The project consisted of the demolition of an existing Firestone tire building that had a concrete slab foundation/basement to build a new 6-story hotel with 105 guest rooms. The hotel features two elevators, laundry chute, fitness center, commercial kitchen, bar & lounge and future rooftop bar space.
The building structure uses concrete foundations, columns, slab-on-grade, post-tension concrete decks, metal stud and wood framing. Exterior finishes include two different colors of brick, fiber cement, metal paneling, vinyl windows and architectural louvers.
Among the challenges were highly-sequenced existing building demolition, shoring and basement concrete. We were able to modify the initial demo plan to demolish large portions of the ground level deck and install shoring to support the existing basement walls, resulting in significant reductions in the amount of cutting, improving safety, and reducing the time and cost for the demolition. Covid-19 meant reduced crew sizes and significant material delays, but we were able to achieve substantial completion on schedule.
