Renovations at the Hilton Palacio del Rio


In 2011 Petrus Interior Systems was contracted to replace 485 refinished entry doors and hardware at the historic Palacio Del Rio hotel in downtown San Antonio on the Riverwalk, well over 1000 doors total.

This work was part of a $34 Million renovation by Zachry Construction. The first phase consisted of the complete demolition and remodel of all 485 Guestrooms.

You can read more about the project in an article at the Hilton Hotels website.

Borglum Studio Renovation

Borglum Studio door

The City of San Antonio wanted to remodel and start using this historical building for various functions, but had a problem. Both sets of the huge double doors (8′ wide x 12′ high x 3″ thick) on the East and West sides opened into the building and the City’s fire codes require that they open out for fire escape.

We were asked to remove the door frames, doors & trim and re-install them so that they would swing out. Since the stone blocks that make up the exterior wall were 24″ wide we had to custom build a 12” wide door jamb to cover the raw stone on the inside of the building and faux paint it to match.

Gutzon Borglum was a sculptor and designed Mt. Rushmore from this building. Read more about this building and its history in this article at uiw.edu. Also, more details on the renovation can be found in this recent Express-News article.
