The developer of a luxury hotel in downtown Jackson is suing the hotel’s designer, alleging, among other things, that the walls of the hotel are insufficient to attenuate sound.

CCC Center Street, a Jackson company, is seeking at least $150,000 from IBI Group, a California company, for what it called errors and omissions in the design of The Cloudveil hotel.

The Cloudveil, located on Jackson’s Center Street less than a block from Jackson Town Square, is an upscale hotel with nightly rates for this weekend ranging from $479 per night for a double-queen room. at $949 per night for one bedroom. after. It is part of Marriott’s “autograph collection”.

The hotel opened in May 2021 and was featured in a Forbes Travel Guide article that described it as “a gateway to national parks.”

The lawsuit filed Thursday in U.S. District Court accused IBI of errors and omissions in the design of the hotel, including errors in the color of the awning roof and the backup generator and power system. hotel exhaust.

The lawsuit said CCC notified IBI of the issues in March 2021 and demanded reimbursement of damages, but IBI did not respond.

In December 2021, CCC said it informed IBI that the walls of the hotel did not attenuate noise as much as CCC had intended.

“The interior wall assemblies do not meet the applicable performance for sound transmission due to IBI’s inability to coordinate the design of (the hotel) between its subcontractors and other parties providing design services “, did he declare.

The lawsuit seeks damages of more than $75,000 for breach of contract and $75,000 for negligence, although the exact amount of damages is expected to be determined at trial.
