For our daunting 224 room and corridor renovation project here at Marriott South Beach, we knew efficiency was critical, and adhering to budget was a mandate. Under severely tight time restrictions, SPACiO not only rose to the challenge, they surpassed every expectation. They complete this immense task ahead of schedule and under budget – and their quality of work was indeed superior.

Vice President, Key International

The SPACiO team delivered as advertised – their adept handing of all pre-construction needs was impressive. They professionally coordinated the array of entities involved in this major project in a manner that impacted the hotel operations as minimally as possible. This invaluable service, along with their stellar work, simply reinforced the reputation they’ve built in this industry.
