By employing meticulous planning, cutting-edge materials, and incorporating lavish finishing touches, the Turner team successfully executed the modernization of the Four Seasons Hotel on an accelerated timeline, all the while maintaining the hotel's opulent ambiance and uninterrupted operations. With the challenging mandate of completing the project within a mere four months, aligning with the Austin City Limits Music Festival, the team ensured the hotel could continue to operate at maximum capacity during construction, hosting a wide array of events including corporate gatherings, government meetings, weddings, and accommodating guests.
The project involved the demolition and build-back of the lobby, bar, restaurant and restrooms, and an expansion of the outdoor patio into a two-level space overlooking Lady Bird Lake. Turner leveraged local market relationships, national vendor connections and modern technology to manage various design options and to ultimately provide a guaranteed maximum price for the client. To keep the hotel fully functional, the team phased the lobby renovation and incorporated a temporary wall innovation to streamline the process.
The temporary walls featured a wipeable, prefinished face that produced a high-end look, and guests were unaware that these were temporary walls. The walls included trim that snapped on to conceal joints and corners, allowing for quick installation. Because wall installation took place overnight, work had to be done in almost complete silence. The walls included double layers of drywall and were lined with full insulation. The team also had to give careful attention to luxury finishes and incorporate Texas limestone flooring, rare wood from around the world, intricate metal work and hand-painted wall coverings.
The Four Seasons Hotel Austin Modernization project has won a 2019 Best Projects Award from Engineering News-Record (ENR) in the Interior/Tenant Improvement category in the Texas/Louisiana region. An ENR Best Projects Award is considered one of commercial construction’s most prestigious and coveted honors, selected by juries of prominent and experienced industry professionals, and Turner is honored to be a recipient.
