Historic Hotel Renovation
IMEG is providing engineering design and services for the historic renovation of the Kaskaskia Hotel in LaSalle, Ill. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 104-year-old landmark will undergo a complete interior renovation while maintaining the historical aspects of the property.
The 100-room hotel will include a full-service kitchen, convention space, a roof-top gathering spot, and a ballroom.
Heating and cooling for the hotel is provided by a variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system. The hotel is ventilated using a dedicated outside air system, and event and conference spaces are served by variable air volume air handlers with energy recovery. Makeup air units serve the commercial kitchen spaces and the pool is served by a dehumidification unit.
In addition to MEP and fire protection, IMEG is also providing civil, and technology and acoustics engineering.
The project is scheduled to be completed in late summer of 2021.
