Marriott Gateway Hotel and Conference Center
The Salas O’Brien commissioning team helped Marriott achieve a LEED Silver certification for its Marriott Gateway hotel adjacent to the international airport in Atlanta, Georgia. Our work included fundamental and enhanced commissioning and energy modeling services.
Marriott International is one of America’s premier international hospitality companies, with over 6,500 properties spread across the country and around the world. Excellence, innovation, and integrity are just a few of the core values that unite Marriott’s many iconic brands, and these priorities have earned the company financial success and an exceptional reputation. Marriott’s focus on the business traveler goes back almost as far as the company’s entrance into the lodging business. The company pioneered extended-stay business accommodation, and one of its first distinct brands specifically catered to business travelers.
The Marriott Gateway Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia, is a contemporary example of the company’s drive to provide convenient, luxurious accommodation for modern business travelers. This expansive hotel is situated directly adjacent to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport—the busiest airport hub in the United States. With easy access to the airport’s SkyTrain and the Georgia International Convention Center, Marriott Gateway is an ideal rendezvous for corporate meetings and conferences. The hotel’s over 22,000 square feet of meeting space, multiple dining facilities, large ballroom, and open event venues easily scale to meet the needs of any size group, and with more than 400 guest rooms and suites, a fitness center, and a salt water pool, guests can complement work with relaxation. Marriott needed a trustworthy engineering partner to support the success of this key hotel.
Salas O’Brien provided LEED mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems commissioning, smoke evacuation system validation, and energy modeling services for this seven-story, 310,000-square-foot project.
The finished hotel’s systems demonstrate Marriott’s vision for sustainability and save the building owners energy and maintenance costs every year. With Salas O’Brien’s help, the project also achieved LEED Silver Certification.
