The AC Hotel by Marriott Scottsdale North, a six-floor higher end boutique hotel, was Digital Building Components’first overall project in Arizona and first load-bearing project in the state. The firm’s scope comprised floors 2 through 6 over a concrete podium on the second floor. This hotel will serve dual purpose for the owner as it will serve as overflow facility during tourist season and attract new customers.
Digital Building Components’ load bearing panelized walls saved the general contractor 10-12 weeks off their schedule, allowing them to start the MEP trades much earlier than they could have with traditional construction.
From March to May 2019, Digital Building Components hosted a fully furnished standard two-bed room mock-up for the owner at the firm’s finish facility. The mock-up included every detail from windows, to flooring, to sheets down to the toiletries.
