Houston, TX, March 25, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Linbeck Group, a Texas-based, technology-driven building construction firm, announces completion of Houston’s first dual-branded hotel, the 300-room Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton. Total cost of the project is $50 million.
Located steps from the George R. Brown Convention Center on Crawford street between Capitol and Rusk streets, each hotel features its own distinct entrance, check-in desk and dining area offering complimentary breakfast, however, the property shares one central elevator system and common lobby and joint amenities under one roof including a fitness center, exterior pool and deck on the fourth floor and ample parking on two levels.
An extended-stay property, Homewood Suites will have 132 suites while Hampton Inn will have 168 rooms.
To deliver the project on schedule, and in time to welcome fans for the 2016 NCAA Final Four tournament in early April, Linbeck utilized a host of applied technologies including Synchro Scheduling Software and BIM 360 to track and document quality assurance and quality control as well as generating the project punchlist. Bluebeam Revu aided in document management and viewing. As is required on all Linbeck projects, field teams used iPads connected to BIM 360 and Bluebeam to stay apprised of latest plan changes.
Linbeck previously worked with the hotel’s developer, American Liberty Hospitality, on its 262-room Embassy Suites Houston-Downtown, which opened in 2010.
“With reservations already on the books for the NCAA Final Four, we knew there was no room for error,” said Nick Massad, president and CEO of American Liberty Hospitality. “Linbeck is a trusted partner that builds to exacting standards, and the result is a beautiful addition to downtown Houston’s hotel collection that will attract a wide variety of travelers.”
Active in hospitality construction, Linbeck is also nearing completion on the comprehensive renovation of the Jesse H. Jones Rotary House International, a full-service hotel operated by Marriott International and dedicated to the needs of patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Construction on the Rotary House is expected to be completed in July 2016.
