Layton Construction recently completed the vertical expansion of a 25,000-square-foot second floor ballroom to the existing first floor ballroom at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Layton was the general contractor for the project, which broke ground in June 2010. Work for the project included the construction of five ballroom spaces, pre-function areas, a support kitchen and separate Lakeside Terrace with mountain and golf course views. The integration of new mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) installations into existing MEP systems, matching new finishes to the existing resort finishes and upgrading finishes such as a copper-wrapped fireplace, backlit onyx panels and polished travertine plinths complete the project.
The work was sequenced to allow the resort to remain operational during the construction period. Layton coordinated with subcontractors, the resort staff and the owner's design firms to drive the project toward completion in only seven months.
Located in the popular Kierland district in Scottsdale, the AAA Four Diamond Resort was designed to celebrate Arizona's rich history and diverse culture and features accommodations that include a full-service spa, championship golf, award-winning dining and upscale shopping. Additionally, the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa provides all of the necessary services to hold a productive meeting or event, with wireless and high-speed Internet found throughout the resort, a convenient business center and other amenities that offer guests the ultimate in comfort.
