The new 2,310 SF Physician’s Lounge offers healthcare providers with extra support and a quiet space for decompression away from public areas of the hospital. This Design + Build project transforms the existing space through warm colors, clean finishes, and lodge-type design. Located next to the facility’s ICU unit, all construction on the physician’s lounge took place in short duration during scheduled non-quiet hours and was coordinated through careful scheduling and clear communication with hospital staff.
Combining the work space, lounge, food service area, dining, tele-health space, lactation room, IT room, space for team meetings, and rest area with the central location of the Physician’s Lounge on the campus facilitates quality, convenience, and comfort for healthcare professionals. Other features include wall-mounted TVs, two refrigerators and a display fridge, and induction warmers for grab-and-go meals.
Loven Contracting completed a 224,458SF remodel of the Little America Hotel Main Lodge and Guestroom Lodges located in Flagstaff, Arizona. This project transformed the aging 1972 hotel and lodge, both in design, and operational and systems efficiencies.
The revitalized hotel features a contemporary design with updated finishes, local textures, and natural elements and is now considered one of the most desirable hospitality options in Flagstaff, providing a wide range of accommodations.
Little America Hotel’s ability to maintain the majority of their revenue stream throughout the construction process was the key to the project’s success, and the construction team hit key phase dates for multiple temporary returns to 100% occupancy during the remodel. This was accomplished through strategic phasing of the work into single buildings with targeted completion for holidays and special events. A robust safety plan — enabling all other facilities to remain 100% functional throughout construction — was essential to a high quality experience for hotel guests and staff.
The scope of work included:
Remodel of the Main Lodge: all ballrooms, meeting rooms, reception lobby, gift shop, restaurant, public restrooms, banquet kitchen, administration offices, and storage areas.
Construction of an outdoor dining terrace.
Remodel of 250 guest rooms in four individual lodge buildings.
Replacement of HVAC equipment and sewer lines in all buildings.
Enhanced ADA compliance via installation of new elevators in three guestroom lodges, new accessible entrance features, accessibility upgrades to all public restrooms, and the remodel and addition of new accessible guestrooms to current codes.
Roof replacement and installation of fire sprinkler systems and fire lines in all buildings.
Potential long term savings were achieved via key system upgrades, including a new roof with open cell foam insulation on all renovated facilities, energy efficient LED lighting to meet APS Energy Efficiency Rebate standards, energy efficient HVAC system and controls, and water conserving fixtures.
Loven Contracting worked with Highlands Fire District on the Design+Build delivery of a 4,000SF Fire Administration Building addition to the existing Fire Station and a 2,400SF Pre-Engineered Metal Building for the Bear Jaw Wildfire Hand Crew.
Construction took place during a heavy monsoon season, requiring 8-foot over-excavation, fill, and compaction to prepare the site. During construction, our team identified a leak in the fire loop as well as drainage challenges that were causing failure of the surrounding pavement. Loven Contracting mitigated these issues via a 3’ over-excavation and substrate rebuild to support heavy vehicle traffic. By completing this concurrently with the original scope of work, this enabled our client to achieve meaningful savings and we completed the project on-schedule.

Originally built in the 1970’s, the Yavapai Lodge required updates that would enable the facility to provide quality visitor services and experience. The lodge now features functional, contemporary spaces with historical imagery and colors evocative of the Grand Canyon and Southwest.
