A fresh, creative approach to value engineering and construction cost control was required to make the ambitious renovation of the historic Westin Book Cadillac Hotel a reality. We were selected for our expertise in fire protection solutions.
Westin Hotels & Resorts remodeled a historic Detroit landmark into the 455-room Westin Book Cadillac Hotel with eight floors of condominiums, numerous ballrooms, meeting rooms, restaurants, and a fitness center. They needed top-notch fire protection systems to safeguard their total building investment.
Shambaugh designed, fabricated, and installed complete fire protection including:
- 37 wet automatic sprinkler systems
- Dry pipe sprinkler system
- Multiple-zone standpipe system
- 6,000 sprinkler heads
- Nine miles of sprinkler pipe
- Electric fire pump (1,500 gpm)
The Westin Book Cadillac Hotel is a multi-award-winning project, including the state of Michigan’s Governor’s Award for Historic Preservation and the Aon Build America Award in the Building Renovation category.
