The Miyako Hybrid Hotel is an eight-story, 209-room, eco-friendly boutique hotel and spa in Torrance with easy access to the airport and beach. We provided structural engineering services for the new construction of this ecologically conscious business hotel, incorporating elements of sustainability and technology. Featuring dramatic two-story-high public spaces and a column-free ground-floor banquet hall, the Miyako provided a major boost to business travel and tourism in Torrance when it opened in 2009. Construction consists of post-tensioned concrete floors, with seismic and wind forces resisted by a combination of special concrete moment frames and shear walls.
