This 450-room luxury hotel was designed on a fast-track schedule. It consists of a 15-story, 109,000 sf tower and an 18-story, 145,000 sf tower. Precast floor slabs were placed after the steel framing for each floor was erected, providing a working platform and storage space for future non-structural items. This procedure allowed construction to continue year-round, rather than experiencing standard winter shutdown.
