Featured Hospitality Projects
Fairfield Inn by Marriott
Central Location in Awesome Alpharetta.
Our team, in partnership with HOS Management and Elevate Architecture Studio, will deliver this Marriott model on Webb Bridge Road, just a few minutes away from downtown Alpharetta and less than a mile from the Avalon. The future five-story Fairfield Inn will feature 166 guest rooms, a fitness room, bike racks, and electrical vehicle charging stations. At a little over 78,000 square feet, the structure will be situated on a six-acre lot. This is our third project in partnership with the Savannah-based HOS Management team, and our first project awarded in Georgia.
Fairfield Inn by Marriott
Ground-Up Build by Busch Gardens.
Our team recently broke ground on a new Fairfield Inn & Suites in North Tampa. The future Marriott model will be a 51,000 sf, five-story ground-up project with a fitness center, and an outdoor pool and patio area available to guests. Situated on a 2-acre lot, the site is located on North 30th Street off East Fowler Avenue, across the street from the popular Tampa amusement park, Busch Gardens. An infill lot development that will take about two years to complete before it opens to guests, Firmo will also collaborate with architect Abhay Pradhan from AP Architecture to bring this turn-key hotel to completion.
Tru by Hilton
Ground-up Build near Southpoint.
Our team was hired to build a Tru by Hilton in Jacksonville by I-95 South. In partnership with Jacksonville-based hospitality development group, OMSHIV JAX LLC, we were awarded the project earlier this year and celebrated the start of the construction process with a groundbreaking ceremony. Bringing decades of combined experience with Hilton builds and the hospitality industry, Firmo Construction, OMSHIV JAX LLC, and the project's architect, Bharat R Patel Architect, Inc., will deliver this Hilton model at 4945 Lenoir Ave in South Jacksonville. The future four-story Tru by Hilton will feature 98 guest rooms, a fitness room, patio, outdoor pool, and lounge and gaming area. At a little over 45,000 square feet, the structure will be situated on a 2.65-acre lot.
Tapestry Collection by Hilton
FORT MYERS, FLORIDA
Luxury, Full-Service Conversion.
Our team was hired to transform downtown Fort Myers' Hotel Indigo into a Tapestry Collection, Hilton's newest upscale brand, within 6 months. The top-to-bottom conversion of the 8-story property will feature 72 unique guest suites, a fully renovated rooftop pool & bar, a new commercial kitchen, and a lobby bar for expanded food and beverage offering. We're applying a phasing technique during construction so different floors are always open to guests, allowing the full-service hotel to remain fully operational throughout renovation.
Hampton Inn by Hilton
FORT MYERS, FLORIDA
Downtown Infill Development from the Ground Up.
This 4-story, 65,000 sf ground up Hilton build is located on downtown Fort Myers' traffic artery. It will feature 118 rooms, an outdoor pool and patio, a flexible boardroom, and a fitness center. Situated on a two-acre lot, the building will be an infill lot development. Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities have been applied to the entire design, meaning that virtual reality (VR) and 3D LiDAR scanning will be used to review designs throughout construction.
Tru by Hilton
First in the Region.
The first of Hilton’s newest brand to be built in the Florida Gulf Coast region, we implemented VR technology to build this infill development, 3-story, 81-room hotel from the ground up. Located in Bradenton by I-75 and SR-70, this ground-up build was brought to life for Divine Hospitality in partnership with AP Architecture. Utilizing our Virtual Reality service prior to breaking ground, our team was able to reduce cost and potential delays throughout construction. We worked closely with development entities to mitigate land-use issues while ensuring the hotel was delivered safely, on budget, and on time.
