The newly constructed Hampton Inn at Verona was opened on April 21, 2021. The project management team of Jim Schanzenbach, Sean McKenna, and Tom McKenna did an amazing job of completing the project on schedule, despite the complications brought about due to the Covid pandemic. The 6-story, 65,000SF hotel was constructed with a conventionally built 1st floor podium level, while modular construction was used for the 5 upper levels. This unique hybrid construction methodology enabled the project team to reduce the project schedule by two and half months. Congratulations to the owner, Benchmark Development, one their newest project in Central New York.
