Flat Iron Hotel

Omaha, Nebraska

Schnackel Engineers was selected as the MEP/FP engineering consultant for the re-development of the historic Flatiron Hotel building in Omaha, NE. The four story building, which once had upwards of 90 rooms was recently converted to luxury apartment living space and now features just 30 apartments, store level retail and a restaurant, and common area for apartment dwellers. The project’s unique challenges included the fact that it is a designated historical landmark with a façade that could not be changed, and the routing and placement of modern building systems with minimal vertical access. Our team to great pride in their coordination of utilities relative to the restricted limits of the space. Our team visited the site on several occasions throughout preliminary design to get their heads around the owner’s aesthetic vision of the project. The result was a beautiful finished project which opened in early August of 2015.
