Windover Construction Delivers â€œEverything But the Guestsâ€ for Beauport Hotel Gloucester Project
BEVERLY, MA Windover Construction, an award-winning construction completed The Beauport Hotel Gloucester in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Acting as a trusted partner from inception to completion, Windover played an integral role in every stage of the 115,000-square-foot hotel's development - delivering nearly everything but the hotel guests. The project followed a design-build approach, led by Windover with architect OLSON LEWIS+ and interior designer Niemitz Design Group.
"We take great pride in developing long-lasting client relationships built on trust, and the owners of the Beauport considered Windover a trusted partner throughout the entire project," said Lee Dellicker, President and CEO of Windover Construction. "While it's a rather untraditional approach for a construction company to oversee a project "˜soup to nuts,' it was important that we made the process as easy as possible."
Advocating for the project through the early conceptual stages and permitting, Windover had a hand in practically every aspect of the hotel's completion such as budget, architecture and interior design, scheduling, and construction - all the way down to the procurement and installation of details such as furniture, fixtures, silverware, linens, and IT (property management and reservation systems). This was an unusual role for a construction management firm, but was made possible by the design-build approach which allowed Windover to act as the single source responsibility for the owner.
"We took extreme comfort in knowing that Windover was overseeing so many of the details of the hotel's creation," Beauport Hotel owner Sheree Zizik said. "We appreciated their willingness to jump in where needed, and wholeheartedly trusted their expertise. They streamlined the process for us and made things run as smoothly as possible, which proved invaluable to us throughout the project."
The Beauport Hotel is a 94-room, four-story boutique hotel overlooking Gloucester Harbor. The building's design pays homage to the classic seaside hotels that once dotted Gloucester's coast at the turn of the 19th century with elegant finishes such as copper roofing details, sophisticated woodworking, gambrel roof, and cedar shingle siding. The hotel also features a ballroom, conference center, restaurant and bar, rooftop pool, and a parking garage.
