Des Moines Downtown Hilton Hotel


The exterior envelope on this 330,000SF full service convention center hotel is a 10” thick insulated concrete wall panel system that includes 3” of integral continuous insulation. This composite wall panel system utilizes the Carbon Fiber Shear Grid connector system and the insulated wall panels are supported from the CIP structure and Post Tension Slabs.   The three exterior integral precast colors were selected with an acid etch finish exposing similar fine aggregates to create a consistent appearance between the white, grey, and charcoal colors.   Enterprise Precast collaborated with the design team, contractors, and trade partners to produce a cost-efficient design from panel layout optimization, efficient load paths, detail assistance, as well as envelope coordination.
