The Pullman Courtyard by Marriott is only the second Marriott hotel to be built using modular construction. The 122-unit hotel was crane set on the campus of Washington State University on November 16, 2016. In partnership with Stonebridge Companies and Vandervert Construction, the four-story, 76,000-square-foot hotel features exact finishes and room types specified by Marriott.

Stonebridge Companies will be the owner and operator of the completed hotel, which is slated to open to the public in spring 2017.

“Modular technology combines on-site and off-site construction processes to build a better building, faster. While site crews worked on the foundation, Guerdon had already completed production of the modules that make up the hotel,” said Lad Dawson, CEO of Guerdon Modular Buildings. “This approach not only reduces construction time substantially, it also addresses many of the challenges that hotel developers face, including finding skilled labor, maintaining construction quality and minimizing risk. Every day, we talk to more and more developers looking to reduce their risk and take advantage of this technology for their next hotel project.”

Marriott’s first modular hotel, a Fairfield Inn in Folsom, California, opened December 1, 2016. Their third, came right on the heels of this, an AC Hotel in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Marriott is looking to use these projects as examples for other developers as they build additional hotels with modular technology across the United States.
