Le Méridien Hotel

Le Meridien Philadelphia Hotel was converted from an existing 10-story Georgian, revival-style facility originally designed in 1912 by Horace Trumbauer. The building, formerly utilized by the YMCA, was converted for use as a hotel and condominiums. 

The original structural system incorporated a flat tile clay arch and steel beam and girder floor. That system was modified to support the following new elements: a three-story corridor/bridge addition, elevators, ADA lift and stairs, entrance canopy, a mechanical mezzanine, a rooftop mechanical chiller, a generator dunnage, and a loading dock. Structural modifications were also designed to accommodate numerous penetrations through the clay tile system and various repairs to steel framing. Pennoni provided the structural engineering analysis and design.
