Porte Cochere at the Sheraton Hotel Takes Shape

Porte Cochere at the Sheraton Hotel Takes Shape

We are making some exciting progress at the Sheraton Hotel renovation in Downtown Denver! This month, general contractor PWI Construction placed major structural beams for the new porte cochere at the Sheraton. 

Putting together a structure of this size is no small feat. To give you perspective: each beam is approximately 30” deep and weighs 124 pounds for every foot of length. At 70’ long, some beams weigh over four tons!

Also, in the photo you can see in the foreground the diamond shaped footing for the new bar that will anchor the corner, and the structural framing for that element to the right. 

We are making progress on the interior as well. This elegant coffee bar on the ground floor is steadily coming to life. Check out the photo above to see what the final product will look like.

The Sheraton Denver Hotel was originally designed by renowned architect, I.M. Pei. Our redesign incorporates elements of I.M. Pei’s original modern architecture and references the beatnik movement of the 1950s and 60s, a time that embodied a culture in which travel, adventure and music drove one’s passions and experiences. 

This renovation will transform the face of the hotel and create a vibrant, engaging space on the 16th Street Mall. 

Check back for more updates as this project nears completion later this year!
