The President of the United States wanted to feel homier in his permanent office at the White House. Since Donald Trump has been spending most of his life in luxurious hotel rooms, the renovations had to look accordingly. Therefore, the redesign project consisted of new wallpaper, carpet, and two giant eagles. On top of that, the rooms received much-needed updates, such as a new HVAC system to offer the West Wing cool air.
The Latest Renovation of the West Wing Delivered Long Overdue Room Upgrades as Well
The latest White House renovation lasted for a total of three weeks, just enough to apply a $3 million worth redesign and upgrade plan. Around 200 employees were involved in the successful outcome of the project. Reporters received a private tour of a part of the renovations, including the VIP lobby in the West Wing, the South Portico, and the Roosevelt Room on Wednesday.
The head of the GSA’s White House Service Center, Alan Zawatsky, is the official responsible for construction and cleaning operations of the West Wing/ EEOB and other establishments that pertain to the President’s Executive Office. Zawatsky stated that the building is old and therefore it is always in need of repairs. Nonetheless, the official believes that the latest project managed to take care of ardent issues.
The Redesign Project Enjoyed the Collaboration of Native American Firms Only
The President was on vacation for the duration of White House’s major renovation. However, Donald Trump was still able to choose the wallpaper for the Oval Office personally. The pattern has symbolic designs of roses. The flower is reminiscent of the famous garden in front of the Oval Office windows as well as the features of the executive mansion.
Each detail was carefully ordered to highlight the cultural background of the governmental administration. For instance, organizers arranged for new furnishings only in partnerships with Native American companies. On top of that, there were several businesses led by women that participated in this project.
