Project Description

Project: Holiday Inn
Use: Hotel
Location: Federal Way, WA

Structural Services: This landmark structure, constructed in 1997, is known as the first ever to utilize cold-formed steel as the complete load-bearing system for an 8-story building, as noted by the American Iron and Steel Institute. This building was cost evaluated as a concrete structure, a red iron structure, and finally a cold-formed steel framed structure. The most cost-effective solution, as concluded by the owners’ contractor, was the cold-formed steel scenario. The hotel is supported at the foundation with a mat slab.
