Situated in the heart of downtown Austin, across the street from the convention center, the White Lodging hotel features over 600 guestrooms, 62,000 square feet of meeting space, three levels of below grade parking, and elevated dining concepts unlike anywhere else in the city. Additionally, the hotel includes a 7th floor rooftop deck with a pool, bar, a contemporary modern American restaurant, and a grab-and-go market.
With the project scheduled to conclude in the summer of 2020, The Porter Co.’s project management team has found itself ahead of schedule. We attribute our success to planning for efficiency. One of our biggest successes has been stocking guestroom floors. We subcontracted out delivery and setting of the VFCUs and shower pans. This allowed us to ship everything to our subcontractor and dial in the delivery for after-hours which put us on a once per week delivery per floor which made the project smoother.
Additionally, we sent guestroom plumbing fixtures to our shop to be unpacked, preassembled, and staged on carts by floor. This ensured that we had everything we needed prior to installation on each floor and eliminated most of the packaging waste that otherwise would’ve needed to be removed by buck hoist.
