Their challenge

Standing at an impressive 1,389 feet, the Trump International Hotel & Tower is among the tallest buildings in the United States and across the world. The skyscraper sits alongside the Chicago River and Michigan Avenue and comprises 98 floors of guest rooms, penthouses, and hotel and residential condominiums, as well as a world-class spa, restaurants, and boutique shopping. The Salas O’Brien team was brought on board for this expansive project to deliver mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design and construction administration services. Engaged well after the project’s commencement, our engineers were tasked with ambitious deliverables and a tight timeline.
