What happens when Hotel California of the Eagles becomes an infrastructure made of steel?
Then the hotel wouldn’t be famous because it is being talked about in that old song, but because it became one of California’s best asset in the field of architecture. Not only did Hotel California become much stronger and susceptible to extreme weather conditions and to earthquakes. It also became an epitome of an economy but high quality building.
So this is how a conversation go when one nerdy architect starts talking about California steel buildings with “Hotel California” playing in the background. The dialogue really seems funny, but what the architect said about steel buildings is true.
I can attest to the beauty of California steel buildings. Of all the metal buildings I have seen through my non-stop trips in many countries, I say California has the most modern and exquisite construction of general steel construction & steel buildings. These metal buildings made locals say goodbye to ugly and traditional metal boxes they call metal infrastructures that have blighted California. Today, communities have been greatly concerned with the appearance of California steel buildings and thus implemented strict construction regulations.
And just when I thought California steel buildings have reached their maximum design limits, a lot of steel manufacturers across the country have shown me the different ways of beautifying and accessorizing the steel buildings to create breathtaking landmarks. Some of the steel buildings are accentuated with high quality glass, bricks and rock facades with catchy designs and colours as the exterior. Inside California general steel buildings, I have marveled at prefabricated steel especially manufactured to withstand earthquakes.
I knew I looked like a child seeing a really nice toy as I was checking out the fiberglass insulating the rigid boards of California steel buildings, but who cares? No one can disagree with the impressive reduction of heat and cooling expenses offered by this particular feature of general steel construction and steel buildings. And all these time I really thought staying inside a metal building would be like being trapped in an aluminum kettle on top of a stove!
And much like a toy dollhouse, most California general steel buildings have walls and roof panels that can be easily removed (with help from construction experts of course) for easier building expansion. New frameworks can be added and end panels can be re-used, so remodeling and renovation of buildings would be faster and cheaper.
Whereas before, general steel buildings can only be suitable for barns and farm storage purposes, California steel buildings have proven that metals can also comprise the walls of schools, offices, warehouses, churches, horse riding areas, garage, sports recreation areas, and government offices. This makes me stop and wonder about Hotel California.
Seriously, what would it be like staying in a hotel made of steel?
