We provide our clients with focused support and advice from inception of the project through to the first guests head hitting the pillow and beyond with the industry leading aftercare service.
Initially we can advise on positioning of the offer in the local marketplace, appropriate brands and the most efficient form of operational structure, be they franchise agreements, management contracts or leases. We have direct contact with many of the key brands in the UK and can secure preferential terms for the right product and structure including in some instances guaranteed minimum returns, which can assist in the funding of the project.
A detailed understanding of the cost drivers in hotel construction allows us to give instant advice. Our cost models, refined over many years and constantly updated, allow a quick and accurate response to development and options appraisals.
Our detailed construction knowledge allows us to guide the design team to the most economic site specific solution and deliver real value results and a true programme for delivery, even if works are phased to enable continued opening, as well as ensuring the correct contractors and suppliers are engaged from the correct stage of the project.
For clients without a established supply chain and procurement team we can really add value and smooth the development process with full FFE procurement and management, which with effective integration into the main contract can reduce overall development periods and is proven to led to real cost reductions.
