“Trusses in Paradise”
Client: Steel Framing Industry Association, Falls Church, Va.
A new resort in Hollywood, Florida, is inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of singer, songwriter and author Jimmy Buffett.
A great case study has to garner interest and be carefully researched. Our work for SFIA exemplifies these goals. We get the story right, and we make it look good.
Here’s the lead for the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort project profile.
Trusses in Paradise
Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort
Resort’s Complex Roof Made Easy with Cold-Formed Steel Trusses
Inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of singer, songwriter and author Jimmy Buffett, the $175 million Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort is the centerpiece of a revitalization of the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk in Hollywood, Florida. The newly opened, 349-room, 17-story oceanfront resort brings a “no worries” feeling of escape to its guests.
Several building assemblies played a key role in creating the tropical vibe. The project’s cornerstone, the TrusSteel(TM) Cold-Formed Steel Truss System from Alpine, was utilized in remarkable ways.
