Courtyard Lincroft Red Bank in NJ

Interior and Exterior Hotel Renovation During COVID-19 Pandemic

 

“It’s been a long process to get to this stage of construction because of so many circumstances around Covid-19 that were out of our control. But the final product up to this point looks spectacular, and the hotel owner is ecstatic.”

Bill Bonolis, Project Manager

Case Study

The Courtyard by Marriott is located in Red Bank, NJ and situated near the PNC Bank Arts Center, Jersey Shore Premium Outlets, Asbury Park Boardwalk and Monmouth Mall. The property contains 146 Rooms with a fitness center, boardroom two meeting rooms, an on-site restaurant called The Bistro, and a Starbucks. Triple Crown Construction was hired to perform exterior and interior renovations based on the hotel’s property improvement plan, which included infilling an indoor pool and converting it to a meeting room. Partner-Grade performance was evident at every stage, allowing us to complete the interior renovation prior to the Covid-19 shutdown. We are currently working to complete the exterior renovation.

The Partner-Grade Experience

Every project has unexpected challenges, and each one was handled with Partner-Grade Care to exceed client expectations.

Challenge

The hotel owner asked TCC to manage the construction permitting process, which took much longer than expected because of county submission stipulations and additional drawings that needed to be delivered, as well as a lengthy review process. These challenges delayed the start of the interior construction by three weeks and the exterior by 2.5 months.

Solutions
  • TCC acted with Partner Grade care by continuing to maintain open communication with the owner, architects, the county building department, and the permit expeditor. TCC monitored each step of the permitting process to keep things moving forward until the permits were received.

Challenge

The architect and owner did not complete an exploratory of existing soil conditions around the hotel before construction began. When TCC removed the front porte cochere, they discovered the soil wasn’t up to par. The city engineer would not allow them to the fill holes until they deepened them and increased the footer size to meet load capacity. Storm water management and draining issues near footers were also discovered.

Solutions
  • TCC worked with a 3rd party surveying group who provided recommendations for how to address each of those challenges. They met with ownership and the architect to determine new footer sizes to carry the load. Once all the new stipulations were decided, TCC moved forward with the porte cochere replacement.

Challenge

At the beginning of 2020, Covid-19 pandemic regulations within NJ were created which designated TCC as a “non-essential” business, forcing them to halt construction renovation for 60 days. When restrictions within NJ were lifted, TCC had to follow additional regulation guidelines by adding a station for temperature checks, having construction workers sign-in, and putting in hand sanitizing stations and hand washing stations. They also had to designate a public restroom to be used by only construction workers.

Solutions
  • The TCC Project Superintendent modified everything on site and filled out daily logs to document all CDC regulations in order to keep the project site open. TCC worked to keep costs down while still maintaining Partner Grade care.
