Challenge

Efficiency and cost are the name of the game for contractors looking to secure work in an increasingly competitive market. So when a contractor puts in a bid for a job, they need every advantage they can get. That was the case with the Homewood Suites by Hilton project outside Washington, D.C., where contractor and designer WPM Construction needed to ensure every aspect of the project was as tightly planned as possible.

Solution

As a longtime collaborator with WPM, American Direct provided design assist services for the project, helping identify the most cost effective openings products on the market for the six-story, 165-room hotel. With American Direct’s guidance, WPM was able to incorporate a high-tech Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) locking system throughout the building, and use cost and time efficient prefinished steel door frames from Rediframe, saving thousands.
“We like the fact that American Direct sends a representative to do an inventory check on all delivered product. That person works directly with the installer so they are both looking over the same product at the same time, that way if there are any questions, concerns or issues, they can be immediately addressed, and they both are on the same page.” — Dennis Schambach, WPM Project Manager
