Marriott Courtyard on Wafflemat Waffle Slab Foundation in Hawaii
Wafflemat foundations can also be used in light commercial projects.
One tremendous installation was at a Marriott Hotel in the surfing capital of the world: Oahu, Hawaii. This 4-story Marriott was built to resist the strong winds and wet conditions of typhoon season.
Wafflemat was chosen for construction because of its superior ability to maintain integrity in the harshest of conditions. Wafflemat is the best foundation for expansive soil.
Three years after construction, the Marriott Hotel continues to stay strong against 190+ MPH winds, and Marriott Staff has yet to find a single crack in the foundation.
Marriott is so pleased with its waffle slab foundation that they even chose to construct a 30,000 square foot addition to their current system.
Reductions in soils prep, concrete, and steel mean not only significant hard dollar cost savings, but as the most proven foundation system in its class, Wafflemat also reduces the worry factor after the project is completed -- something every developer likes.
About: Wafflemat Foundation System is the world’s leading foundation system for building on expansive, compressible, collapsible, and rocky soils, with millions of square feet of residential and light commercial space built across the United States since 1993 – all without a single structural failure.
