About Ben

Ben Wallace began his hospitality career in 2007 with InterMountain Management LLC as a Project Manager, overseeing new-build construction projects. In 2009, he joined the asset management team where he worked closely with operations to ensure property assets were maintained to the highest standards.

Ben is excited to announce the launch of his new company, River Ridge Renovations, LLC.

Ben and his team are applying his expertise to River Ridge Renovations LLC.

WHY RIVER RIDGE RENOVATIONS?

MAXIMIZE YOUR INVESTMENT

We will help negotiate your PIP/cyclical renovation with the brand to make sure that your capital dollars are being spent wisely and as needed. Approaching each project differently, we begin with a desktop estimate and then walk the property to confirm what is required.

EXPERIENCE MATTERS

While there may be many firms that understand the mechanics of property renovations and conversions, it is important to partner with a team who offers experience. River Ridge brings experience from branded and non-branded hotels.

THE EXTRA MILE

It is of utmost importance to our team to gain a true understanding of your specific needs, and we go the extra mile to ensure we meet them! We work on your timeline to deliver the best quality result at the most reasonable cost – on time!

Frequently Asked Questions

We are there every step of the way!

Why consider River Ridge for my renovation or conversion project?

River Ridge manages your project from beginning to end, working with contractors and vendors across the United States who are experienced in the hospitality arena. Together with property owners, we provide the expectations and timelines, and we work with people who can deliver. Our team can manage all or any part of your project.

Do you renovate non-branded hotels?

Yes, we renovate any hotel! Our most important job is to understand each individual owner’s needs, branded or non-branded. Brand experience does help us assist our owners in properly meeting the requirements of specific brands.

Is using a Construction Management company going to cost me more?

No. Our experience helps us schedule properly to minimize downtime of your guest rooms, and consultation regarding brand waivers often provides cost savings. Hiring River Ridge allows owners to focus their efforts elsewhere.
