Springhill Suites – Alexandria, Virginia

christopher provided a range of civil engineering and surveying tasks to Marriott International for Springhill Suites in the City of Alexandria, Virginia. Springhill Suites by Marriott is a 155-room hotel located on Eisenhower Avenue adjacent to the Cameron Run Watershed and the Capital Beltway. Due to a massive storm in June of 2006, the entire property was designated to be within a FEMA-designated 100-year floodplain. christopher had to revise the hydraulic and hydrologic modeling prepared by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to prove the 100-year water surface elevation would not increase after the development of this project. The hotel was designed to LEED certification standards.
