Carling Hotel

Chicago, IL

The Carling Hotel is an historic, single-room-occupancy building that provides affordable housing for Chicago residents. Located in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood, the Carling Hotel underwent a 16-month renovation completed in 2018.

As part of this revitalization project, two interior courtyards required soil remediation, solved efficiently and effectively by the Omni Terrain™. The Terrain’s affordability and ease of installation made it an ideal solution for meeting this project’s unique accessibility requirements and budgetary goals. The contaminated soil within each courtyard was capped with an engineered concrete barrier and six inches of Omni Infinity Media™. The courtyards were seeded with an Omni Lawn seed mix, and presently provide peaceful green spaces for residents.
