“I recently worked with Arctic for the first time on a very intense project called the Vintage Plaza hotel. Our owner was requiring a very aggressive project schedule allowing for only 9 weeks to complete the renovation. Arctic instantly became a project partner and was eager to solve construction conflicts rapidly identified in the field.”
Helping to create new and preserve existing portland landmarks
We know the challenges of working in operating facilities and have learned to mitigate the impacts to their operation.
SIMULARITIES BETWEEN HOSPITALITY/HOTEL AND MULTI-FAMILY PROJECTS
There are big differences too! Hospitality projects exist to serve the guest on-the-go! The “back of house”….the support facilities, kitchens, laundry, staff rooms and ballrooms create levels of mechanical complexity and ruggedness as well as luxurious finish details seldom found in other facilities.
Arctic has in-house experience with Hotel systems and finish and has provided our HVAC installation or retrofit services for everything from general indoor comfort systems, kitchen and servery systems, smoke and atrium exhaust systems, type 1 kitchen exhaust, elevator and stairwell pressurization and guest room HVAC to entire hotel “dry side” mechanical construction or remodel.
Arctic has performed every conceivable type of hotel/hospitality project from small boutique and expansive new facilities, to historic renovations. We also perform small projects and mechanical maintenance for a number of Portland hotels. We know the challenges of working in operating facilities and have learned how to mitigate the impacts to their operation.
HOSPITALITY FACILITIES CAN BE DEMANDING - THEY MUST BALANCE THE NEEDS OF THE GUESTS, STAFF, OWNER, AND COMMUNITY
