G/BA handled the replacement of four 100% outside air units for the hotel guest towers at the 792-room, 750,000-square-foot luxury hotel located in downtown Chicago.
Built in 1929, the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile —formerly known as the Medinah Athletic Club — combines historic charm with contemporary elegance. The centrally located hotel features 792 guest rooms and 45,000 square feet of meeting space.
The InterContinental was the first Chicago hotel to receive an ENERGY STAR rating. This eco-friendly hotel achieved StayGreen recognition from the Illinois Hotel & Lodging Association and is committed to continuously improving environmental performance through best practices.
In this three-phase project, G/BA focused on the replacement of four air-handling units, which supply 100% outside air to the guest room corridors of both guest towers.
