Marriott Knoxville Downtown

– Hospitality –

We partnered with MHM Architects on the full renovation of Marriott Knoxville Downtown, located in the heart of Knoxville. The structural scope of the renovation included modification of the World’s Fair Park building façade for new window openings and overhead doors, the design of a new entry trellis and vehicle circulation, infill of the existing pool structure, and new MEP penetrations for the complete mechanical system overhaul. Structural renovations were necessary to update the guest rooms, meeting rooms, and lobby. The star of the structural upgrades is a beautiful monumental stair connecting the lobby directly to World’s Fair Park. The stair was constructed with Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel (AESS) and required the removal and relocation of an existing 27” deep steel girder for the upper-most landing. The renovation gave new life to the hotel while complementing Knoxville’s unique history.
