Kimpton Pittman Hotel
Originally designed in 1916 as the historic Knights of Pythias Temple, this iconic building in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas, Texas recently reopened its doors as the luxurious Kimpton Pittman Hotel. Having sat vacant for decades but being deemed an historic landmark, it was important to restore the original structure with a modern building design. Experts constructed an adjoining section that blends new and old together to create this boutique hotel from Balfour Beatty and Perkins + Will.
KSC created and implemented 3D laser scanning and custom metal fabrication to install fire rated core aluminum composite material for the 1,000 custom metal building panels. Both the KSC 2100 ventilated rain-screen system and architectural louvers were utilized to complete this innovative project.
Particular attention to logistics played an important role because of the extremely tight urban setting. Material delivery and installation required orchestration with the onsite management team to ensure the project plan and timeline were adhered to. Every phase had to perfectly align as to not disrupt the normal flow of the area. Through careful management and oversight, a cohesive work structure culminated in an elegant building that will continue to provide character in the community for years to come.
