Check out the construction progress of what's being called the largest Candlewood Suites in the world...
Cleveland Construction, Inc. is currently the general contractor for the Fort Sam Houston Candlewood Suites hotel located in San Antonio, Texas.
This new 5-story pre-fabricated cold-formed metal panel structure is over 153,000 square-feet and includes 310 studio and one-bedroom suites with fully-equipped kitchens and large work areas in each room. Other hotel amenities include a swimming pool with patio pavilion, business and fitness centers, guest laundry facilities, breakfast bar and on-post shuttle service.
The exterior building envelope consists of gypsum board sheathing, fluid applied vapor barrier, EIFS, TPO roofing system, and blast resistant windows and storefront systems.
Work continues this week on the exterior concrete sidewalks, EIFS, preparation of the swimming pool area and final site grading. Interior work includes drywall taping and finishing, installation of ceramic tile, vinyl flooring, interior doors and hardware, toilet and bath accessories, electrical and HVAC devices and trim, and installation of the elevator systems.
The hotel is part of the Privatization of Army Lodging (PAL) program, a U.S. Army-led program established as a means to revitalize on-post lodging facilities for soldiers, their families and all government travelers. When completed in July of 2014, the hotel will be the largest Candlewood Suites in the world.
