Design and Construction Week 2023

Oct 18, 2023

The extended Design & Construction team recently convened as a full team in person with the goal of relationship building with our invaluable resource community (vendors), foster trust and team bonding, establish and educate the department on new operating standards, our ESG mission and its recent successes, and develop goals for the department’s future. We wanted to also give the team hands on experience with our resort project: Barnsley Resort and experience the amenities and understand the broader scope (multi-million dollar master plan development to improve the resort). Finally, we gained insights into manufacturing by touring one of the largest flooring solutions provider in the world with a hands on plant tour and peek into their creative studio developing new products. There, we learned about sustainability and the mission to improve our hotels with high quality products that stand the test of time. Throughout the week, we engaged with preferred vendor partners that educated us on their process, their solutions, and how Davidson can continue to partner with the best rated providers for all of our projects.
