DMDModular reaches for the sky
DMDModular is planning a skyscraper to go up in New York
POLAND/USA DMDmodular, which is based in Skawina near Kraków, is to produce the modules for the tallest modular hotel in the world. A four-star AC Hotel by Marriott hotel with 25 floors and a height of 96m will be built on Sixth Avenue in New York.

“The signing of this contract is the result of more than a year and a half of hard work by our entire team and a key moment for the company. We are very excited that we will have the honour of taking part in constructing tallest modular hotel in the world,” says Ewelina Woźniak-Szpakiewicz, the CEO of DMDmodular. The factory is to produce 168 fully equipped hotel rooms with bathrooms. The production has just started and should be completed in Q1 2019 when the modules will be shipped overseas. “We are producing 21 floors in 21 weeks for the AC Hotel by Marriott in New York. Such a schedule would be absolutely unachievable using traditional methods,” says Ewelina Woźniak-Szpakiewicz. The first four floors, which will include bars and restaurants, will be constructed in a traditional manner as will be the lift shafts and the stairs, while the remaining 21 floors will be constructed out of modules, with eight rooms per floor. The investment costs for the hotel come to USD 70 mln and the work is to be completed by the end of 2019. The design is by Danny Forster & Architecture. This is not the first in New York hotel to be built from Polish produced modules. The CitizenM hotel has just opened on Bowery Street, having been constructed from modules by Polcom Modular from Chojnice around 85 km (north of Bydgoszcz). The 19-storey building has 300 rooms and it is currently the highest modular hotel in the world. Last November, Polcom Modular also announced a hotel with 47 floors and 620 rooms that is to be constructed in London’s Canary Wharf office district with the opening planned for the end of 2020. The module producer is also to be directly responsible for the London hotel’s development with an estimated investment cost of GBP 120 mln.

“Global leaders today recognise that modules are more profitable than conventional construction techniques, primarily because of its time savings, which result in solid profits in the hotel sector,” says Ewelina Woźniak-Szpakiewicz the CEO of DMDModular.
