Peak Construction is Welcoming Back Hospitality with the Completion of Holiday Inn Express
Peak Construction recently completed the Holiday Inn Express in Lockport, IL on behalf of Janko Group during first quarter 2021.
Developed by The Janko Group and built by Peak Construction, this hotel caters to both corporate and leisure travelers, meeting the rising demand for lodging in the post-COVID travel era.
The three-story, 81 room, 50,347 square foot limited-service hotel features a pool, fitness area, large lobby and lounge, breakfast area, 800 square foot meeting space and business center. Peak Construction teamed with NORR as the Architect and RTM Engineering Consultants as the Civil Engineer. Completion occurred during first quarter of 2021 and the hotel opened this past Spring.
Located just off Interstate 355 and 159th Street in Lockport, Illinois, the new hotel is part of the 60+ acre Lockport Square. The Holiday Inn Express is visible from Interstate I-355 and will service both of corporate and leisure travelers in and around the Chicago suburb where demand outweighs the supply in terms of lodging.
In addition to starting construction in December, Peak Construction was challenged with the advent of the global pandemic a few months later. Peak Construction avoided any project schedule delays impacting site utilities due to Illinois’ Shelter in Place by continuing with construction of the building foundation, column pads and slab on grade. A number of delays caused by the Covid-19 were managed by the field team through a daily project schedule to meet milestone deadlines regardless of the disruption. Through teamwork, communication and creativity, the project was completed successfully despite enduring the challenges presented by the pandemic.
