First Finish Completes Renovations of Aspen's Little Nell Ski Resort & Hotel

Major Renovation Project Completed in Just 12 Weeks

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) -  Talk about "On Time and On Budget" -- an industry phrase that is used much too often; however, First Finish, a Columbia, MD-based general contracting firm, can certainly back this up with its recently completed, $20 million renovations to The Little Nell -- a 5 star, 5 diamond ski resort and hotel project located in Aspen, Colorado.

Completing the project in just 12 weeks, First Finish was selected because they could guarantee that The Little Nell would be 100% operational at the launch of a very busy ski season -- the ultimate goal for its owner/operator, The Aspen Skiing Company.

Celebrating its 20th year, the hotel is undergoing its most comprehensive renovation since its grand opening in 1989. First Finish tapped into local resources and hired many Aspen area companies to provide services as well as bringing in a team of over 150 highly-skilled subcontractors from DC, VA & MD as well as locally based firms.

Design services for the 95,000 SF renovations were provided by internationally-known residential designer Holly Hunt. The Architect of Record was Rowland + Broughton Architecture and Urban Design. The project includes 92 guestrooms and suites that integrate more than 30 various floor plan layouts.

Each guest room and corridor was updated with custom American black walnut millwork, ornamental metals, and Spanish marble tile that was personally hand-picked from Spain, where the First Finish team traveled to ensure the quality of the stone. Smart room technology panels were installed in each guest room to control temperature, lighting, TV and music volume levels wirelessly.

As part of First Finish's ongoing efforts to provide more environmentally-friendly jobsites and projects, each previous door of the resort was converted into mulch and all existing furniture donated to a local Habitat for Humanity chapter.

Based in Columbia, MD, First Finish provides premier construction services for a full range of market segments including: commercial, government and those specific to the hotel & lodging industry. First Finish manages every aspect of a project from planning, construction, finishing, to installing FF&E. First Finish is a proud member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
