In mid-2002, Francisco was contracted to as the Marina Project Manager of Cap Cana, a 6,200-acre luxury project at the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic. He was later hired by Sinercon, the construction arm of Cap Cana, to manage the construction of Marina Cap Cana, an upscale marina capable of berthing 600 vessels up to 200 feet in length.
Francisco managed the excavation of 800,000 cubic meters of rock to create the Marina Cap Cana inland basin phase 1. The trenching, blasting and upland excavation were completed using construction equipment financed by Export-Import Bank of the USA. The crushed material obtained from the excavation was used for the construction of the Cap Cana road system. The combined effect of the marina excavation and the road construction played an integral part in the successful sales of the different Cap Cana real estate products during the coming years.
