Marriott TownePlace Suites



The Marriott Towneplace Suites is a 65,000 square foot, four-level, 112 unit extended stay hotel in Lakeland, Fla., located just 30 miles from major attractions in Orlando, Fla. This TownePlace Suites will be a fourth-generation design for Marriott, which is new to the marketplace. Notably, Lakeland will be one of the first “Gen4” TownePlace Suites to be constructed.

This “Gen4” design introduces a modern façade, not historically seen at this flagship hotel, with in-room workstations and closets designed by The Container Store®. The select service style hotel has spacious suites with full-size kitchens, six foot corridors, fresh air distribution in the guestroom HVAC systems, and community spaces on the ground level. The building was constructed in accordance with Marriott’s Module 14 life safety requirements, which meets and partly exceeds local building codes for fire and life safety management.

The developer was InterMountain Management, one of the country’s leading hospitality management and development firms headquartered in Monroe, La. Because this new generation of Towneplace Suites was rolled out by Marriott only a short time before planning the Lakeland project, there was significant design development work to be done to execute the project concept.

Frampton Construction worked closely with Marriott and InterMountain Management to round out and finalize the design. At the time, the project’s construction had not been tested, so Frampton Construction helped refine the exterior and interior construction details in a way that made the project financially feasible. The Frampton team provided valuable cost option solutions that maintained the design concept while saving nearly seven percent on overall project costs without impacting the project schedule.

Dave Raymond, director of construction for Intermountain Management, LLC, commented, “The Frampton Construction team worked closely with us and Marriott to round out and finalize the new ‘Gen4’ design in such a way that made the project financially feasible without impacting the project schedule. This project is truly a testament to teamwork.”

 The project broke ground in December 2015 and took just twelve months to complete.

What Customers are saying

Frampton Construction’s team was invaluable to Aston when assessing a complicated re-development of a former big box store.  Their real time construction data and estimates allowed us to make sound risk management decisions about a highly complex deal.  More impressive has been Frampton’s ability to meet deadlines and provide excellent GC oversight of this major re-development and up-fit for a large, publicly traded telecom company.
