This luxury hotel has a distinct architectural design that graces the Grand Rapids skyline and provides guests with an experience like none other in the Midwest. Its 337 rooms and 660-space parking structure support events at such venues as DeVos Place and the Grand Rapids Art Museum. The hotel created 250 new service industry jobs and the 110,000 sq. ft. convention center is projected to generate $15 to $20 million of revenue for the community annually. A study in efficiency, an average of 186 people worked 17 hours a day, seven days a week for 24 months. Shipments of materials were delivered at night to minimize disruption to nearby businesses and neighboring Amway Grand Plaza Hotel guests as well as reduce the need for road and lane closures. Amassing knowledge as they went, Rockford’s crew tightened the schedule by installing one floor every five days, finally reaching the 23rd story and helipad at a height of 256 feet. Budget $97,000,000. Supervision Mike VanGessel, Mike Gnewkowski.
TOTAL COST: $59,000,000 SUPERVISION: Roger Rehkopf and Shane Napper UNIQUE FEATURES: The Grand Rapids Art Museum is the first newly built, Gold LEED certified art museum in the world. Its modest 135,000 square feet includes gallery and exhibition space, a family learning center, gift shop, auditorium and café. Perhaps its most unique features, however, are the sustainable design specifications. Lead gift donor Peter M. Wege insisted upon the $60 million building’s LEED certification status to ensure that the design would both celebrate and respect the environment. Sustainable design elements can be found in everything from the strategy to carefully bring natural light and fresh air inside the facility to the building’s small footprint connects the building to a protected green space in the heart of urban Grand Rapids. An extensive water reclamation process vastly reduces consumption from the City’s resources. In all, the construction project recycled 32,840.3 tons of waste, which is an astounding 88.31 percent of the total.
