Hospitality

The dedicated staff of the KLH Hospitality market segment specializes in engineering designs for motels/hotels, convention centers, entertainment venues and specialty chef-driven restaurants. The spaces our team helps to create support the travel, lodging, conferencing and gaming industries. KLH’s project experience ranges from new builds, conversions, product improvement plans, and major renovations. Our project portfolio includes a variety of flags by recognized brands such as Hilton, Marriott, and the Intercontinental Hotel Group as well as Starwood and the 21c Museum Hotel. Hotel system design experience includes facilities involving prototypes, historic preservation, high-rise, and LEED considerations.

Our team appreciates that prototypes are a starting point for each client’s vision and journey. They are effective; however more often than not require adaptations by our team to suit each client’s project specific key performance criteria. KLH would be happy to meet with you to assist in beginning your journey of bringing these special places to fruition. Whether the key criteria is energy efficiency, economy of utilities, custom lighting, fire safety, reducing water usage, improving air quality, photovoltaic systems or any other strategy; we truly look forward to serving you.

Hotels

Hotels

When designing systems for hotels key elements to consider include energy, understanding the client’s plans for the future of the facility, budget, and schedule. Highly efficient HVAC systems, lighting, and energy management systems all play a role in the energy concerns of hotel facilities. These concerns affect operating costs and client satisfaction. Specifications for products included in designs may vary according to the geographical location of the facility or the market it serves. Our experienced engineers walk the client through the process and considerations based on their corporate direction and goals.

Hospitality facilities often involve fast track design adaptations of prototypical reproductions. Throughout design KLH staff maintains an aesthetic eye – coordinating device placement for consistent, pleasant, hospitable rooms. As KLH is registered and works in all 50 states, our engineers and designers are experienced in working with local codes for each unique project for a seamless integrated approach.

Restaurants

Restaurants

Restaurant facility design involves many factors.  The aesthetic eye is critical – device and equipment placement must work with overall design goals.  The space must accommodate different moods using lighting and controls.  A space may need to consider ambient lighting versus mood lighting versus intimate lighting or breakfast lighting.  A high end establishment may be chef-driven, affecting the interior environment desired.  The experienced engineers at KLH are well-versed in managing the high level of coordination relevant to kitchen/food service equipment and the required utilities such as gas, electric, or other unique cooking techniques.  They have demonstrated the ability to work with a chef and his team to facilitate their needs.  Their facility expertise ranges from fast food to deluxe, and have the skills to reproduce a prototype quickly considering schedules and budgets.

 Convention Centers

Convention Centers

Engineering and design of convention spaces requires a necessary understanding of the desired uses for the spaces. For example, a facility’s grand ballroom could potentially be divided eight different ways and the systems (mechanical, electrical, and technology) needs to support each space. These facilities can involve complex lighting controls, as well as a higher level of coordination with technology that might include ceiling projectors, motorized screens, rigging points, and temporary power. The needs of exhibitors’ access to the systems must be provided while maintaining a pleasant environment for visitors. KLH engineers and designers approach their work with an aesthetic eye and a distinct understanding for user interfaces that are necessary for convention spaces both large and small.
