AC Hotel Charlotte
Charlotte, NC | Hospitality
The design team for this project selected EIFS for its seamless integration of continuous heat, air, and moisture, as well as its aesthetic versatility. To reduce cost, the brick section of the building was designed with traditional brick on the ground floor and EIFS from floors 3 through 10, which cost 60-70% less than traditional brick, and was installed in about half the time. The project uses EIFS very strategically, really showcasing the strength of EIFS. From a design standpoint, EIFS worked sympathetically with all the glass, and detailing-wise, achieved a great amount.
