Pyramid Project Management: The Doral Golf Resort & Spa Bossa Nova Lounge Restaurant & Wine Room
SITUATION > The Doral Golf Resort Miami’s Bossa Nova Lounge is located in the clubhouse lobby level. The client’s vision was to transform a once aged restaurant and hotel into a beautiful, modern facility. The specific scope items included extensive renovations of the bar, restaurant, wine room, sushi bar and buffet area. The entire project had to be completed in time for the FedEx Orange Bowl - just 90 days away. The project posed several significant challenges including major logistical issues related to ongoing activities, staging areas and the age of the building. The team also installed high-end interior finishes such as the stamped copper bar top designed by a local artist, hardwood floors and specialty lighting.
ACTION > As a high-profile facility situated within a busy resort and spa, the project team developed a logistics and safety plan which prevented inconveniencing hotel guests due to construction. One of the challenges was completing the project within the prescribed time frame in a city known for its strict building codes and complex permitting process. As one of Miami’s most reputable commercial contractors, T&G was able to schedule inspections at anytime, which is often necessary for occupied facilities with an aggressive construction schedule. Additional services included three crew shifts; this allowed for a 24-hour work schedule.
RESULTS > The client was pleased with T&G’s ability to manage the entire project scope, from the initial planning phase through construction and ultimate turnover. In spite of significant challenges, T&G successfully completed this top quality project within budget and in time for the opening of The FedEx Orange Bowl.
