World’s tallest modular hotel to rise in NYC

Scheduled to rise in the fall season of 2019, Marriott’s new AC Hotel New York NoMad will represent a major milestone for the hotel chain’s drive to encourage North American hotel developers to embrace modular as the next-gen construction method.

Danny Forster & Architecture, the firm responsible for designing the $65 million modular project, aims to erect the 168-room, 360-foot-tall tower over a 90-day period at the rate of an entire floor a day. Marking a turning point for industry confidence in prefabrication, Marriott is actively incentivizing development companies that leverage prefabrication for construction to the hotel chain’s advantage. Since its initial research into modular construction in 2014, Marriot has gone on to open over 31 Marriot-brand hotels – all low-rise structures – that include prefabricated guestrooms and/or bathrooms.

The Modular, Prefab and Construction Tech Senate is aimed to create a premier destination for professionals working across the built environment to gain insights and experience firsthand the latest innovations and opportunities in modern methods of construction.

Key Benefits of Attending:

  • Addressing the causes of the productivity gap in the global construction industry and introducing the right tools and strategies to overcome it
  • Exploring innovations to improve processes and workflow to drive efficiency, safety and sustainability of your modular and prefab projects
  • Delving into the cutting-edge ideas, processes and systems being developed in the construction industry across single-trade, multi-trade and modular manufacturing processes
  • Enhancing collaboration between project stakeholders in from planning and design to improving fabrication efficiency and streamlining logistics and job site operations
