Painting a Hotel in San Francisco - the JW Marriott!
There's no doubt that in some ways, every painting project is unique. However, some are more unique than others! That's how we felt about one of our recent commercial painting projects: the JW Marriott hotel in San Francisco. This elegant context was a wonderful place to apply our skills in new ways and work with a team to produce a beautiful result!
So, what made this hotel painting project different? Well, where to start?
Scope and Timing
The JW Marriott painting project was fairly large in its scope. We painted many sophisticated rooms and areas in the hotel, including:
- Four salons (small conference rooms)
- One board room
- One ballroom
- Two bathrooms
- A hallway area
While we are used to large commercial painting projects, we had to be careful to stick to the deadline. Our timeline for this was two and a half weeks. We finished it on-schedule, and the hotel was able to unveil its newly-renovated spaces as planned.
Materials and Processes
The most interesting aspect of this project was the special glossy coating we used on six large pillars. After the normal surface preparation, we applied a special base coat with the colorant. Next came a metallic top coat for a unique, elegant finish. While it's not flashy, the glossy finish has an amazing depth and richness to it, wouldn't you agree?
Besides the pillars, we also painted the ceilings, casings, crown moldings, and baseboard. We used ultra-flat white for the ceilings. The other moldings were all semi-gloss, either white or gray.
Coordinating the Project
On a commercial remodeling project like this, it is inevitable that we end up coordinating our services with the other tradespeople. For this hotel painting venture, there were wallpaper installers, electricians, and carpenters who also needed to access this space. With good communication and management, we were all able to finish our individual parts of the project without stepping on each other's toes, or messing up each other's work. What a rewarding experience!
