Optum Construction was selected to work with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide’s designers and construction department in the development of this fitness facility that became a prototype for all the Westin Health Clubs nationwide. Optum was able to take the advanced and complicated design of these visionaries and make it functional against the obstacles of a realistic application. These obstacles included installation of state-of-the-art equipment in ways that had never been attempted before on a Starwood project. Optum was able to expedite an already pressed schedule to allow the C.E.O. of Starwood Hotels to film a segment for the Travel Channel in the health club on opening day.
