Concord Hospitality Enterprises Breaks Ground on LEED-Designed 124-suite Courtyard
by Marriott Washington Meadow Hotel in Pittsburg Suburb, Washington, Pennsylvania

WASHINGTON, Pa., February 24, 2010—Officials of Concord Hospitality Enterprises, one of the nation’s top-ranked hotel developer/owner/operators, today announced the company recently broke ground on the124-suite, LEED-design Courtyard by Marriott Washington Meadow hotel in Washington, Pa., a Pittsburgh suburb.  The property is slated to open in early summer 2011.  Braun & Steidl Architects are the architects/designers, and McCay Contracting is the general contractor.

“We pioneered the first LEED-design Courtyard prototype in nearby Settlers Ridge, Pa., which opened last year and has been a tremendous success,” said Mark G. Laport, president and CEO of Concord Hospitality.  “This project has the same characteristics.  We have added a number of new innovations to the LEED-design concept, which will save some 30 percent in related costs, enough to pay back the investment in approximately five years.”

LEED-design improvements include:
  • More energy-efficient light fixtures and water-saving showers, lavatories and toilet fixtures
  • Enhanced heat recovery energy system, which reclaims building exhaust air to pre-heat the building’s fresh air system
  • More effective energy management system that further reduces unnecessary heating and cooling run times in unoccupied guest rooms
Located at 1800 Tanger Blvd. in Washington, Pa., the five-story Courtyard by Marriott is north of I-70 and I-79, near Tanger Outlets Mall.  The hotel features upgraded king guest suites that include a six-foot, walk-in shower with quarried Travertine stone.  The redesigned shower eliminates the need for shower doors.
