Beach Terrace Inn
Salas O’Brien provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services for renovations and refurbishment at Beach Terrace Inn, a one-of-a-kind vacation getaway in coastal Carlsbad, California.
Privately owned and family operated, Beach Terrace Inn is the only hotel on exclusive beach-front property in coastal Carlsbad, California—a popular Southern California vacation destination. The resort’s main 1960s structure was originally an apartment building, not a hotel, but today its spacious rooms and layered floor plan add to the hotel’s unique charm. With its luxurious rooms, private beach, and ocean-view terrace pool, the inn is the perfect resort getaway for an intimate beach wedding, a relaxing corporate retreat, or a fun-packed family holiday.
Beach Terrace Inn needed an engineering firm that could provide efficient renovation and refurbishment to the buildings’ existing mechanical, electrical, and mechanical systems. The project also involved a reconfiguration and expansion of the hotel’s lobby and an evaluation of the inn’s power distribution.
The Salas O’Brien team provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering design services to complement the inn’s renovation and refurbishment. In line with the inn’s plan for the space, we reconfigured and expanded the hotel lobby, evaluated power distribution, and replaced existing exhaust, plumbing, and lighting fixtures.
The finished hotel’s 48 refurbished rooms feature excellent design with enlarged bathrooms and new walk-in showers. These changes along with the expanded hotel lobby contribute to an enhanced guest experience and added value for the owners.
