Marriott Inner Harbor Hotel and Convention Center

Marriott Inner Harbor Hotel, Baltimore
Project Overview: 
McLaren was chosen to provide engineering services for the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor Hotel and Convention Center. The Hotel was designed and constructed in two separate phases. The original phase consisted of a 12-story hotel tower and a one-story steel frame low-rise that housed the convention facilities. The second phase consisted of another 12-story hotel tower and a two-story concrete frame low-rise that housed additional convention facilities in both phases.
McLaren's Role: 
Phase I required long clear spans to accommodate large meeting rooms and banquet facilities. Phase II required a framed ballroom floor, which necessitated heavy post-tensioned concrete beams and floor slabs to accommodate impact loads produced by ballroom activities (dancing). In addition, Phase II employed the use of post-tensioned concrete transfer girders, which clear spanned the ballroom and supported the hotel tower above. Hotel towers for both Phases were constructed from post-tensioned concrete flat plates supported on reinforced concrete columns and shear walls. The lower levels (street level) are reinforced concrete flat plates.
