Project Description:

Fairfield Inn, Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Hall & Hall Engineers teamed with MidAm Construction to design and oversee construction of a new 65 unit Fairfield Inn & Suites. The site is located within a fully developed commercial district off of 6th Street SW and was slated for redevelopment.

Hall & Hall led the charge from initial site design through construction administration. The site topography was a challenge as site grading required the implementation of a 10 foot tall retaining wall system for the foundation of the hotel. Underground detention was necessary due to the limitations of the site. A terraced approach to the parking lot included the incorporation of 3 elongated islands that would capture surface runoff across the entire lot.
