The Hilton Garden Inn in Uniontown, PA is a 119 room hotel located in the Fayette County Business Park near Uniontown, Pennsylvania. The was developed by the Synergy Real Estate Corp and the Fairchance Construction Co.
The design build consultant was able to streamline the ICF wall manufacuring process, by leveraging Helix Steel to replace all of the horizontal rebar reinforcement. This reduced the time needed for paneling the walls. Additionally, the hybrid design mix in each respective wall provided a 66% reduction in overall rebar while increase shear strength, ductility and durability.
This project won the 1st Runner up at the 2016 World of Concrete, in the ICF Builder Awards for the Multifamily Category.
