Hotel Remodel and Reconstruction
Holiday Inn Lake Buena Vista, Florida

The Holiday Inn Lake Buena Vista remodeling and reconstruction project included the complete demolition of all interiors of this 323-room, 13-story hotel and an addition to the common facilities. This work was necessary as a result of damage sustained during the hurricanes of 2004 and 2005.

Westin Laguna Mar
Design Documents Peer Review
Westin Laguna Mar Ocean Resort

The Westin Laguna Mar Ocean Resort is a multibuilding, multiphase interval ownership project. Previously, the site had a hotel that was severely damaged by a hurricane. The complex consists of 8-story buildings and a significant water feature as part of the project. A historic element on the site also had to be preserved.

ZHA prepared a series of document coordination and constructability reviews as the design documents were completed. ZHA also performed an analysis of the initial project schedule and related constructability issues. The designer was located in South America and the documents were prepared in Spanish. The drawings were released over time in a variety of packages making coordination a key part of the analysis.
