Engineering challenges

The primary challenge of the project was marrying the requirements from the two brands of hotels that occupy the facility. The project comprises a full-service hotel on one side and an extended-stay hotel on the other, joined together by a common parking deck.  


The engineering team at Jordan and Skala met regularly with representatives from both brands to ensure that the systems being designed met the needs of both—not too much for the extended stay hotel while not diminishing the full-service hotel.
