Hyatt Place Hotel – King of Prussia, PA
This project was the first time Hyatt Place did anything along the lines of a retrofit; prior to this all Hyatt Place hotels had been new constructions. Weaver was tasked with completely gutting and rebuilding the inside of an existing six-story structure, allow for continued hotel operations while this was being done and meet a five-month deadline for completion – about half the time a project this size would normally take. To meet the schedule, Weaver used four eight-man labor crews to work on two floors at a time from the top down, with up to 85 total workers in the field daily. Thanks to the success of this project, Hyatt Place now has prototype plans and specifications for future renovation projects.
