PROJECT: DOOR RENOVATION OF THE NEW ORLEANS MARRIOTT 1400 ROOMS
PARTNER: NEW ORLEANS MARRIOTT
- The hotel needed a contractor that was capable of assisting with the specifications, furnishing the material and installing the material
- Storage space for replacement doors was not available on site in New Orleans
- The project would have to be executed while the hotel was occupied
- The Hotel maintains a 90 to 100 percent occupancy rate throughout the year
Brabner and Hollon Inc. is a licensed contractor in the State of Louisiana. With our ability to determine and meet specifications, we could act as architect, as well. Brabner & Hollon Inc. has contracted to install doors for over 20 years – we had a crew of 8 ready to go. We arranged storage of the new doors and disposal of the old doors with a company in Kenner, Louisiana. They agreed to bring one truckload of new doors to the hotel each morning and at the same time pick-up the old doors. The crew stayed in the hotel for 5 weeks. We worked in conjunction with the hotel security staff, one floor at a time. The project was completed on time with a minimum of inconvenience experienced by the hotel guests.
In a tough economy it is important to do business with a company that has been around the block a few times. Our recent capital expansion at Brabner & Hollon, Inc. shows our commitment to the future and highlights the stable foundation of a 55-year-old-company that has weathered previous challenges.
Completed this past May, Brabner & Hollon increased its office and warehousing space by 6,000 square feet to store doors, frames, hardware and specialties for our clients. As the region’s largest full service distributor, we will not compromise the services, such as installation and warehousing, our customers know and expect.
