Hyatt Regency at Oregon Convention Center
Meeting the Tourism Demand: The long-envisioned hotel for Portland’s convention center
The City of Roses is ready to take on bigger national conventions and events, and a 600-room Hyatt Regency can now accommodate the influx of visitors. The 440,000-sf building consists of two distinct portions: a 14-story concrete hotel tower and a four-story steel framed ballroom interconnected with a shared base level.
DCI Engineers was the engineer of record for the primary structural systems of the hotel and parking. The hotel portion is constructed out of post-tensioned concrete floors and a shear wall lateral system. The ballroom contains a lateral system of special concentric brace frames and composite post-tensioned slabs.
- The convention center can attract more events per year now that a larger occupancy hotel is located near the venue.
- DCI conducted a dynamic modal response spectrum analysis for the non-rectangular hotel tower.
- The LEED-certified hotel faces the public plaza creating foot traffic between the Hyatt Regency and the convention center.
