14 the big squeeze The Pinnacle and Hampshire Companies hired Panel Pros to create the Super Structure System for The MC Hotel, a 120,000-square-foot, 8-story hotel in the Marriott’s Autograph Collection. The job site, located at a busy intersection on Bloom- field Avenue in Montclair, presented Panel Pros with several challenges. The narrow lot meant little room for deliveries and staging. Crane logistics required coordinating with the town- ship for road closures. Such tight conditions made going with prefabricated panels an easy choice. By working off-site, we were able to speed up the process significantly, basically cutting our time on the job site in half. Tricky as it was, installation went smoothly and The MC Hotel is now topped out. With 151 guest rooms, a farm-to-table restaurant, rooftop lounge with panoramic views of Manhattan, a luxury spa and 13,000-square-feet of event and conference center space,The MC Hotel will serve visitors to the region who wish to stay in centrally located Montclair. Montclair has been without a hotel since the Hotel Montclair closed in 1938, which has created a lot of excite- ment around this project, schedule for opening in early 2019.
