Hirschfeld Industries Awarded JW Marriott – Austin, TX

JW Marriott – Austin, TXHirschfeld Industries was awarded the Structural Steel package for the new JW Marriott Hotel in Austin, Texas, by Hunt/Hardin, Joint Venture (Hunt Construction Group and Hardin Construction Company).

This luxury convention hotel was designed by HKS, and is projected to be Austin’s largest hotel as well as JW Marriott’s largest US hotel to date.  It features 1,012 rooms, 35 meeting rooms, 115,000 square feet of meeting, banquet and exhibition space, two major food and beverage venues, underground parking and a full service fitness center.  Located in the heart of downtown Austin, it is slated to open in early 2015.

“Due to its downtown location and the fact that it comprises one full city block, it is going to be a complex inner city construction process,” stated Shannon Whalen, Hirschfeld’s Director of Preconstruction, “and its one we’re looking forward to tackling.”

Hirschfeld’s package includes over 2,300 tons of structural steel, trusses, stairs and elevator framing.  A groundbreaking ceremony hosted by JW Marriott Austin was held October 16, 2012.

Hirschfeld’s hotel experience includes projects such as the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, as well as the Intercontinental Hotel in Houston and the Caesars Palace Spa Tower in Las Vegas, among others.
