Why Steel

Hotels & Hospitality

From low-rise suburban facilities to flagship downtown high-rises, structural steel can help  hotels get the most out of their space

A structural steel framing system offers many significant benefits to  hotel and motel projects, including:

  • Low floor-to-floor heights using steel framing elements and thin-floor systems that result in maximized floor-to-ceiling heights for larger spaces,  reduced overall  heights or even more floors without increasing the overall building height
  • Flexible spaces thanks to long  column-free areas--ideal for areas like ballrooms, which need to grow or shrink depending on the event
  • Adaptability, as a steel framing system is simpler to expand or remodel
  • Enhanced framing quality through the use of  a long-lasting, durable, high-quality material fabricated off-site to tight tolerances
  • Reduced  foundation loads, column footprints and overall project costs thanks to steel's lightweight properties
  • Earlier building occupancy thanks to quick erection, which reduces overall on-site construction, labor, and associated time and costs

Hotel chains can easily adapt and improve their prototypical floor layouts using steel.  Explore the following framing concepts to find the best solution for your next hospitality project.
