Their challenge

Salas O’Brien’s work was part of a larger, $80 million project which converted the former Hilliard Lyons Center building into a mixed-use project anchored by the Embassy Suites. This ambitious project was not the building’s first repurposing; the structure was constructed in 1907 and originally housed the Stewart’s Dry Goods Company. Today Eric Bachelor owns the building, and it is listed as a landmark on the National Register of Historic Places.

Our solution

Our team provided mechanical and plumbing engineering services for the 304-suite hotel. Our engineers also took special care to accommodate the building’s historic features in our design.
