Carpenter

Posted November 30, 2018

Since opening its doors in 1912, The Adolphus has served as an icon of Dallas and an integral part of the City’s history and culture. Situated on the original site of City Hall, the hotel was modeled after a beaus arts German castle. In its recent restoration and renovation, the hotel’s storied past is both celebrated and reimagined. There is a sense of discovery at every turn.

Carpenter preforms skilled carpentry work in the construction, maintenance, repair and alteration of hotel structure following proper procedures and techniques of the trade and safety regulations.
