Woburn, MA – Callahan Construction Managers announced the completion of its work on the new dual-branded Hampton Inn & Homewood Suites Hotel which opened in late September 2019.
The new six-story, 147,780sf building and mixed-use hotel property boasts 235 total rooms, with 132 Hampton rooms and 103 Homewood suites. The property has incorporated numerous contemporary amenities for guests, including an indoor swimming pool and business and fitness center, along with terraces, bars, lobbies, and kitchens designated for each hotel brand.
“The new Hampton Inn & Homewood Suites Hotel offers guests all the comforts of home in a beautiful, modern building,” said Harry Wheeler, principal at Group One Architects. “Our collaboration with Callahan early in the design process was crucial, as we were required to work around various environmental concerns.”
The hotel is part of the Woburn Landing redevelopment project, which was built on previously contaminated land and required special permitting.
Callahan held numerous meetings with the Environmental Protection Agency and other environmental groups during the construction process to ensure stringent guidelines were addressed. Requirements were met by preserving and maintaining access to monitoring wells on the property. The hotel was equipped with special ventilation and a vapor barrier system to prevent future contamination.
“When we started this project, our goal was to build a quality hotel with careful consideration for environmental factors. We’re proud to say we’ve turned that objective into a reality,” said Steve Callahan, VP of business development at Callahan. “This project required extensive planning given the unique environmental permitting standards. I am proud of how our team worked diligently with the EPA, Group One, Concord Madison Woburn, LLC, and Concord Hospitality to develop innovative and creative solutions to all obstacles faced.”
The property is conveniently located to I-95 and I-93, just minutes from the Woburn Mall and Cummings Business Park. Guests also have nearby access to the Mishawum MBTA subway system, allowing easy transportation to Boston.
