J.E. Richards, Inc. performed the electrical installation for the 625 Unit Marriott Renaissance and Residence Inn located in Arlington, VA. This is the first Marriott Hotel that is mixing both the “upscale” Renaissance Inn with their extended stay Residence Inn. Both “products” have their own lobbies and entrances, but share amenities such as Health and Fitness Center, Swimming Pool, and Restaurants.
The Potomac Yards Marriott project features an extraordinary lighting system. The system utilizes fluorescent, incandescent, cathode, and LED lighting, all controlled by a Lutron dimming system. There are 11 lighting control panels and 168 different light fixtures on the project. Spreadsheets were created for every panel that indicated each circuit for each light. This organization was crucial for the thousands of wires run to the lighting panels.
The Washington Building Congress recognized J.E. Richards, Inc. for outstanding craftsmanship for The Potomac Yards Marriott Renaissance & Residence Inn Project.
