A Solid Foundation: Unveiling the Power of Cold-Formed Steel

At the heart of every successful hotel project lays a strong foundation. Often, this strength comes from the type of materials used.

Our advanced flooring systems, including TotalJoist and Composite TotalJoist, provide superior alternatives to traditional construction materials, like wood or precast.

TotalJoist’s cold-formed steel offers it all:

  • exceptional strength-to-weight ratios;
  • vibration control; and
  • load-bearing capabilities.

Engineers can trust that their clients’ hotels will stand the test of time, ensuring guest safety and long-term reliability.

Design Flexibility: Tailoring Spaces to Perfection

Our cold-formed steel flooring solutions empower engineers to unleash their creativity and transform hotel spaces into havens of comfort and luxury.

Each joist has large pre-punched service holes, allowing follow-up trades to quickly and easily complete their work. Combined with Composite TotalJoist’s stay-in-place formwork, developers will achieve an ROI faster than ever before.

Lightweight cold-formed steel allows for wider spans and greater open spaces, enabling architects to craft breathtaking lobbies, large ballrooms and meeting areas that leave a lasting impression on guests.

Making Construction Processes Even More Efficient

In the ever-changing world of hotel construction, time is of the essence. Cold-formed steel flooring systems expedite the building process by offering easy installation and reduced construction timelines.

Engineered with precision, these systems arrive at the jobsite ready for installation, minimizing on-site labour and accelerating project completion. Engineers can rest assured that deadlines will be met while increasing quality.
