AKT Peerless was involved in the early stages of the Universal Studios theme park development, providing construction analysis and construction monitoring for four project amenities:
- The Hard Rock Hotel
- The Portofino Bay Hotel
- The Royal Pacific Resort
- The Common Support Facility
The hotel projects were constructed between 1999 and 2003 and contain over 2,400 guestrooms, along with numerous restaurants, recreation areas and landscaped gardens. The common support facility includes laundry operations, storage and administrative functions that service the hotels, theme parks and other attractions at the Universal Studios parks and hotels.
AKT Peerless worked as a direct consultant to Chase Manhattan Bank on these projects, which contributed nearly 250 million dollars in loan proceeds to finance construction.
