The Epiphany

The existing building was completely refurbished into a 57,000 sf hotel with lobby, work lounge, restaurant, bar, and 86 luxurious hotel rooms and suites. Providing design-build and value engineering services, Build Group supplied invaluable assistance in the constructability of the remodel and helped to optimize the project.

The existing concrete structure originally built in the 1970’s had an unusual Post Tensioned (PT) mat slab requiring special care and sequencing procedures during the seismic retrofit. The team retrofitted the structure by installing a series of reinforced concrete walls, collector beams, and carbon fiber.
