Stahl Sheaffer is part of a design team led by the architectural firm Baskervill, from Richmond, Virginia. Stahl Sheaffer is providing structural engineering services for the design and construction of a four story, 68,000 sf Courtyard by Marriott hotel. The project is located in Hershey, PA and has a construction cost of $9 million.
To minimize the overall footprint of the structure, 6” load bearing steel studs and precast hollow core floor and roof planks were designed and detailed. The lateral resisting system consisted of diagonal strap bracing over the 6” steel stud shear walls. A central elevator shaft and two end stair towers were also detailed using steel stud framing.
Stahl Sheaffer also provided construction administration services for this project. This is the first of two hotel projects to be completed in partnership with Baskervill Architects.
