Marriott Corporation: Modular “Accommodation”

In our last issue, we featured modular/prefab buildings as an up-and-coming construction model, leading to the question of quality-focused integrated performance issues — i.e., how to commission pre-assembled systems and facilities.

As the market and confidence in the process continue to grow, we see this as a potentially disruptive (combination of) building technologies for Cx providers.

The Marriott Corporation, an early leader in commissioning advocacy across its portfolio, is “stacking” a 26-story, $65 million modular hotel in New York City, to be completed in the fall of this year.

Eric Jacobs, Marriott International, Chief Development Officer, North America, says “The world’s tallest modular hotel in one of the world’s greatest destinations will act as a game-changing symbol to ignite even greater interest in modular among the real estate and lending industries.” How might this affect you?
