Home2 Suites by Hilton

HotelPearl, MS

CMU and Cold-formed Steel Hotel

Home2 Suites by Hilton is a more affordable, all-suite extended-stay hotel featuring contemporary accommodations and customizable guest room design.

This Home2 Suites project is a 5 storey building, built with non-composite iSPAN 9.5” joist with 9/16” 22ga metal deck, and gypcrete on top of a first storey CMU wall system.

The project was started in 2014, but was shut down due to a civil engineering issue. For several years, dirt was moved to improve the site, and in 2018 a 3” topping slab was added to the existing slab to raise the building and continue the project.

The original design was for a CMU building. The decision was made to leave the first floor as CMU and switch to steel on the 2nd through 5th floors.

The speed and flexibility of the iSPAN system allowed for the project to resume and complete on a very tight timeline in spite of the challenges .
