New Hampshire-based hotel owner/operators, Roedel Companies, have selected the architectural and design teams required to complete the multi-million dollar renovation of the Hotel Saranac in Saranac Lake, New York. Built over 80 years ago, Roedel Companies is restoring the Hotel Saranac to its historic grandeur and repositioning the property to meet the needs of today’s travelers. The Hotel will remain closed during construction and reopen in 2015.
ROK Builders, the hotel construction affiliate of Roedel Companies, is overseeing the renovations and Freeman French Freeman, Inc. is the lead architect on the project. The organizations will work in tandem with their historical consultant, Kimberly Alvarez of Landmark Consulting in Albany, NY, to bring the property up to modern standards while preserving the layout and character of the building.
Other companies partnered with the project include:
• Group One Partners, Inc.—hotel programming
• North Woods Engineering—structural engineer
• North Country Construction Services—site superintendent
• Rist-Frost Shumway—mechanical, electrical and plumbing
• RSJ Associates—interior design and procurement services
“Using our extensive experience in the industry, we were able to put together an experienced team of professionals and maximize every dollar invested in this project,” stated Fred B. Roedel III, Partner of Roedel Companies and President of ROK Builders. “When the Hotel Saranac reopens, it will be an upscale and full service hotel that will once again serve as a center of community life for residents and guests.”
“We couldn’t be more excited about helping to restore this jewel of the Adirondacks,” said Jesse Beck, President of Freeman French Freeman, Inc. “The combination of Roedel Companies’ vision and the local community’s support makes this a very special project for everyone involved.”
