Miami, FL, August 11, 2010 – Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating segment of Interval Leisure Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: IILG), has formed an alliance with full-service builder FARROW Commercial Construction. Through its Interval Affiliate Advantages program, member resorts can tap into the Santa Rosa, California-based firm’s extensive experience handling complex refurbishment projects, as well as its expertise in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance.
“FARROW has worked with vacation ownership properties for years and is an extremely valuable resource for developers, homeowners’ associations, and management companies undertaking the renovation or upgrades necessary to conform with ADA regulations,” said David Gilbert, Interval’s executive vice president of resort sales and marketing. “Participating resorts also have a unique opportunity to leverage the services of an acknowledged expert for new construction or retrofitting real estate assets to a shared ownership offering — with significant cost savings.”
Some of the exclusive benefits available through the Interval Affiliate Advantages program include a complimentary on-site visit and construction walk-through upon budget acceptance, cost reductions on permit generation, no-charge ADA compliance sign-off and written report, and annual compliance update and training.
“Our firm has on-the-ground expertise at each phase of the refurbishment and compliance processes — from site evaluation to quality control — and we’re very familiar with the fine details that are often overlooked,” said John C. Farrow, owner and president of FARROW. “We’re looking forward to guiding Interval affiliates through the process of revitalizing their properties as cost effectively as possible.”
This alliance is the newest benefit in Interval’s Affiliate Advantages program, a collection of value-driven products that provide member resorts with preferential access to services, discounted rates — or a combination of both, to enhance marketing and sales efforts and to improve operational efficiencies.
