Project Description

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Anaheim Resort is a five-story, 101-room hotel located in the heart of vibrant Anaheim, CA—just minutes away from Downtown Disney and some of the world’s most renowned theme parks.

By redesigning the building with Smart Components and engineered wood beams, the project team was able to eliminate costly steel beams, several double-sided shear walls and all interior/exterior structural wall sheathing while still providing more space for windows. With easier installation and no time delays due to shear inspections, the original projected framing schedule was reduced by almost 40% (13 weeks to 8 weeks).
