Poettker continues to bolster its hospitality profile in St. Louis
Poettker Construction, a second-generation family-owned construction company, is currently renovating the former Majestic Hotel in downtown St. Louis. For this project, Hawkeye Hotels engaged Poettker Construction’s hospitality experts to transform this 9-story hotel into a high-end Le Méridien Marriott Hotel.
Poettker is managing the overall project along with self-performing key selective demolition and carpentry items in order to help ensure the project schedule is maintained.
“The Poettker team is thrilled to be a part of this high-end renovation in downtown St. Louis,” said Keith Poettker, president of Poettker Construction. “During preconstruction, we recommended many value engineering options to ensure the project would be completed on time and within budget without sacrificing the French design influences unique to the Le Méridien brand.”
The Le Méridien brand has 18 hotels in the United States, with this being the first one in the St. Louis area. Amenities will include 96 luxury guest suites and rooms, sophisticated lobby and event spaces, an upscale restaurant and bar, and a modern fitness area.
Poettker Construction anticipates project completion in early Fall 2019. The architect of record for the project is Coleman Partners Architects, LLC based in Baton Rouge, La.
Established in 1980, Poettker Construction is a second-generation, family-owned and veteran-owned business specializing in construction management, design/build, general contracting and self-perform services with an emphasis to exceed the client’s expectations.
