Hotel Tsubaki

ROLE: Architect of Record 
CLIENT: P.H.R Ken Microensia

Hotel Tsubaki is a 26-story, 350-guest room high-rise hotel project adjacent to the existing Nikko Hotel in Tumon, Guam. The scope of work involved coordination of concept design drawings from a Japanese Architect and review of the drawings for building code, local requirements, and accessibility compliance. The construction documents were completely developed in BIM, allowing the design team to coordinate the building systems seamlessly with the structural elements.

The facility is a concrete poured in place structure, with piling foundation system, post tensioned concrete floor and roof slabs, and a combination of reinforced poured-in place concrete walls and pre-cast concrete walls. The design of the facility evolved, even well after the construction documents were completed. RIM remained involved to coordinate the changes with the consultants for the building department and contractor. During construction, RIM was involved in all code and accessibility matters, contractor RFI’s and submittals, and review of work in the field.
