OCEANSIDE, CA --  Accoya, the world-leading modified wood manufactured by Accsys Technologies, has transformed Marriott’s Springhill Suites hotel in Oceanside, CA into a stunning architectural attraction for visitors and locals alike.

A three year renovation project is now complete, with more than 60m3 of Accoya siding encasing the hotel. Accoya was also used to add accent to the façade, for balcony railings, Porte Cochere lattice, patio shading structures and trellises and, remarkably, for siding around the hotel’s fireplace.

Accommodating visitors from all over the world, the hotel now stands as a clear example of Accoya’s superior aesthetic qualities, its dimensional stability, and its class 1 durability, even in exposure to the strong UV light and intense heat of the Californian sun.

Nicole Nathan, Principal and Lead Designer at JG Johnson Architects which ran the project, said: “Authentic materials help create architecture that feels rooted in a particular place - an essential quality for hospitality and tourism projects - and Accoya captured the authenticity we were searching for in this beachside hotel.  Oceanside, CA is home to the longest pier on the pacific coast and the silvered wood there inspired the selection of Accoya.”

Bryan Crennell, director of sales and marketing at Accsys Technologies, said: “The renovation of the Marriott hotel with Accoya has delivered exceptional results, not just aesthetically but in performance terms as well. Accoya is increasingly being used on projects such as this and we’re pleased that, whilst maintaining the highest standards of quality and reliability in their work, architects and specifiers are choosing the sustainable option, as Accoya is carbon negative in window frames”

Created using Accsys Technologies’ propriety acetylation technology, Accoya delivers outstanding levels of performance, including dimensional stability, Class 1 durability as well as exceptionally high levels of sustainability. Sourced from FSC® certified wood from legal, manageable and sustainable forests, Accoya is an attractive wood product which is Cradle to Cradle Gold certified and which is perfect for a variety of uses from millwork to external siding, structural projects and decking. 

Accoya is available to purchase from Accsys Technologies’ global network of official distributors. For further information visit www.accoya.com.
