AUSTIN - With just 15 employees when The Cadence Group formed in Dallas, TX in 1985, the company now known as Cadence McShane Construction Company has grown to over 200 employees in offices in Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio.





    Specializing in education, multi-family, senior living, commercial and industrial work, Cadence McShane has earned a reputation as a highly-experienced provider of general construction, design-build and construction management services, deploying a culture of relentless service with an entrepreneurial spirit that originates from inside every Cadence McShane employee.  This spirit helps the Cadence McShane team to constantly deliver reliable results of excellence.
    Cadence McShane Construction Company recently completed the new four-story Best Western Dual Brand Hotel located in Austin, Texas. The 52,706sf hotel
includes 86-rooms with a business center, two meeting rooms and a dining room.
    The interior of Best Western consists of drywall with paint and includes wallcovering finishes. The exterior was primarily stick framed with CMU shafts and structural steel for the first floor with EIFS on the remaining three stories.
    When faced with challenges during the construction of the hotel, Cadence McShane was not able to reference what had been done at other locations because this Best Western project was a prototype hotel for the brand. The project team had to use their best judgment to find solutions to issues that were satisfactory to Owner, 28 Hospitality LLC. The project team ensured that they would adhere to the hybrid standards set by the brand for this prototype without impacting the overall project.
    Being one of the first dual brand product types, this project is unique in featuring Executive Residency and Best Western Plus rooms.
    Senior Project Manager Bob Zellner, Assistant Project Manager Ben Pritchard, Superintendent Eric Nagy oversaw the construction of the Best Western Dual Brand Hotel. Together, they ensured 28 Hospitality LLC’s and Architect Ron Pope, TAG International LLP’s vision and design were masterfully built.
    “The relationship we had with the Owner was unlike any other I had encountered; it was truly a family business. They worked side-by-side with us in order to have a successful project. This project meant as much to us as it did to the Owner,” said Cadence McShane Assistant Project Manager Ben Pritchard.
    Cadence McShane Construction Company is a full-service general contractor. -cmw
