Marriott PIP Renovation with Partner-Grade Solutions

 

“Based on our outstanding performance from start to finish during the project, the owner asked us to bid on another property he owned in North Carolina.”

Bill Bonolis, TCC Project Manager

Case Study

The Fairfield by Marriott is located in Archdale, NC off Interstate 85 in the High Point area which is sometimes referred to as the “Home Furnishings Capital of the World.” Marriott, as with most national hotels, maintains the quality of their properties through property improvement plans (PIP) which are implemented every five to ten years. Triple Crown Construction was the General Contractor that was hired to complete an interior renovation based on Marriott’s latest PIP specifications.

By the numbers:

74 Guest Rooms

4 Public Spaces including:

1 Pool

1 Meeting Room

1 Laundry Room

1 Back Office Area

The Partner-Grade Experience

Every project has unexpected challenges, and each one was handled with Partner-Grade expertise, experience and dedication with the goal of exceeding client expectations.

Challenge

The hotel didn’t have an architect fully engaged to access the current property design documents TCC needed to understand the scope of work. The only documentation available was the “as-built” drawings from 2004, which were obviously out of date.

Solutions
  • TCC used the 2004 drawings and walked through the hotel to gain a visual perspective of the design adjustments based on the original designs. From there they utilized the PIP requirements and compared it with Marriott’s LOBO (global design requirements) to ensure the work would align to Marriott’s hotel renovation specifications in order to create a baseline scope of work.

Challenge

During a city inspection of the renovation work, the Electrical Building Inspector noticed previous work done in the hotel that was not up to code. This was outside TCC’s scope of work and had to be addressed before the hotel renovation would pass the inspection.

Solutions
  • TCC spoke with the owner of the hotel to determine options for how to proceed. The hotel owner chose to have it addressed internally by his hotel building engineer who brought it up to code to pass the city inspection.

Challenge

TCC’s scope of work was limited to the interior of the hotel. At the same time they were doing internal renovations, the owner was also having exterior work done by another company. When the external contractor began renovations on the porte-cochere, the front entrance of the hotel had to be closed, which impacted guest traffic patterns within the hotel.

Solutions
  • TCC put up signs directing guests to the rear entrance of the hotel, and helped guests locate the lobby as needed. As they completed renovation work and moved to other sections on the ground floor, they moved signage around to re-direct guests to the side entrance. Because of the holiday season, there were limited guests in the hotel which made it easier to monitor guest traffic to ensure a good hotel experience for everyone.
