Luxury with garden-style appeal

AUSTIN - The Hilton chain of hotels has introduced another luxury hotel to Austin, the Hilton Garden Inn, Austin Airport. Located just three miles from the airport and five miles from downtown Austin, this modern style hotel is a welcomed feature to the Texas hill country.





    Built on the philosophy of open communication and partnering with clients rather than being adversarial, McComb Construction Company Inc. was the perfect fit for the construction of the new 92,000sf facility. Construction was completed in 20 months at a cost of $13.8 million.
    Constructed of structural and light gauge steel with structural concrete at each floor, the 149-room hotel offers a full bar for its guests, banquet and kitchen facilities, business center, convenience shop, guest laundry facility, garden grille, fitness center, sparkling outdoor pool, patio and fire pit. 
    Hilton Garden Inn Austin Airport is not the typical prototype Hilton Garden Inn. The owner and architect added many custom features to make this the premier property to be near the airport.
    “When we broke ground at the beginning of 2016, it started raining and we didn’t think it would ever stop.  We had over 24 in. of rain in the first six months of the project. Just prior to breaking ground, we decided to completely redesign the foundation system from a drilled-pier, slab-on-grade to a driven steel pile, elevated structural steel slab. This required several months to re-engineer and resubmit to the City of Austin for re-review of our permit,” said Keith McComb, owner and president of McComb Construction.
    Keith McComb also acted as Sr. Project Manager alongside Project Manager Daniel Landeros. Together, they worked closely with JC Crowdus & Associates, the project’s architectural firm to overcome obstacles and maintain the luster of the project.
    McComb Construction Company Inc. was founded by Jim McComb in 1987 and recently purchased by son Keith McComb in 2017 after working along-side his father for 28 years. Together, the company has successfully built a reputation in the Austin area as one of the leading small general contractors in the Austin area with only eight employees.
