This Holiday Inn Brand property is a 127-guestroom, 6-storey hotel with a restaurant and a 2-storey conference area located in Edmonton’s Ellerslie Community.
The first floor is comprised of structural steel to provide the large open spaces needed for the lobby of hotel and the rest of the hotel incorporated our TotalFraming system. We worked closely with the client to help them achieve the look they wanted with unique overhangs and parapet shapes to support their signature branding. The structure needed supplementary shear walls and we provided those in the form of rod-braced shear walls.
The hotel was constructed during the winter months which can present construction challenges. We worked with a new installer on this building and after providing detailed guidance and training on the first floor installation, the rest of the floors went up quickly.
Once the pre-sheathed walls and Composite TotalJoist were installed and the concrete was poured to create the floors, the space was able to be heated right away to allow for follow-on trades to start their work in a fully enclosed space.
