to be constructed in two pieces and attached together at the location. However, the original design had an obvious seam line and the drawings indicated an inefficient construction that would be costly. Since the final dimensions were not too large to travel on a flatbed truck, the engineers at Entech redesigned the portable structure to be one piece.
The final portable structure offered retractable wheels, aluminum frame construction, commercial grade electrical, and a seamless look. In addition, the new design required less maintenance and site repairs.…read more
Entech can build anything. An opportunity to do something different came with the development of our relationship with SeaSpace, specialists in satellite systems. To work on parabolic reflectors may have been a change of pace, but nothing we could not handle.
A parabolic reflector must be fabricated to precise specifications. The high precision molds we made were laser measured to less than .001 inch of variance. The reflectors, made of epoxy resin carbon fiber composite were vacuum bagged for matrix consolidation to maximize the strength and weight of the finished components.
Matrix consolidation is a process whereby volatiles produced during processing are managed to prevent them accumulating in pockets and creating voids in the material. This step is critical in the production of high precision composite material components.
Reflectors must be extremely precise to properly integrate with sophisticated stations. These parabolic reflectors are programmed to communicate on a specific Ka + X band frequency combination with geosynchronous satellites.…read more
Grand Cypress Pool Expansion
The expansion of the Grand Cypress pool area was distinguished by the ability of the team at Entech Innovative to install FAST. Entech Innovative had been selected by Hensel Phelps for the job because during the bidding process, Entech’s proposal offered the shortest time frame for fabrication and installation. Since the renovations were taking place in an existing hotel while guests would be staying there and using the pool, time was of the essence.
The team at Entech teamed with ProSlide to design and build an exceptional water slide experience. A guest climes the stairs to the gazebo on top of a mountain of rocks with a beautiful 360 view and then enters the long twisting water slide to land in the pool below.
The collaborative effort resulted in the completion of the job faster than any competitor could have, with a minimum of inconvenience to guests, and a wonderful addition to the pool area.read more

Art of Animation – Metal Flats
672 aluminum and stainless steel flats were cut individually, scenic hand painted and installed to decorate the three buildings in The Little Mermaid area of the Art of Animation Resort. The shapes ranged from bubbles, to waves, to eels, to seahorses, to angel fish, to dolphins 22’ long. The variety and placement of the flats makes the area and each building unique.
For the installation of the metal flats, the Entech Innovative Team developed an innovative process to make installation go smoothly. Since there are 672 metal flats, each with an average of 7 holes, 4704 holes had to be drilled. In addition, each hole had to be in a precise location calculated by engineering to line up with its specific mounting point. To expedite and simplify the process in the field, the engineers sent the coordinates for each hole location a Kindle Fire used by the install team in the field.…read more

The Princess Gazebo
The beautiful little pavilion is tucked away in a special place where a little girl can meet a princess. Yet, to make that possible required more than one might think at first glance. This delicate gazebo required engineering, site preparation, permitting, fabrication, installation and customer approval in a tight location and time frame.
That things went smoothly would be normal. That the gazebo is interesting and unique is natural. You might notice that the gazebo has the customary octagonal shape But then you might realize there are only six posts rather than the customary eight. And then again, you might see that the posts are positioned in the middle of each side as opposed to the corner. All these modifications were made t the request of the customer.
In custom work you get what will meet your needs. And Entech Innovative knows all the other stuff to make that happen.…read more
Margaritaville’s Spinning Hurricane
The Entech team engineered and fabricated the massive icon for the center bar at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville in Myrtle Beach. Designed by and furnished under the direction of The McBride Co., the restaurant features a giant spinning hurricane with a large tequila bottle at its core for us to fabricate. The tequila bottle descends out of the rotating hurricane clouds to dispense gallons of “tequila” into a huge blender. The effect is topped-off with misty smoke, confetti and shark fins that pop out of the bands of the hurricane.
Size, engineering, specialty metals, fiberglass, controls systems, scenic paint, this iconic feature has it all and all of it was completed in just 68 days! We were up to the challenge and it was a lot of fun to design and build!…read more
