Homewood Suites Galveston

  • Project Location: Galveston, TX
  • Owner/Client: Matrix Builders
  • Project Description:

The Homewood Suites hotel in Galveston, Texas features 88 guest rooms across five stories, along with meeting rooms and business centers where guests expect all the comforts of home.

Matrix Builders chose DXS for their energy efficient HVAC systems that could meet tight budget needs, and their commitment to service throughout the product life cycle. Their new hotel was equipped with a Daikin VRV heat pump condensing unit, a 16 ton Daikin Vision AHU with a wrap-around heat pipe, and 2 Daikin Rebel RTUs. An EKEXV integration kit from Daikin tied all the equipment into a VRV system for a cohesive, easy-to-service HVAC solution.

Hospitality Key Considerations

The best hotel architects, developers and engineers have mastered the balancing act.  They balance eye-pleasing aesthetics with smart operating design.  They balance the comfort of property guests who expect maximum air conditioning flexibility in their individual rooms with the realities of managing operating costs for hundreds of rooms.  And in the case of corporate hotels, they balance the parent company’s design standards with franchisee requirements and local tastes.

DXS helps architects, developers and engineers create hotels that meet all of these needs.  We provide VRF systems that offer maximum end-user flexibility and reduce operating costs while allowing for architectural plans that favor aesthetics over obtrusive mechanical equipment.

Key Considerations

  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Improved aesthetics because of smaller installation footprint and better space utilization

  • Ability to provide a variety of sensors that allow the owner to customize their HVAC system based on their specific needs. Excellent humidity control

  • Robust training program for maintenance personnel
  • DXS onsite at five key junctures:  onsite training prior to installation, quality control checks during installation, during start-up, 30 days after commissioning for building owner verification, and ongoing training for staff
  • Fast, dependable service and maintenance support after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment
