Marriott Convention Center

Phased construction brings complete transformation.

DonahueFavret Contractors was selected to perform Preconstruction and Construction services for the complete renovation of the Marriott Hotel on Convention Center Boulevard. DonahueFavret Contractors was brought on board six months prior to construction start to complete the model room and also perform exploratory work throughout the guestrooms and public spaces. The project was completed utilizing phased construction. For the guestrooms, we worked on a four week turn per floor. The public spaces were done through four different phases and turnovers. The project encountered numerous unforeseen challenges such as sheetrock replacement and repair, fancoil unit replacement and non-functioning valves to shut off water at floor levels. These issues were all navigated and worked through with hotel ownership and our subcontractors in order to keep the project moving on schedule.

The project consists of a full renovation of all 331 guestrooms. It includes changing tubs to showers and replacing all finishes and flooring throughout. Our team also handled all liquidation, warehousing, and installation of FFE.

The public spaces were a complete renovation including new Bar and M Club, HVAC and lighting controls as well as all new finishes throughout the lobby, entry, ballrooms, meeting rooms and bathrooms.
