Compartmentalization of each individual room
While the general contractor, Grupo Cayalá, was designing their guest room prototype to get Marriott’s approval, we offered to help a make a schematic firestop proposal as a first option for the overall project.
On-site technical estimations were made with the project managers, who had not yet defined the scope of fireproofing the joints. Our Field Engineers were asked to propose several firestopping options matching the building specifications while considering both Marriott’s and local authorities’ requirements in terms of passive fire protection.
We provided three coverage proposals: from basic compartmentalization – only covering evacuation areas, up to a more complete solution – requiring each room to be individually compartmentalized.
The latter was the winning proposal: not only did we help ensure high-performance and verifiable passive fire safety measures, but we were able to deliver a system that matched the standards requested by our client. This was achieved thanks to the close collaboration with the contractor and careful product selection.
