In the midst of downtown Salt Lake City, the Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City adjoin the Salt Palace Convention Center. The 26-story building houses 700 hotel rooms, meeting spaces, ballrooms, dining venues, bars, a rooftop terrace and more. Each guest room is designed with floor-to-ceiling windows to showcase a beautiful view of the city’s skyline.
The hotel is within walking distance to the city’s vibrant Main Street, Temple Square, Capitol Theatre, City Creek Center, Vivint Arena and many more attractions.
During the design phase, the project team needed an exterior cladding solution that could accommodate a fast-paced construction schedule, requiring material with a simple, fast installation. In addition, the team sought material that would seamlessly integrate with the glass curtainwall design, the facade’s defining feature.
Designers chose CENTRIA IMPs to meet the multiple demands.
Hotel developers were looking for an external cladding product that could keep up with the speed of the anticipated build and the circumstances presented by the urban location.
“There was a lot less lay down area for materials on the jobsite, so using products that could be delivered on time and installed quickly was pivotal,” said Steven Huck, District Sales Manager for CENTRIA.”
Crews installed CENTRIA’s Formawall Dimension Series in Silversmith on the exterior of the hotel. Formawall allows for design freedom without compromising thermal performance. The building envelope system consolidates six wall components into one, ultimately reducing waste and simplifying installation.
In addition, Formawall panels were able to integrate seamlessly with the glass curtainwall to deliver a modern, sophisticated look for the center-city setting with a front-row seat to Salt Lake City’s skyline.
“Choosing CENTRIA had a lot to do with the panel’s ability to integrate seamlessly with the glass curtainwall,” said Huck. “Given the height of the building, we were able to cut back on labor resources by only having to go around the building one time, with one product.”
Where the convention center hotel attached to the main building, designers chose selected CENTRIA’s Versawall V panels in Silversmith for installation. Versawall delivers the industry’s best combination of aesthetics, performance, sustainability, and value. A lightweight wall panel system, Versawall V provides flexibility with long lengths, various finish options, and can be vertically installed to add visual appeal.
