Inn & Spa at Rocky Pond Project to Leverage GenCap’s Strong Hospitality Talent and Integrated Project Delivery Services as Growing Firm Continues to Expand

Kirkland, Wash., October 18, 2021 – GenCap Construction Corp., a rapidly-growing Puget Sound-based commercial contracting and construction management firm, today announced it will soon begin work on its newest project in Washington state. 

Located along the shoreline of the Columbia River in Orondo, Wash., the new Inn & Spa at Rocky Pond will feature approximately 115,000 sq. ft. of amenities including a two-story hotel, casita guest cottage rooms, spa and wellness center, conference center, fine dining and multiple amenities including infiniti pools, water features, tasting rooms and a waterfront activities center. 

“At GenCap we’re driven to build high-quality venues and destinations that exceed our client’s expectations—and we’re honored to be given the opportunity to leverage our robust hospitality and Central Washington development experience to deliver this remarkable new project,” said GenCap Construction Corp. President Rob Warnaca. 

“The GenCap team impressed the Rocky Pond leadership and was chosen because of their extensive work with other private developers, relevant experience and customer-first approach,” added Dan Chandler, Senior Vice President & Principal at OAC Services. 

“As a highly regarded construction management firm, OAC has an incredible team of integrated project delivery experts on deck. We’re excited to be joining together with them on this project and look forward to working together on this unique and extraordinary new development,” continued Warnaca. 

Construction on the new project will begin in Summer 2022, with completion anticipated in Spring 2024. Current project team members include SKB Architects, GCH Landscape Architects, Pacific Engineering (Civil Engineer), Columbia Hospitality Group (Operator) and OAC Services (Owner’s Representative). 

As the construction start nears, GenCap will expand its project team to include several new construction management, superintendent and craft labor role positions. GenCap also plans to open a new satellite office in the Wenatchee Valley area to further support the company’s growth in Central Washington and to commit a dedicated and local business presence for the Inn & Spa at Rocky Pond project and to the region’s subcontractors and trades.
