NewcrestImage, in partnership with Guerdon Modular Buildings, developed this 142-room AC Hotel via modular construction in Oklahoma City. Production of the modules begin in June 2016 at Guerdon’s manufacturing facility based in Boise, Idaho. All rooms were finished to exacting AC Hotel specifications. After completion, modular components are indistinguishable from any other of the brand’s hotels.

The five-story structure is comprised of 81 modules that make up the 142 rooms.  Each room averages 336 sq. ft.  The owners will benefit from lower maintenance costs that come with quality modular construction and guests will enjoy better room comfort with lower room-to-room sound transmission that results from modular construction techniques.

In addition to the benefits that come with modular construction, Newcrestimage chose Guerdon and its Modular Technology in order to reduce construction times and open the doors sooner to meet the increased demand for hotel rooms.  The developer estimates that using modular construction reduced the schedule by four to six months. Modules were craned onto the podium in December of 2016 and the hotel opened exactly one year later.

Hotel amenities will include valet parking, a courtyard with a water feature, a full service kitchen, dining area, a full service bare, media salons, and a fitness room. The property is located in the Bricktown area of OKC, once an area of abandoned warehouses and now a vibrant urban neighborhood. Hotel guests will be able to attend homes games of the Oklahoma City Dodgers at the 13,000-seat Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark and have easy access to the Cox Convention Center.
