Hyatt House Hotel SOUTHSIDE, PITTSBURGH, PA
Hyatt Houses' expectation was to construct a hotel in Pittsburgh's bustling Southside neighborhood that would offer its guests various innovative amenities. A top priority for the clients was for Scalise to install energy efficient mechanical systems to the new facility offering a comfortable environment for its guests and staff.
EMCOR Services Scalise Industries is a single source provider for various mechanical services and offers high-quality solutions to a variety of commercial clients in the greater Pittsburgh area. With extensive experience in the hospitality market and a fexibility to adjust to client's needs, EMCOR Services Scalise Industries was selected to perform the mechanical construction installations to the newly built, LEED Silver, Hyatt House Hotel.
To meet the client's expectations, the certified technicians at Scalise installed complete HVAC and controls systems to the new, six-story, 140 guest room hotel. The structure has been awarded with LEED Silver certification and is equipped with state-of-the-art meeting rooms, cocktail bars, and an integrated bike storage facility featuring a wash station for bicycles. Vertical terminal air conditioning units (VTAC) were installed in each of the guest rooms, which will result in a sleeker design and also reduce energy costs and consumption. LEED designed heat recovery units were installed to centrally serve all areas in the hotel. These units will provide cost savings on both initial and ongoing operating expenses by reducing rooftop unit cooling loads and by recovering energy from exhaust air to operate efficiently.
The Hyatt House was originally an expansion to the Extended Stay Hotel chain under the Hyatt Hotels Corporation. In 2012 the Summerfield Suites chain was tucked into a new division, Hyatt House. The Hyatt House name is considered an acknowledgement to the original name of the entire chain from the 1960’s and 1970’s when it was known as Hyatt House Hotels.
