Olympia worked with Opechee Construction to develop the hotel using a design build methodology. This approach served to mitigate risk at a time when the local and national economy was in turmoil by locking in construction costs early in the design process. Olympia enhanced the public area finishes above the Hampton prototype and worked with the Nashua Historical society to create custom artwork for the guestrooms. This artwork package referenced the people, buildings and machinery of the textile industry that was central to the historic development of Nashua as a commercial center.
The Challenge & Construction
To design, permit and build a select service franchise hotel on a previously developed site during the economic crisis. Managing entitlements and risk were the greatest challenges in developing this market-leading hotel.
The design build approach to this project served to control construction costs and insulate Olympia from the effects of pricing fluctuations and subcontractor availability during construction.
