YWS was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Renovation and Restoration category for the Ogden House Renovation and El Cortez Cabana Suites. The 2009 Southwest Contractor Best Of Awards were held Thursday, December 17th at the Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel. 

The challenging scope included completely demolishing the interior of the 1977-vintage, 95-room, five-story CMU block Ogden House Hotel and transforming it into the stylish, EIFS-clad, 64-room El Cortez Cabana Suites all-suite hotel with high-end finishes.The interior features imported marble tile, designer light fixtures, white crocodile wall covering and crown moldings. The judges felt the high octane blue and white exterior and the lobby’s black and white checkerboard marble tile floor were very bold choices with high quality finish work. 

Project eligibility was limited to those that were completed between September 2008 and August 2009. Winning projects were chosen on how the following criteria related to the category in which the project was entered: teamwork and project management, safety, innovation, contribution to the community, overcoming challenges, construction workmanship and the functionality and aesthetic quality of the design.
