New York City construction company Skystone is erecting the world’s tallest modular hotel using Autodesk software for project delivery. The AC Marriott New York on 6th Avenue will have 168 rooms over 26 storeys. Skystone is procuring complete hotel rooms, including all finishes and furniture, from a factory in Krakow in Poland, run by manufacturing subcontractor DMD Modular. The rooms, made in eight different configurations, are to be shipped to New York for craning into position around a concrete core.

Autodesk said Skystone is using AutoCAD and Revit for design-to-assemble for preconstruction, and BIM 360 for construction management. Autodesk said this keeps all project data in one place and helps teams coordinate design and execution.

Marriott began researching modular construction in 2014, the company said, to offset lengthening hotel construction times, a trend it attributed to a building boom and labour shortages. It said the average time to build and open a hotel in North America increased by as much 50% since 2011. It has been promoting modular construction to its hotel owners, franchisees and the construction supply chain since 2015.
