General Contractor: W.E. O’Neil Constrution
Connelly Electric partnered with Oxford Capital Group and W.E. O’Neil Construction to develop and construct London House, a 452 room luxury hotel located in the heart of historic Chicago. The original building, the London Guarantee and Accident building built in 1923, was designated a landmark in 1996. A modernist 22 story all glass tower addition was added to the original historic building, and serves as the main entrance to the hotel.
The overall building includes 25,000 square feet of conference and event space, and 21,000 square feet of future retail. One of the 3 lounges is the only tri-level rooftop venue that overlooks the Chicago River. Connelly Electric utilized BIM Coordination, Trimble Layout, and Prefabrication to facilitate the 2 year project.
