Their challenge

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.
