Mortenson teamed with the lead developer and owner, Akara Partners, on Home2 Suites, a 17-story, 206-room extended-stay hotel, while also serving as the design-builder with Norr Architects. Mortenson built the flagship hotel at 110 West Huron Street in Chicago in just 14 months on the site of a former parking lot. Home2 Suites is a 120,000 square-foot building featuring a modern glass enclosure system and a jump lobby configuration to maximize space for 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.
Key project tools included virtual reality, lean construction and green features such as sorting, recycling and tracking nearly 90% of construction waste and a green roof using sustainable materials.
