Thompson Hotel Savannah
Savannah, GA | Hospitality
An emerging luxury-brand Hyatt hotel, Thompson Hotel is located in the upscale Eastern Wharf area along the Savannah River. The design of this13-story hotel accurately reflects the elegant architecture of the city. The original design called for brick, limestone, metal, and plaster…and also called for continuous insulation and air barriers to achieve greater energy efficiency. Though brick was the desired look, its weight was a concern, and it wouldn't fulfill the need for CI. By using EIFS, design requirements were met and the owners received a single-sourced system, while achieving the desired finish in a lightweight assembly. This project is an outstanding example of how EIFS can be used to create desired design results on landmark projects in historic cities.
