T.Y. Lin International (TYLI) provided a complete suite of Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) engineering services for the Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel by Marriott in Malaysia. Because the original hotel building was completed in the 1990’s, all existing M&E systems were carefully redesigned in order to elevate the facility to five-star status in accordance with Marriott’s Design Standards.
The 345-room hotel covers a gross floor area of 53,000 square meters and was designed to International and Malaysia codes. With 19 stories and one underground level, it houses restaurants, a world-class spa, a health center, a ballroom, and more than 2,400 square meters of on-site meeting space.
- Due to TYLI’s expertise in hotel M&E design and development, the team was able to design an energy-efficient system despite complex space and structural constraints.
- The hotel’s original refrigerator chiller (400 tons of chilling capacity) and four air handling units were assessed and integrated into the new system, allowing older and new equipment to function seamlessly, and up to Marriott’s Design Standards.
