PWI Construction served as general contractor on the Andaz Scottsdale and provided the full range of pre-construction, construction and post-construction services through the life of the project. PWI Construction met with the owner and their representative weekly to review progress.
"At times, the pace of construction outpaced the design team," says project lead David Mueller, who was constantly looking for cost savings and added value. The bungalows were taken down to their shells and a slab, requiring a total renovation/rebuild of the guest rooms and bathrooms, and then new facilities were constructed on the 23-acre property.
"One of my favorite memories was the opening of the event center. We worked about 20 straight days, crazy hours, to get the event building done in time for an event they had already sold and planned. Right after we finished, I was up on an elevated patio next to the building and I looked down. There were a dad and his sons playing football on the lawn outside, using the space and enjoying it. Seeing that space we worked so hard on being enjoyed made it all worth it," Mueller adds.

Delawie Architects imagined the renovated resort as "desert modern" retreat, inspired by midcentury modern architecture. The guest rooms and suites were configured in clusters of casita-inspired bungalows.
EDG Design was inspired by the 1950s desert art scene influenced by architects, artists and graphic designers, including Alexander Girard, Frank Lloyd Wright and Paolo Solari. The rooms and grounds at the Andaz Scottsdale are a reflection of their creative spirit; color, line and form all commingle and work in harmony with the natural surroundings.
