Renovation of 30,000 SF of offices on the 3rd floor of this existing, functioning and fully operating Kellogg Conference Center Hotel (KCC) into 29 hotel rooms at Gallaudet University. The schedule was based upon getting rooms open and ready in preparation for a fully scheduled spring season of events where the Hotel Operator is counting on the additional revenue from these 29 rooms. The biggest challenge that presented itself on this Project was working around the KCC events schedule and Hotel occupancy while still progressing the construction schedule. Adding 29 bathrooms to the floor meant plenty of core drilling which couldn’t be done in the evening due to Hotel guests, above, and couldn’t be done in the day due to Conference Center Events, below. The project team was able to schedule and complete over 180 core drills, while balancing the Client’s needs with the progress of the job.
“I cannot speak more highly of my experience working with the TEEL team. My experience with TEEL was seamless, cooperative, accommodating and completely in control. They came in on time and on budget. A rare situation these days.” – Carlo Alessi, CEO, Robelan (Owner’s Rep)
