Aardex LLC is pioneering new territory in sustainability by delivering hotels that integrate the highest standards in “Green” design and construction in conjunction with sustainable hotel operations. Our promise of LEED for FREE assures our customers that our User Effective® building practices will now be complemented by User Effective day-to-day operations.
We work with the finest brands in the business including Marriott, Hyatt and Hilton; developing institutional grade product and marrying that with the nation’s top hotel operator, Rim Hospitality.
Celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2008, Aardex is proud of its unique vertically integrated development process where design, construction and property management interact daily to bring greater value at lower costs to our clients.
Now, Aardex and Rim Hospitality have developed a proprietary integrated delivery system to rate a hotel’s performance during the design phase. The system allows the team to measure the effectiveness of hotel operations and design choices on the asset’s long term financial performance and guest experience.
Integrating the daily facility operations with the original design concept and building systems allows the hotel to operate more efficiently than the investment grade hospitality properties found in the market today. The Aardex/RIM hotel delivery system focuses on:
