Our History

Under promising and overperforming–this has been Case & Associates’ motto since the beginning. The company continues to stand not only behind its work but also its word. Building relationships based on trust and transparency has been a cornerstone of the company’s culture for 30 years; it has allowed for the growth of long-term client relationships and exceptional project results to this day and for more to come.
Case & Associates was founded by Allen Case in 1988 with a vision of building a successful hospitality construction company. After four years of working in the hospitality construction industry, Case & Associates was awarded a contract for the public space renovation of the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans. This project put the company on the map, which would soon lead to its national notoriety. At that time, Gary Connolly was brought to help with the success of the project. Shortly after, Allen and Gary became partners at Case & Associates incorporated.
The 1990s proved to be a burgeoning time of growth for Case & Associates. Project demand was high, and internal company growth was essential. Projects such as The Houstonian Hotel and La Quinta’s Gold Medal Room Program significantly contributed to their success. In 1997, Case & Associates was placed on Inc. Magazine’s list of 500 fastest-growing private companies in America. Only a year later, ten years after the company’s beginning, Case & Associates was known as one of the leading hotel renovation companies in the country, with $20 million revenue to boot.
Since that time, Case & Associates has had the privilege of working with exceptional clientele on many different projects. In 1999, the firm renovated the St. Regis Aspen Resort in Colorado and Houston’s St. Regis Hotel in 2012. Case & Associates traveled to Scottsdale, AZ, in 2008 to renovate J&G Steakhouse, a part of the luxurious Phoenician Resort. Starting in 2000 and throughout the next four years, the company renovated the guest rooms, lobby and public spaces, restaurants, spa, and a wedding store of The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, Na’anapali. In New Orleans, projects included the Sheraton, Le Meridian, Q&C Hotel/Bar, the W Hotel, and many phases of the Hilton Riverside. Case & Associates covered the state of Texas in 2011 with renovations of Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites in Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Richardson, Arlington, Las Colinas, Plano, and Dallas.
