RIPA & Associates is excited to be part of another high-visibility project in Tampa, close to I-4 and I-75, north of the Selmon Expressway. iFly will be a unique indoor skydiving facility that is located in a fast growing entertainment and shopping corridor adjacent to Top Golf and Bass Pro Shops. This project entails many challenges including excavating and dewatering a massive thirty foot deep pit which houses the facility’s fan system in the substructure of the building. Key aspects of completing this project are sheet piling and a tremendous amount of logistics in order to maintain the side slopes during construction. iFly’s grand opening by the end of 2016 is in no small part due to RIPA’s ability to deal with Florida’s inclement weather and maintain the client’s strict deadlines for completion.
