Manchester Grand Hyatt

San Diego, CA


KHS&S manufactured and installed more than 2,200 panels for this 33-story high rise located in the heart of San Diego, CA.

Multi-sized EIFS panels, a 500-foot-high crane and KHS&S night crews all contributed to the rapid and successful completion of this high-end downtown hotel. To expedite building enclosure, KHS&S manufactured 20- foot-tall EIFS panels that allowed them to wrap two floors at a time on the top floors of this high-rise. Designed to exact specifications by KHS&S architects in consultation with project engineers, the project panels were especially challenging because of their articulated design and sloping windowsills and reveals. KHS&S craftsmen fabricated the panels off-site due to the restricted site size.

To ensure project safety, KHS&S coordinated with a local fire department to offer repel classes for crews working more than 30 feet off the ground on the project’s 32/12-pitched mansard roof.
