The Iowa Events Center project is a $101 million, four-star, full-service Hilton Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa. The 8-floor, 330-room, 170,000-square-foot space features a large ballroom for special events, underground parking, and a full-service restaurant that will support the growing popularity of downtown Des Moines.
PIVOTEK collaborated with the client, architect, and Weitz Construction during the design and preconstruction phases to coordinate the completion and delivery of 300 fully finished bathroom units for the project. PIVOTEK worked with the project as a design assist partner to ensure that each unit met all local code requirements, Hilton brand standards, and that each unit was easily incorporated into the construction process. According to Weitz Construction, from a lean perspective, prefabrication allowed Weitz to reduce waste on site by 15 tons and enabled small batch deliveries to arrive just in time so the site was less congested.
