Hotel Andra Remodel
This nine-story, 118-room refurbishment focused on the re-installation of all bathrooms and an upgrade of the guest rooms. Plumbing risers were replaced, custom sinks installed and mosaic glass tile in the shower stalls was mud set. Features included wall to wall electric "Smart Mirrors," built in shelving and custom vanities. In addition, the bed/sitting rooms were painted and new lighting and carpeting installed. The project was done sequentially, floor by floor, while the busy downtown hotel remained in full operation. In order to accomplish this effectively, the construction team focused on constant communication and cooperation with the hotel staff. We also worked with hotel owners on green practices during the renovation process by having the carpet reused to soak up petroleum sludge by a local company, Recovery 1. The doors, fixtures, sinks, mirrors and lights were salvaged by the organization Second Use, and all cast iron tubs, copper piping and cardboard was recycled.
