HOTEL AND RESORT DEVELOPMENT

Hotels and resorts looking to undertake expansions or renovations can rely on the strategic advice of Hotel Solutions Partnership consultants to ensure their developments are feasible, deliverable and capable of maximising investment value and returns over the long term.

Starting with the market and feasibility studies, we establish exactly what is most likely to be successful, we then work with design professionals to develop a hotel or resort concept that responds to market demand. Our desktop valuation service gives you an accurate idea of what a hotel or resort asset should be worth. We offer support from conception to implementation of the project, including help with selecting an operator or brand and negotiating the contracts, assembling the project team and supporting the capital raising process. We are able to add value at every phase of the development cycle.

Hotel and resort development development can be challenging so we help you analyse your strategy, appraise your options and develop a plan that aims to deliver smooth development process and a successful market launch. We can also examine the investment plans of your existing hotel brand, ensuring that you’re taking maximum advantage of the opportunities open to you.

Design Reviews / Technical Services

Design Reviews include:

  • Design Briefs that above all consider the delivery of an excellent guest experience. Such briefs cover rooms and facilities, technical requirements, circulation flows, required back-of-house service areas, kitchens, laundries, front desk, detailed property requirements affecting the design and budget for new construction, existing property improvement plans and conversion and renovation projects.
  • Post Contract Services: responses to site queries, attending site progress meetings, providing co-ordination between the team completing the project and the hotel operational staff, establishing a pre-opening count down schedule and provide certification.

Project Phases:

  • Survey/Schematics
  • Development to Bid Documents
  • Construction/Contract Documents

We can deliver:

A Hotel Pre-opening Count Down Schedule clearly showing the sequence towards finish. This ensures that the contractor can allow for the phased take-over of areas, in the first place for installation of FF & E, and afterwards for training and pre-opening activity by the Operator, even before the completion of the Construction Schedule.

 

Technical Services

Hotel projects follow the same general sequence as other development projects, but with some important nuances. The property developers with an idea for a new hotel, or the desire to reposition one, must have hotel specialists such as the HSP Consultant Team to assist and to provide guidance and feedback during the following basic steps:

  • Evaluate the prospective site.
  • Complete a feasibility study.
  • Select the architect and specialist design consultants.
  • Prepare a Facilities Programme and Design Brief (concept statement, area programme, operational description, project budget).
  • Conduct Reviews of the project design (schematic, design development, construction documents).
  • Monitor construction and hand-over to the management team to ensure a timely and smooth hotel opening.

A building is a tool. It’s a piece of equipment that allows a hotel operator to deliver, efficiently and effectively, the hotel’s product and services to the guests. HSP teams will make an abstract assessment of the hotel’s performance requirements, and then develop creative and competitive approaches to the hotel operation.

We assist the developer to build hotels that cost less to construct and operate than a conventional building, showing the future of architecture and construction in the realm of green building and sustainable design. Through a technical services agreement, HSP will provide all guidance and other detailed hotel requirements affecting design and budget.

Investment Appraisals / Forecasting

Based on their years of experience at the top levels of global hotel management, our team can unlock the mysteries of the balance sheet employing techniques including net present value and internal rate of return analysis, which use the forecast incremental cash flows from each potential investment as a basis for in-depth appraisal.

Adding specialised expertise to the skill-set of your own financial department, Hotel Solutions Partnership can drill down to the essence of any investment, using local and global knowledge to flesh out the numbers and put the financial outlay in context.

Major developments such as new hotels or resorts require a thorough analysis of ROI potential, factoring in build and FF&E against anticipated revenues, but even your existing operations can benefit from an objective financial evaluation prior to the commencement of any maintenance, upgrade or expansion projects.

Know what your dollar is buying, before you commit to any investment.
