Cicero’s Development Corporation declared that the task of refurbishing the Holiday Inn University Center Hotel in Pittsburgh was completed well within the scheduled time and budget.
The renovation took a year, cost millions of dollars and included work on 251 guest rooms, two spacious ballrooms, fitness center, foyer, mezzanine floor meeting halls, business rooms, executive offices, public bathrooms and staff areas.
Over 3000 square yards of carpet work, more than 17,000 linear yards of vinyl wall covering, painting of more than 1300 doors and frames, widespread lighting work, renewal of HVAC systems in all meeting areas, and work on pool area and other areas of the hotel were part of the renovation. The interiors of rooms also had new fittings such as beds, art pieces, flat screen televisions, etc. Cicero’s was assisted by the regional skilled workforce of the Veterans Leadership Program from Pittsburgh in completing the task. Veterans Leadership Program proffers job, accommodation and other necessary support services to worthy veterans, service members and their families to boost the quality of life and self-sufficiency of the people in western Pennsylvania.
The Chief Engineer of Holiday Inn University Center Hotel praised the perfect job done by Cicero’s, who dealt with many hindrances during the course of the renovation, with minimal disturbance to the guests. He added that guests who kept visiting liked the new rooms immensely.
