At the AC Hotel in Beverly Hills, providing customers with an excellent experience inside the hotel is just as important as on the patio. And like any high-end hotel construction project that requires premium materials and design elements, the patio and exterior canopies were a key feature of the hotel design, extending the style and aesthetic of the lobby to the glass-encased patio facing Wilshire Blvd. The design and materials specified on the patio were chosen to provide a sleek and modern look while also being durable and functional to withstand high temperatures and quick swells of wind blowing between the skyscrapers of downtown Los Angeles.
The tight schedule and integration with the metal axiom fascia trim presented minor challenges, but Rulon was able to meet the needs of the project and provide a high-quality product that was installed efficiently.
CHALLENGE & ACTION
Endure Linear 900 was selected for the project to extend the exterior ceiling from the covered patio onto the exterior canopies, separated by glass walls. A metal axiom fascia trim was used on the perimeter to provide a clean and finished appearance. Despite the tight schedule, Rulon was able to ship the order within 2 weeks, ensuring that there were no delays to the project timeline and the hotel was able to open on time. The installation of the Endure Linear 900 slats went quickly and smoothly, with no major issues and no additional material required. The owner, architect, and general contractor were all very pleased with the finished ceiling and how efficient it was to install, and the end result was a sleek and functional exterior canopy that was in line with the high-end design aesthetic of the hotel.
In conclusion, the AC Hotel in Beverly Hills was a successful construction project that utilized Endure Linear 900 extruded polymer ceiling system to provide a modern and functional design element. The tight schedule and integration with the metal axiom fascia trim presented minor challenges, but Rulon was able to meet the needs of the project and provide a high-quality product that was installed efficiently. The end result was a sleek and functional patio and exterior canopy that was well received by the owner, architect, and general contractor.
