You’re dreaming big for your new hotel.

With leisure and business travel bouncing back and eateries finally enjoying a post-pandemic rebound, the hospitality industry is seeing a spike in revenues as well as patrons. Whether it’s a single standalone location in a local entertainment district or a mega-property towering over a bustling metropolis, all the classic walnut wood or white sanded concrete floors won’t matter.

Before welcoming your first guest you need complete, current, and accurate data to closely manage your project on time and on budget. Just like touchless check-ins with a simple snapshot of a QR code, automate your project management solutions to build transparency and efficiency into the construction process.

Emphasize technology to build efficiency

According to industry trade group California Lodging Investment Conference, the pandemic accelerated existing trends in the use of new technology for construction while Covid-19 also hastened new techniques in room design and décor as well as a growing emphasis on sustainable practices. Hotel Management notes that architects are working to reduce carbon, water, energy, and materials sourcing in their designs as builders turn to the growing interest in solar energy, smart sensor systems, and water reuse to minimize waste.

Weather, work stoppages, and supply chain disruptions can affect a project. But with the amount of data available today through easy-to-use construction project management solutions, poor planning is no excuse. The result is costly delays that unnecessarily inflate a project’s budget.

Considering that hotels are one of the highest energy and water consumers per square foot, diligent design and project execution are vital to deliver a building that maximizes efficiency and productivity.

Facilities must be functional to accommodate today’s visitors, but builders also must forecast future capabilities before construction even begins.

Here is what owners must keep in mind whether it's a new project, an expansion, or a gut renovation.

  • Self-guided services will continue to alleviate staffing shortage pains and reduce costs
  • Hospitality staffing shortage will continue to impact future hotel building and planning
  • Building hotels will require incorporating more sustainability goals
  • Prefabrication will reduce costs and shorten completion timelines

It’s not just new carpet and a fresh coat of paint anymore; technology plays a vital role when embarking on a new project. For example, data intelligence can provide specs for the right amount of insulation that saves energy, controls condensation, and helps HVAC systems perform better for longer.

Owners and delivery teams need a trusted solution to help them remain agile throughout construction so assets can be built efficiently and delivered with the flexibility to accommodate guests well into the future.

Hotels owners will continue to demand higher levels of technology to not only increase operational and staff efficiency, but also meet changing expectations for a high-value, relatively low-touch experience.
