The Westin Hotel at Lincoln Square

Luxury Accommodation Amidst Unparalleled Amenities

The Westin Bellevue Hotel is a AAA Four-Diamond, award-winning hotel situated at Lincoln Square in the heart of downtown Bellevue, Washington.  Lincoln Square includes major office, hotel, residential, and retail components as well as a 24-screen, 4,500-seat multiplex theater.  It ranks as one of the largest mixed-use projects in the United States.  Our involvement ranged from providing recommendations for advanced wall system design to controlling mechanical noise for the THX Theaters.


The design of this building included a bowling alley located above retail shops and below the THX Theater.  We had to meet the challenge of developing floor/ceiling assemblies which would provide sufficient impact isolation for these spaces as well as luxury-grade residential and hotel areas.


In the process of developing impact insulation recommendations, we conducted tests on 14 different assemblies including engineered wood flooring and ceramic tile.  These assemblies were used in the final design of residential and hotel flooring systems.
