C.W. Driver is proud to announce that the Laguna Cliffs Project was a success.

The project consisted of a multi-phased hotel renovation of 360 hotel rooms and public spaces. The project included a full renovation to the entire facility, including enhancements to the interior design, exterior structure and amenities of the resort.

Laguna Cliffs Resort & Spa recently unveiled completely refurbished guest rooms, 20,000 square feet of expanded indoor meeting and banquet facilities, a new porte cochère entrance and marble lobby with waterfall, a new pool and Splash Zone activity area for families and new, lush, eco-friendly landscaping including plants that are not only beautiful but also require little or no watering as well as a complete renovation to the VUE restaurant including the back of house kitchen.

C.W. Driver's project manager, Ryan Meagher, noted that completing the project, which occurred at an operating five-star hotel campus, came with many challenges. "As with many renovation projects, there were several unknowns that become uncovered during the construction process. Keeping on schedule while dealing with these changes in scope; along with maintaining an active resort with little impact to the guests' experience was a constant challenge. If not for an understanding hotel management staff and a great base of subcontractors, this project would not have been a successful reality."

C.W. Driver worked closely with design team members and several strong subcontractors to complete six phases of work to complete this project in just over one year.

C.W. Driver would like to especially thank Kollin Altomare Architects, interior designer Intra-Spec, landscape architect Wilson Associates, Orange County Fire Authority and the City of Dana Point Building Inspection Department for their participation in the tireless coordination and planning efforts to make this project happen. In addition, several quality subcontractors provided top-notch quality installations, such as Trademark Concrete Systems (site concrete), Montbleau & Associates (finish carpentry), Performance Contracting (steel studs and drywall), Don Brandel Plumbing (plumbing), Duray/Duncan Industries (food service equipment) and Aquatic Technologies (swimming pools), to name a few.
