Alpharetta, Ga. (Nov. 10 2021) – Construction management firm, Firmo Construction, has been hired to build a Fairfield Inn by Marriott in Alpharetta, a city within the Atlanta metropolitan area.

Bringing decades of experience with the Marriott brand and the hospitality industry, Firmo and HOS Management, in partnership with Elevate Architecture Studio, will deliver this Marriott model just a few minutes away from downtown Alpharetta.

At a little over 78,000 square feet, the structure will be situated on a six-acre lot.
