Riverfront Hotel Indigo is a hospitality project located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  There is a concrete podium of about 16,000sf covering the retail area and amenity spaces. There are three levels of light-gauge framing with slab on metal deck construction on top of the podium.

The podium structure consists of post tensioned concrete beams and slab supported by concrete columns to allow an open ground floor amenity and retail space.  The floors above the podium are constructed of 3½” concrete topping over 2” Epicore MSR deck supported by load bearing cold formed metal stud walls.
