YotelPad has the goal to appeal to guets who find traditional hotels uninspiring and are searching for a different experience, not just a great sleep.
YotelPad Miami is the first of its kind to hit the East Coast and NTI is proud to have been selected to be the technology consults for this unique project. The YotelPad is a modern 31-story, approximately 327,356 gross square feet high-rise building. This is a fairly new brand by YOTEL which includes 222 hotel rooms, called "cabins", and 231 condos, called "PADs".
The building also includes a pet spa, co-working space, a pool deck that has a restaurant and bar, a fitness center, and a Skytop Lounge. The hotel guests and residents will both be able to partake in the amenities mentioned above. The condo owners and residents will be the only ones with access to the "Lounge in the clouds" which's approximately 2,000 square feet that has a game area and kitchen.
Cabling Design - We designed the Data/Voice cabling infrastructure systems including horizontal and vertical cabling, cabling pathways, cable management and IDF, MDF and Equipment Room closet layouts and all outlet details. The cabling system will support voice and data (POS, PMS, Admin LAN, wireless and hardwired Internet access) services.
MATV/CATV - We coordinated with the television service vendor and Architect to identify all cabling, junction boxes, TV locations, splitters, taps and amplifiers as necessary to provide a complete distribution system to support the MATV/CATV system. We also provided layout details for the new head end room and a performance specification for the MATV distribution system. Using the performance specification, the cabling vendor had the necessary information to design, install and test/certify the new MATV infrastructure (including all amplifiers, taps and terminations) in accordance with the equipment vendor (OCV, World Cinema, etc.) requirements
Security - We designed and incorporated the client’s recommendations, designs and/or concepts for all Security systems devices for the Hotel to include closed circuit security cameras, security monitors, duress alarms, door contact alarms, alarm control panel, keypads and motion detectors. We incorporated the owner and/or operator device locations in our drawing set as part of the Construction Documents only after a thorough review and final sign-off of those locations has been completed and approved in writing by the owner and operator. A stand-alone access control system was designed for the residential and public/common spaces portion of the project.
Audio Visual - Included a Dynamic Background music system that adheres to the brand requirements. This system supports up to four (4) sources of audio that can be distributed throughout the facility. Within the meeting spaces we enhanced the audio system with additional support of microphone and line level inputs, and with enhanced speakers designed to maximize vocal clarity and Multi-media playback. The rooms also have additional audio channels that can support Assisted Listening devices or other audio needs. In each Key space, volume controls and source selectors was placed in areas accessible to staff, to allow for control within the assigned space, thus eliminating the need to go to a central closet to make changes.
