MODULAR CONSTRUCTION

The Residence Inn project will utilize modular construction. Modular buildings are designed and constructed as individual sections, called “modules.” Modules are fabricated off-site in a manufacturing plant using traditional assembly-line methods. They are ultimately fitted together on-site, creating a cohesive finished product. ‚Äč

Modular construction is a sustainable process that comes with many advantages:

  • A shortened construction schedule (completed in less than half the time)

  • Reduced energy consumption (by about 67 percent)

  • Minimal on-site disturbance, resulting in better protection of the surrounding green space

  • Less on-site vehicular traffic

  • Significant reduction in material waste (up to 90 percent)
