Our experience in the hospitality industry stretches back over 15 years and over many other types of commercial and residential construction. Our company is currently involved with several Hilton projects in current stages of development and construction.

We have worked with most of the major hotel franchises including Hilton, Marriott, Intercontinental Hotels Group, Best Western, and Choice Hotels. We have completed Property Improvement Plans (PIPs) for all these franchises, and we have experience in the franchise requirements of the major brands. We have worked hard to build a reputation for good quality construction. Our experience in these areas can help developers maximize their site utilization, plan for future expansion and development, with an eye toward keeping overall project costs in check. We pride ourselves in keeping up with trends in new construction methods and using new technology to find ways to construct more efficiently and get projects done more cost effectively. Our vendors don’t cut corners and provide good quality products and competitive prices. Some of our vendors have worked with us for over 20 years. Please see our current work in progress or contact us at the link on the upper menu. Our website will be updated constantly over the next few months showing our current work and also to see ideas and tips on how our expertise and knowledge can work for you.
