Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus added a new entrance vestibule in 2012, enclosing the original open-air, concrete-framed structure with a new exposed galvanized steel canopy structure featuring fixed glazing, sliding glass doors, and glass skylights. To meet building code requirements, the steel structure was coated with a three-part fireproofing coating featuring a primer, an intumescent layer, and protective top coat. Hotel personnel observed the protective coating peeling, the intumescent material activating, and water leaking into the vestibule. SGH investigated the cause of the intumescent failure, developed repair documents, and oversaw the repairs.
