The interior renovation took place on nine floors of the occupied hotel and included new finishes in rooms and corridors as well as upgrades to the existing lobby, reception desk and ballrooms.
During construction, the owner did not want windows removed to bring material to the upper floors, so McCownGordon worked with our trade partners to successfully devise a hoisting system to move shower panels to the upper floors through a small opening in the stairwell. Due to the pandemic, the McCownGordon team was faced with procurement issues and additional safety precautions.
When occupancy levels were down to almost zero, McCownGordon quickly rephased the construction schedule to be complete four months earlier than originally planned, resulting in a $150,000 saving for the client. The owner added $35,000 of work to the project scope, which was originally planned to be phase two of the renovation, and our team was able to complete the extra scope of work during the original timeline.
