Allen + Shariff provided mechanical, electrical and plumbing design for this new 54,960 square foot four-story, 90 room hotel. Located in West Ocean City, Maryland, The Hampton Inn is built on the former Wheels of Yesterday site. All elements and MEP systems were designed to meet Hilton design standards and the International Energy Conservation Code requirements.
The mechanical system includes a dedicated outside air unit with heat recovery, utilizing the exhaust air to pretreat the required outside air. This unit was coordinated to be installed within a roof well of a pitched roof, to help with architectural aesthetics. Although the hotel rooms have PTAC units to allow for install cost savings, the common areas of the ground floor are served by a variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system, for energy efficiency and zoned control. The indoor pool included a dedicated dehumidification unit.
The hotel’s domestic plumbing design utilized water saving fixtures in conformance with current codes and standards. The domestic hot water is generated by two high efficiency condensing boilers that circulate water through two 320-gallon storage tanks.
The electrical design included detail wiring for two main distribution panels and 13 sub panels, interior lighting with use of digital lighting controls, exterior parking and security lighting, general power for resident rooms, HVAC, two elevators, and an addressable fire alarm system and three-phase fire pump.
