Texas Design Interests, LLC has performed structural engineering designs on numerous multi-story hotel projects throughout Texas. Construction materials have included steel, concrete, ICF, light-gauge, and wood framing. Every building is evaluated for the most effective design solution to meet the client’s budget, needs, and overall time constraint.
This six-story hotel, located along the President George Bush Highway in Garland, includes a 12,000 square foot conference center and 153 guest rooms. The design features a six-story tall glass curtain-wall system, prominently positioned above the main entry; and utilizes an ICF (insulated concrete form) building system as the exterior bearing walls of the structure. Chosen for its energy efficiency and structural robust reinforced concrete wall, ICF walls have the added benefit of reducing construction costs through its ease of installation and reduced construction waste.
