Description: A Direct Quote from Connie Jackson, Senior Designer, Wilson & Associates
“The AT&T Executive Conference Center at the University of Texas in Austin was a challenging job. Our task was to blend the history and artifacts from the school’s beginning to a state of the art conference center with the latest technology from AT&T on one of the largest school campus’s. The goal was to create a Texas inspired hotel using native materials. Being a LEED project, reusing trees cut down from site and creating the front desk of the hotel created a true craftsman experience. As a backdrop to the desk, the grand stair and the “seal” from the University, the Seamless Limestone specified by SPE was the perfect material. Hard troweled plaster finishes were used on both the first and second floor creating the Texan look Wilson desired.”
SPE installed over 72,000 square feet of Seamless Stone wall finishes which included ballrooms, hotel lobbies, elevator lobbies, sports cafe, conference rooms and private dining as well as numerous restaurants and public areas throughout the space.
