Project will enhance hotel meetings and culinary offerings as South Florida market continues to boom

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (August 25, 2022) – Shawmut Design and
Construction, a leading $1.3 billion national construction management
firm [2], completed the steel topping off of the Hilton Fort Lauderdale
Marina’s new 38,000-square-foot event center, slated for completion
this year.

In partnership with Adache Group Architects and HBA, the new, two-level
building will feature 28,500 square feet of event and meeting space and
a 9,500 square foot rooftop restaurant and bar. The first level will
feature three ballrooms with 30-foot-high ceilings with specialty
millwork and architectural lighting. For state-of-the-art meeting and
event capabilities, there will be hidden A/V systems and high-end shade
systems throughout. The restaurant will operate out of a full-service
kitchen including a full cookline and brick oven exhibition kitchen. It
will feature an executive private dining room in addition to the bar and
general seating area.

The careful planning and construction management to reach the topping
off milestone began before the team even broke ground. Partnering with
Shawmut’s engineering services division and mechanical, electrical,
plumbing, and fire protection (MEP/FP) subcontractors, the Shawmut
the project team used BIM (Building Information Modeling) to digitally build
the entire structure, solving for coordination conflicts and system
clashes ahead of time. This allowed for work to be put in place faster,
resulting in enhanced field productivity, efficiency, and time savings.

“The topping off at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina event center
marks an exciting milestone in the hotel’s expansion in one of
Florida’s most bustling coastal cities,” said Tim Barges, director
of South Florida at Shawmut Design and Construction. “Our team’s
experience working within fully operational hotels has proven key to
this project, working alongside the active hotel while keeping everyone
safe, mitigating noise, and maintaining an open line of communication
with hotel management.”

Currently, the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina has 595 guest rooms, an
outdoor pool, two dining outlets, 33-slip marina, 20,000 square feet of
meeting space, an EV charging station, and a 24-hour fitness center.
