About the Project

Apart from its close proximity to the Houston Galleria, the Hyatt Place is a mere 20 minutes from just about anywhere of interest to visitors in Houston: corporate offices, restaurants, and attractions ranging from the Museum District and the aquarium to NRG Stadium and Minute Maid Park.

With 35 million visitors annually, the Galleria itself is generally regarded as the most visited attraction in Houston!

The Hyatt Place project team tapped Southern Wall Systems for a scope of work that included four projects:

  • Installing 65,000 square feet of continuous insulation (ci) systems
  • Installing thin-brick masonry
  • Applying waterproofing below grade
  • Applying sealants high and low
