SFO Grand Hyatt

Completed   2019 in San Francisco

AGA is used to dealing with wind loads on buildings, but winds literally powered by jet engines isn’t our everyday occurrence. The SFO Grand Hyatt Hotel required both engineering and product material considerations to ensure the guests inside had respite from the noise generated outside. Noise generated not just from the planes taking off on one side of the building, but also from the many cars on Highway 101 on the other side of the 351-room, 12-story structure. In this challenging task, AGA went through extensive STC testing to prove the acoustics reached mandated requirements. 

A LEED Gold project, the hotel also won the DBIA recognition of National Excellence + Merit Awards in Commercial/Office. Noted from the DBIA award: “The project team successfully combined aviation technology into a traditional hospitality environment by skillfully adopting a collaborative and partnered approach to construction management challenges. The team continuously adhered to a ‘one team’ principle to achieve project success.”
