Hotel Marshall

Sacramento, CA

The historic Hotel Marshall got its start as the Hotel Clayton in 1911. The current renovation will reconstruct the 5-story unreinforced masonry structure into an 11-story steel framed hotel. The brick walls will add a historic façade to the new hotel, and are required to be stabilized with 60-foot tall steel trusses to allow the main portion of the existing structure to be demolished. Within the preserved façade, the new structure is steel post and beam up to the sixth floor, and then transitions to light gauge steel bearing walls to the roof. The lateral system consists of full height buckling restrained braced frames, bringing this century-old hotel into the modern era.
