ATLANTA, GEORGIA (June 6, 2017) — Batson-Cook Construction is pleased to announce the completion of the new Renaissance Gateway Hotel at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
The seven-story, 136,000-square-foot luxury hotel features 204 rooms and a conference center with a ballroom and meeting rooms. Other amenities include a full-service restaurant, bar, fitness center and outdoor lounge. A luxurious executive suite encompassing 1,100 square feet is located on the top floor, and original artwork by many Atlanta area artists can be found throughout the building.
The Renaissance connects to the airport via the ATL SkyTrain. An additional 187 parking spaces were added to an existing parking deck at the site.
The project, which cost $36 million to construct, took 18 months to build.
“We are delighted to have partnered with Grove Street Partners, developers of the hotel, on this beautiful project,” said Steve McTighe, project executive with Batson-Cook. “Having the opportunity to contribute to the airport’s current $6-billion renovation program has been very rewarding for us.”
Rule Joy Trammell and Rubio of Atlanta was the architect for the project, and Rottet Studio designed the interior spaces. Mechanical, electrical and plumbing services were provided by McKenney’s, Inc., Excel Electrical Technologies, and Stasco Mechanical, respectively. At the peak of construction, more than 200 workers were on site.
