The structural system from both the parking deck and hotel structure consists of post tensioned cast in place concrete slabs supported by cast in place columns and walls, which are all supported precast concrete piles. The tight site constraints resulted in a complex geometric interaction between the parking deck and the building. Additionally, the pool and outdoor plaza area are constructed on the 2nd floor of the post tensioned slab.
Britt Peters provided the structural engineering on this new, 5-story hotel in downtown Charleston. The new building will be 5 story, 93,439 SF total footprint with 139 guest rooms with a brick and cast stone veneer. The project also includes a 3 story parking deck with a semicircular ramp between levels.
