Opened in November of 2018, the Holiday Inn Boston Logan Airport is the first new Holiday Inn construction in the Boston area in two decades. XSS Hotels served as the project’s developers with PROCON as the builder and designer of the hotel. According to PROCON’s Co-President Lance Bennett it is the 40th collaborative project between PROCON and XSS. The 64,000 square foot hotel sits just a few miles from Boston Logan Airport and minutes away from the bustling culture of downtown Boston.  The hotel is meant to provide an elegant, contemporary experience for both leisure and business travelers.

As with most new hospitality construction, the exterior façade of the Holiday Inn features a shared wallspace design. The façade utilizes intricate brickwork that breaks up the mostly modern exterior achieved with the use of metal composite material. The metal composite panels were fabricated by CEI Materials utilizing the team’s W5000 Route and Return Silicone Joint System. This system offers a weather tight economical assembly utilizing a closed cell backer rod, structural silicone joint and hidden fasteners.
