Gisa Ott, CCI LLC

We were working with wall and floor tile products from Landmark Ceramics, Atlas Concorde, Cesar, Ceramic Technics and Daltile. Massive, gauged porcelain panels from StonePeak were specified, as well. Because these were all great products, we needed one great installation system from one company. As it turned out, going with Bostik might be one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made!”

A complete installation system for specialized tile products

The DoubleTree Lafayette East in Lafayette, Indiana is a popular hotel. The location, a hour drive from the Indianapolis Airport, is adjacent to major corporate offices, and minutes from downtown Lafayette and Purdue University. Featuring 128 state-of-the-art guestrooms, great dining, and expansive meeting rooms, the hotel is a busy destination for a variety of travelers. The DoubleTree recently went through a major architectural design conversion, the results of which have added even more to its allure.

A challenging project

“This was a really challenging project,” declared Gisa Ott, relative to the large amount of tile installed at the DoubleTree. Ott is the Vice President of Sales and Management of Indianapolis-based CCI LLC, who served as overall project manager. “Architectural designs created by SRA Architects of Milford, Ohio were outstanding. The interior design treatments by Adrian Caradine Contract Design of Memphis, Tennessee perfectly complemented every room throughout the hotel. We knew this was a very special endeavor,” stated Ott.

“There were so many different tile products specified, just about all of them came from Miles Distributors, our longtime supplier. To select the best installation system for each of these tiles was daunting. Because we always want to do what’s right for our clientele, I listened to every sales pitch from every rep from every company. One representative, Adam Abell of Bostik came in, took his time, and professionally explained to me exactly why it made sense to have one source, one full system for the installation of all hard surface products specified for the DoubleTree.” 

“We were working with wall and floor tile from Landmark Ceramics, Atlas Concorde, Cesar, Ceramic Technics and Daltile. Massive, gauged porcelain panels from StonePeak were specified, as well,” Ott stated. “These are all great products; we needed a great installation system from one company. Adam convinced us to go with Bostik and as it turns out, this might be one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made,” Ott exclaimed.
