Project Description

Marriott’s four-star City Center Hotel is located in the heart of Salt Lake City’s business and cultural district. The hotel features 359 rooms, including 17 suites, two dedicated, private concierge floors, 15,000 square feet of conference space, and three levels of underground parking.

The twelve-story luxury hotel’s amenities include an indoor swimming pool, fitness club, gift shop, and full-service restaurant. Marriott’s priority is the business traveler, so 202 guest rooms are specifically designed to meet this priority. All meeting rooms are equipped with the latest interactive conference service technology, featuring conference call phone lines and high-speed internet access.

Big-D used tunnel-forming construction, a time-saving concrete forming system that allows for slabs and walls to be poured simultaneously, for levels above the sub-grade parking and meeting rooms. Tunnel-forming construction is most commonly used at ground level, but we used this method beginning at the fifth supported level, more than 70 feet above the ground. This construction sequence enabled Big-D to reduce costs and expedite construction. We also installed large concrete beams that resist the over-turning moment during an earthquake.
