Residence Inn Marriott Wailea
No Time, Like Island Time: Booking affordable extended stay in Hawaii
This topped-out four-story hotel will have 200 affordable-rate rooms especially configured for extended-stay travelers in Maui. The owner intends to draw interisland Hawaiian visitors seeking roomier living space that functions like home. The 180,000-sf Residence Inn Marriott is built on 6.4 acres of land with ocean views and adjacent to Wailea Town Center.
DCI provided both civil and structural engineering services for the architect. One particular civil design contribution was ensuring an intuitive pedestrian pathway developed between the hotel and retail destination. Construction support services included reviewing and approving the public ramp and retaining wall details. A specific structural design contribution included determining what was needed to support a partial basement level, which will feature hotel amenities and back-of-house access.
Residence Inn Marriott Wailea is slated to open in June 2016.
