Construction is underway for one of the world’s most significant northern Hotels. The client selected modular construction as the most viable solution to a short building season on Baffin Island, Canada. Following 6 months of fabrication in our factory, delivery of the 62 module, 102 suite hotel is scheduled for July 2019 to Iqaluit, Canada. Bird Construction is concurrently preparing the site and erecting a convention centre which will be attached to the modular hotel.

Upon completion of construction in the Stack factory in May 2019, modules will be loaded onto a break bulk vessel at the port of Shanghai. The vessel will travel across the Pacific Ocean, through the Panama Canal, and up the Atlantic coast to Baffin Island in northern Canada. In total the journey will take 75 days and will pass through multiple climate zones.

Upon arrival the hotel the modules will be erected in under 30 days and finishing work will commence on the building exterior, plumping, mechanical and electrical services. The hotel will be able to open significantly faster than conventional construction methods.
