Over the last several years, Heroica Construction has been performing a wide range of interior fit-out work covering the majority of the CSI Finishes Division. Last year our scope of work expanded from painting contract work to providing general construction services. Due to the commitment and hard work achieved during this expansion, Heroica Construction was awarded a contract with leading Rhode Island hotel and commercial complex developer, The Procaccianti Group.
The renovation of the Holiday Inn, located in South Kingstown, marks the turning point in our transition from a painting operation to fulfilling the role of a general contractor. This several hundred thousand dollar project consisted of renovations to the some of the most coveted, high-traffic locations within the hotel including the Lobby, Restaurant, and Bar & Lounge. Additional interior fit-out work was also completed for the public restrooms, front desk, office area, and kitchen.
The scope of work for this transformative project consisted of selective demolition, concrete and saw cutting, rough and finish carpentry, doors and hardware, metal stud framing of walls and soffits, acoustical tile ceilings (ATC), millwork, painting, carpet and ceramic tile flooring, wall covering, glazing, toilet partitions, bathroom accessories, plumbing, electrical, and furniture fixtures and equipment (FFE).
With a knack for specialized finishes, Heroica Construction self performed the general conditions, demolition, metal stud framing, drywall and taping, ATC, painting, wall covering, carpentry, and bathroom accessories necessary for the successful completion of this project. To supplement the remaining scope of work, Heroica thoroughly qualified, selected, and contracted with 15 vendors and 9 subcontractors.
Paramount to the launch of construction work, Heroica Construction initiated state and local regulatory reviews and applied for a building permit, which was completed in record time to meet the projected start date. All of these critical pre-construction tasks were achieved through the dedication of our office and management staff, experienced journeymen, workers, and field staff.
