Two firms combine for first modular AC Hotel in Oklahoma

NewcrestImage, a hotel development, construction and management firm, partnered with Guerdon Modular Buildings, manufacturer of modular construction projects, to use modular technology to build a 142-room AC Hotel in Oklahoma City. This is the first NewcrestImage project – and the first Oklahoma City hotel – to be built using modular construction processes.

ADG served as architect of record, while Duncan Miller Ullmann served as designer on the AC Hotel Bricktown project.

Located at 411 E. Sheridan Ave. in Oklahoma City, AC Hotel Bricktown is located next to the 13,000-seat Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark and near the Cox Convention Center. AC Hotel Bricktown is slated to open in June 2017. NewcrestImage will be the owner and operator of the completed hotel.

The first floor of the five-story hotel will be built using traditional construction. The following four floors will be built from 81 modules built by Guerdon Modular Buildings. As part of the modular construction process, production of the modules will begin in June 2016 at Guerdon’s manufacturing facility based in Boise, Idaho. Each module will be transported to Oklahoma City using flatbed trucks, and will be craned in over the course of four days in October 2016.

NewcrestImage is a hotel development, construction and management firm based out of Dallas. NewcrestImage currently owns and operates 19 properties, with another 12 hotels under construction or in development. It was formed in 2013.

Guerdon is a manufacturer of modular construction projects and modular multi-family housing developments in the western US and Canada.
