Case Study: DoubleTree by Hilton

About the Project

The DoubleTree by Hilton
A&K Services:
Exterior Paint | Rebranding | Hotel Painting

Why They Chose A&K Painting

The DoubleTree was in need of a severe face lift. The exterior of the building was a muted shade of Green with fading accents resulting in an unpleasing facade. Hotels and all buildings in the hospitality industry need to showcase an inviting look of cleanliness – this building did not. A&K was also tasked with matching the new exterior of the building with the interior scheme from a previous renovation.

Getting Started: Job Renderings

A&K’s goal was to give the hotel a fresh look that represented cleanliness. We understand the complexities of working with large national brands and have the utmost respect for maintaining brand standards. A&K worked with hotel ownership to help facilitate the approval process. To make the process easier for DoubleTree, A&K created building renderings to give an accurate representation of what the structure would look like when the job is complete.

Project Kick Off: Work Started

A&K had to work quickly and with very specific time frames to ensure minimal disruption to guests staying at the property. We worked closely with engineering to plan our route throughout the building.

Materials: Sherwin Williams Loxon Self Cleaning Acrylic Coating

A&K Painting used a newer product from Sherwin Williams, Loxon Self Cleaning Acrylic Coating. This coating system is a self cleaning paint that preserves a clean appearance longer.  This coating is also hydrophobic, which means it has a thin surface layer that repels water.

Water droplets that hit a hydrophobic coating can fully rebound, washing away dirt and debris.

Project Communication: JobNet

JobNet is A&K Painting’s proprietary software that acts as a communication tool between A&K Painting and our clients. Every day, summary reports and photos are uploaded to JobNet and emailed directly to clients in an easy to read project link.

The Final Result

Upon completion of this project the DoubleTree hotel was completely unrecognizable from it’s previous state. The exterior of the hotel has a fresh clean look that embodies the essence of cleanliness that a hotel should. And because A&K used self cleaning paints from Sherwin Williams, this look should last the hotel for years to come.
