US: A Home2 Suites by Hilton property in San Francisco will be the brand’s first built using modular construction techniques.

Opening in early 2019, the extended stay property is also the first modular build hotel in the Bay Area.

Developed by Southern Hospitality Services, LLC., and constructed by Akshar Development Inc., the Home2 Suites by Hilton San Francisco Airport North site staged a ceremony where pre-fabricated elements of the hotel were put into position.
 
Global Head of Home2 Suites by Hilton, Adrian Kurre, joined Mayor for the City of South San Francisco, Liza Normandy, and owners Roy Patel, Vijay Patel, and Bj Patel from Southern Hospitality Services to watch as a crane lifted and positioned the hotel's exterior panel pieces. Guests were also able to tour one of the pre-fabricated suites, featuring the brand's signature in-room kitchen and separate living and sleeping areas.
 
"Staying at the forefront of building trends has translated to faster construction and ramp-up times, making Home2 Suites one of Hilton's fastest-growing brands," said Kurre. "The unmatched efficiency of modular building allows us to provide a consistent, high-quality product constructed in as little as half the time of a traditional build, allowing owners to see an even faster return on their investment."
 
By using the modular process, construction time for the Home2 Suites by Hilton San Francisco Airport North property will be cut nearly in half and will be significantly shorter than the average for the Bay Area market.
 
In addition, the property will incorporate several sustainability measures above the standards of the Home2 Suites by Hilton brand. Solar panels will produce close to 50 percent of the hotel's energy, a bio-retention pond will filter water run-off, and additional measures will help to reduce the hotel's overall carbon footprint.
