Women in Construction: Their Challenges, Their Surprises, And Their Hopes for the Future
Continental is celebrating National Women in Construction Week by spotlighting some of our team members who bring their very best to their jobs every day. And, while this nationally celebrated week may have originated as a way to highlight the roles and contributions that women make in the field of construction, at Continental we feel it’s also important to recognize the gender-specific struggles, challenges, and surprises some women have experienced throughout their careers as well.
Inside, Outside (and Everything in Between): More Public Spaces
From inside to outside – and everything in between – when it comes to hospitality renovation Continental has (just about) done it all. After 20 years in hospitality renovation, we’ve never grown tired of the satisfaction we get from breathing new life into an old space, helping it become new again. And, while we may have started out as experts in guestroom renovations, we’ve made a significant mark in public space projects, too.
New Year, New Look for Hotel MdR DoubleTree Marina Del Rey
Located minutes away from Los Angeles International Airport and a short drive to the glitz and glamour of LA, the Hotel MdR DoubleTree by Hilton in Marina del Rey, California is the perfect hub location for both frequent and new travelers to sunny Southern California. Just steps from the beautiful marina, the hotel features a casual, yet modern design that perfectly captures that contemporary SoCal vibe.
Continental Scores a Home Run in Boston
A pitcher’s throw away from the home of the Boston Red Sox, the Residence Inn Boston Back Bay/Fenway strayed a bit from the typical Marriott brand standard and took a swing at incorporating some of that old Boston charm into their newly renovated suites. From the wall finishes and case goods down to the modern carpet motif, this stylish all-suite hotel is a love letter to Boston’s historic landmarks, beautiful scenery, and favorite pastime – baseball.
Continental for the Win at the Marina del Rey Marriott
Located just three blocks from Venice Beach with easy access to many Los Angeles attractions, the Marina del Rey Marriott offers a location that is a perfect balance of relaxation and accessibility. Plus, its close proximity to both LAX International Airport and SoFi Stadium – host to the 2022 Superbowl – made it a popular destination for those traveling in February of 2022 to see the Los Angeles Rams play (and win) against the Cincinnati Bengals in Superbowl LVI.
Continental Rises to the Challenge At the JW Marriott Orlando
Located in the heart of central Florida and situated amongst 500 acres of lush, tropical landscape, the JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes, offers a resort experience to be remembered. From poolside excitement at the water park to a round of golf on the award-winning course, the JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes has something for everyone – most notably of which is the newly renovated, luxurious accommodations welcoming guests to relax and recharge after a day of fun in the sun.
Hilton Bayfront San Diego
A fresh and modern take on the quintessential coastal state-of-mind, the Hilton Bayfront San Diego, steps from the Gaslamp Quarter, delivers unparalleled views at every turn. Rising above the San Diego Bay, this signature resort incorporates both city and coastal elements, embracing everything Southern California has to offer.
Continental to the Rescue for Pittsburgh Marriott North
The newly renovated Pittsburgh Marriott North brings the dramatic and extravagant temperament of “the steel city” inside. Nearly unrecognizable from its prior aesthetic, the lobby and atrium remodel transformed this public space from an outdated jungle-like ambience, to the fresh and modern design it is today. Envisioned by Architect/Designer Winegardner & Hammons and executed by Continental Contractors, the impressive focal points of the property express every form and texture that steel can possess: molten, rigid, bent, smooth, rusted, even reflective.
Hayes Mansion Hotel Renovation
In August 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic, Continental completed exciting renovations of public spaces and guestrooms for Hayes Mansion, in San Jose, California. Despite the unique challenges that renovating a historic property can bring, we worked tirelessly to transform this beautiful property.
