Guerdon Modular Buildings Delivers for Marriott

Guerdon Modular Buildings is now delivering modules to  Vandervert Construction, a company that specializes in general contracting and design-build construction of private commercial projects. The company, which is headquartered at 608 E. Holland, Spokane, WA was founded by development and construction veteran Dick Vandervert in 1975 and currently has 57 full-time employees.

In its largest current projects, Vandervert started construction in July and August on four hotels, Frye says.

One hotel project, an $11.8 million, 122-unit Courtyard by Marriott, is located on the Washington State University campus in Pullman. The others are in western Washington and western Oregon.

The Pullman project involves one of the first modular hotels to be built for the Marriott chain, Frye says, adding that Vandervert is working on the project with modular building manufacturer Guerdon Enterprises LLC, of Boise, ID.

Site work and foundation construction for the four-story, 76,000-square-foot hotel are underway in Pullman, and the modular units are being assembled in a facility in Boise, she says.

Modular construction technology combines on-site and off-site production, which will reduce construction time substantially, Frye says, adding that the project is being viewed by Marriott as a potential model for future hotel construction.

The Pullman project is scheduled to be completed in January.
