Located just south of Chicago’s city center, the convention center, McCormick Place, attracts international visitors year round. To accommodate these guests, the existing Hyatt Regency Hotel expanded its lodgings with a new +/- 460 room hotel tower above its existing parking structure. TERRA was responsible for the surveying and civil engineering aspects of this LEED Silver certified project. TERRA completed a survey of two city blocks to accommodate plan and profile engineering work to connect the project’s storm sewer to the deep tunnel. In addition, TERRA improved the site’s convenience through the expansion of the existing driveway and drop-off areas.
