Project Scope

Graycor completed a renovation at The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead, a five-diamond hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. The nine-month renovation consisted of 517 guestrooms and suites,  the Club Lounge, and 19 corridoor/elevator lobby areas. All rooms are millwork- intensive, with high-end finishes, fixtures and furniture. Bathrooms received new vanities, sinks, tile. A total of 125 rooms included a luxury bathtub-to-shower upgrade along with 24 room conversions to meet ADA compliance. An- other component of the project was the 3,000-square-foot renovation and expansion of the Club Lounge, which in- cluded new hardwood floors and finishes, as well as the conversion of two adjacent rooms to add to the existing space. The Club Lounge was relocated to another area of the hotel to remain operational during construction. FF&E responsibilities included warehousing, delivery and installation.

Floor to ceiling upgrades in the fi tness center and pool area included structural, mechanical and cosmetic changes.

The hotel remained opened throughout construction, with much of the major work completed near occupied rooms. Coordination with hotel staff was important to ensure public safety, minimize disruption to hotel business and maintain the construction schedule.
