Marriott Marquis Convention Center

Washington, DC After the Capitol Visitor Center, a convention centre with 1 150 rooms

Proud to have made its contribution to fitting up the Capitol Hill Tower & Marriott Hotel and the Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, Beaubois is now enthusiastically carrying out a major architectural woodworking contract as part of the construction of the Marriott Marquis Convention Center, a four-star destination located downtown in the American capital.

The Marriott Marquis Convention Center will have 15 stories, seven of which will be located underground to comply with the height restrictions imposed by the city since 1910. The 1 150 guestrooms, three restaurants and health centre will be located on the upper floors while the convention centre will take up the underground floors.

The talent of Ébénisterie Beaubois will be displayed in most of the property's sectors. The firm will produce and install the vanities, minibars and mouldings in the hotel rooms. The marble-covered counters in the reception and the Concierge Lounge as well as the wall panels are also included in its mandate.

The Beaubois team will craft the marble and quartz clad bars for the three restaurants and the wall panels and banquettes for each of them.

The enormous ballroom (250 x 140 ft), ornamented by wood wall panels fabricated by Beaubois will be the centrepiece. Marble, fabrics and glass accents will then be incorporated to give this splendid room its unique charm. Lastly, the Beaubois team will furnish the wall panels and mouldings for all the meeting rooms.

Fitting up 15 floors simultaneously is quite the challenge and demands rigorous coordination with everyone involved in the project. As Beaubois has demonstrated countless times in the past, the firm's experience and expertise guarantees work of exceptional quality delivered within the established deadlines.

The Convention Centre is slated to open in the summer of 2014 and was designed to meet LEED Silver standards. With its architecture and exterior cladding materials, the Marriott Marquis Convention Center will blend beautifully into downtown's urban landscape.

Willard and Alice Marriott and guided by the Marriott family for over 80 years, the company is headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, USA.
