The new 80,000 SF, five-story wood-framed Hilton Garden Inn Hotel features 119 guest rooms, a pool, hot tub, fitness center, meeting rooms, offices, and an in-house kitchen, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The new hotel was part of an overall revitalization project on the corner of Middle Road and I-74 in Bettendorf. The updates included the new hotel, the construction of a Starbucks and retail store on land sold to a developer by our client, and the demolition and construction of a new, high-end gas station. Bush Construction was thrilled to be a part of the regeneration of this area, not only because of the opportunity for our client but for the betterment of our community.
The construction of such a large hotel required a considerable amount of communication between the owner and Bush Construction. While quality communication is critical on all construction projects, it was especially crucial on this project as there were multiple owner-supplied materials, equipment, furniture, etc., which all needed to be coordinated.
