Benefits of Steel Framing For Hotel Construction


Easy and Fast to Install

Steel has a high strength-to-weight ratio, reducing hotel construction timelines.


Engineering Support

iSPAN’s hotel construction team works with you at every step, from pricing to design to installation.


Manufactured in Offsite Facility

Most of the steel fabrication takes place in a quality-controlled facility, reducing weather dependency and onsite construction storage.


Highly Durable and Resistant to Damage

Steel resists warping, cracking, moisture and insects, while offering a one-hour fire rating (UL, ULC Rated).


Excellent Acoustics

iSPAN’s Composite TotalJoist uses concrete poured on dovetail-shaped steel decking to reduce noise and vibrations from hotel guests.


Better Use of Space

Our proprietary joists come with stamped service holes for utilities to run through, reducing bulkheads and increasing space for hotel rooms and conference rooms.
