Hitt Contracting awarded second phase of renovation at Hilton McLean Tysons Corner
- June 14, 2011
After just completing a major renovation of the Hilton McLean’s lobby and other public spaces, Hitt Contracting Inc. announced Tuesday that it was awarded a second phase of work as the Tysons Corner property continues to be upgraded into a corporate flagship. According to the Falls Church-based contractor, the $3.5 million second phase will include a retrofit of the ballrooms — including the addition of a 3,000 square-foot junior ballroom — pre-function areas, meeting rooms and an exterior side entrance. Also working on the project, which gets underway this week, are Mark Anderson Consultants as the construction manager and TVS Design Architects.
Since moving its worldwide headquarters from Los Angeles to Fairfax County in August 2009, Hilton has been turning the 458-room property at Tysons Corner into a showpiece property. The company totally revamped the lobby with a contemporary design, and a new restaurant, Harth, opened in April.
Hitt, among the 100 largest general contractors in the country, does a lot of work for the hospitality industry. “In the Washington region we’ve delivered over 3,500 guest rooms and amenity spaces during the past seven years. Recent projects include the BWI Hilton, Arundel Mills Hilton, Hay Adams Hotel, the W Hotel and the Four Seasons Hotel,” Executive Vice President Yogen Patel said in a statement.
