The Davenport Grand Hotel in Spokane, Washington (completed in June 2015) is the newest edition to the Davenport Collection. The new hotel is the largest building of its kind in the Spokane area, boasting 716 guest rooms and 63,177 square feet of meeting space. It is the largest commercial project that has been undertaken in the area to date. The hotel is connected to the Spokane Convention Center and INB Performing Arts Center by a sky bridge. It is anticipated the newly constructed hotel combined with an improved convention center will draw more visitors to the city.
The Davenport Grand Hotel joins the historic Davenport Hotel and The Davenport Tower as a Marriot Autograph Collection Hotel. The Autograph Collection is a group of independent, luxury hotels around the world that have been selected based on their originality, character, and uncommon details.
The Davenport Grand required products to meet air distribution needs in a variety of environments including kitchens, lobbies, conference and convention rooms, as well individual hotel rooms and suites. Each hotel room features a Linear Bar Diffuser - a high end, custom extruded aluminum diffuser with aesthetic and functional appeal. The linear bar diffusers were primed during manufacturing so when they arrived on the job site and were installed, the product was prepped and ready to be painted to color match with the room it was installed in. The priming process ensured paint adhered evenly and consistently. The color matching with the surrounding environment was very important in the room design as it provided continuity with the overall look and feel. Traditionally, air distribution products are painted white, which would not have provided the aesthetic harmony or level of elegance required for the project.
The convention area of this project was under a tight, fast time frame for completion. Shoemaker produced custom plenums for the linear slot diffusers that were shipped for installation during the rough-in stage, while the linear slot diffusers were shipped at the end of the project when they were ready to be installed. This approach allowed the project to stay on-time.
