Hilton Garden Inn
You know the saying "Time is money." In hotel construction, that money runs into millions of dollars. With that much on the line, Baywood turned to a trusted source—Nashua Builders—for their first modular project and the first ever modular hotel for the Hilton Garden Inn brand.
“Baywood Hotels has been a longtime Hilton partner and supporter of the Hilton Garden Inn brand,” observes John Greenleaf, global head for Hilton Garden Inn. “Given this potentially challenging construction market and building site, they were eager to work with us to test this game-changing technique which offers a way to construct the hotel in a timely, cost-effective manner that reduces the overall disturbance in the building location.”
No labor shortage issues. With the wildfires and other disasters destroying so many homes and businesses in California, construction resources have been stretched to the limit. Building with Nashua's year-round, in-place workforce avoided costly delays and stoppages.
- Schedule acceleration. Nashua's factory process is much more efficient than conventional site construction, speeding overall production. What's more, building in the factory while site preparation is taking place at the same time cut months of the schedule.
- Superior quality. Nashua's modules are built to a higher standard to stand up to the stress of transport. And by building indoors, we avoid degradation of materials due to rain.
The 5-story hotel, which is less than two miles from the Tesla Automobile Factory, includes 12 EV charging stations (naturally), 145 rooms, conference spaces, an extended outdoor area, restaurant and lobby bar. It is also Hilton’s first newbuild, focused-service hotel to implement the company’s Five Feet to Fitness Program providing in-room fitness equipment in eight guest rooms.
