Hotel gets LED-lit sculpture
A major hotel has unveiled an LED-lit sculpture as its centrepiece following renovation of the premises.
The Chicago Marriot recently underwent extensive refurbishment costing approximately Â£8.7 million.
Constructors Bulley and Andrews carried out the work which included updating the lobby and installing LED lights.
In addition to a new bar, an LED sculpture was incorporated into the reception area and currently lights up the entire room.
Other renovations included the creation of a sweeping staircase and construction of a ballroom.
Bill Kroeger, project executive at the construction firm, explained that the project proved a challenging and rewarding process.
"There were daily schedule changes and continuous communication with hotel management in order for the hotel operations to continue without disruption," he told Building Design and Construction.
"When it was complete, the end product was a success for the Marriott."
Meanwhile, Whitbread recently announced that its Premier Inn, in Tamworth, was installed with LED lights in order to reduce carbon emissions.
