“When we completely redesigned and remodeled our 8,000square foot Hibiscus Golf Club in Naples, Florida, landing theGeneral Hotel and Restaurant Supply design team was a God sendfor us. They transformed our existing golf club constructed in1980 into a modern day wonder. We got everything we wantedand more. The design team was professional, knowledgeable, andhelpful. Most of all they gave us the quality in furnishings andequipment that we needed, while adhering to our budget andsaving us thousands of dollars. Thanks to the GHRS DesignTeam that worked so hard for us at Hibiscus Golf Club, we areproud of our new home, and would welcome the opportunity towork with the General Team again.” Allan Cooper, General Manager Hibiscus Golf Club
Remodel and redesign of new 728 room property on Miami Beach, Florida.ASSIGNMENT: Design new kitchens in multiple towers to accommodate guests in restaurants, banqueting and room service.GHRS LEADERSHIP: Plans were developed for permitting after months of work with property ownership and staff. Final MEPs were completed. At the last minute, GHRS was informed that the hotel needed to comply with new fire standards and a new 8 hallway had to be constructed through the existing kitchen design. We reconfigured the plan within three weeks for permitting to accommodate this last minute requirement. In effect, GHRS had to redraw the kitchen and provide revised MEPs for final permitting. This quick turnaround saved tens of thousands of dollars for property ownership in reduced construction costs.

General has made a commitment to the ever growing “Green” Design movement with a concerted effort to design within the parameters of LEED Design. LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design Rating System, is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
We have designed and supplied projects throughout the country, and the world, for years. We have a network of installers, service agents, manufacturers’ representatives and fabricators that we can access anywhere in the world. We welcome the opportunity to work with our customers, regardless of their geographic location.
