The Marriott Residence Inn, in Seattle’s University District, is an EIFS industry game changer!
The envelope design of the Residence Inn originally featured metal panels, thin brick and stucco. Most recently, this design created a significant challenge as the Marriott faced stringent new energy code requirements for air barriers and continuous insulation. Three different claddings, three different installation contractors and wildly varied warranties were quite a puzzle!
ARI provided the winning plan: Significant cost savings will result from meeting energy code requirements and the budget is affordable. Even better, the Marriott project design delights building management with one continuous envelope system that replicates metal, thin brick and stucco. State of the art Dryvit-manufactured EIFS includes a drainage system, air and weather barriers, positive moisture drainage, and true continuous insulation. The entire system and finishes are installed and warrantied by one award-winning contractor, ARI, and one respected manufacturer, Dryvit. Significant cost and energy savings win the day.
