Learn about the two biggest reasons to trust your hotel build to a full-service firm
Chances are, at one time or another, you were forced to stay at a hotel that was not exactly a five-star establishment. Perhaps it was on one of those seemingly never-ending family road trips when everybody was exhausted and the first sign that appeared on the horizon looked like it was sent from heaven, regardless of how many letters weren’t lit up. Maybe it was a romantic getaway that you’d heard good things about, only to discover that the only amenity worth being overcharged for was the vibrating heart-shaped bed. Whatever the situation – whether the décor was drab and uninspired or you wouldn’t hesitate to use the term “flea bag” – your hotel experience was probably worth forgetting.
Or maybe not.
It’s possible that after staying at a hotel that would be lucky to get two stars in a Yelp review, you decided that you could do it better. You had the vision to build a fabulous hotel with gorgeous rooms that only offered guests the finest of everything. And unlike most people who had that “I could do it better” attitude, only to forget about it the moment they got home, you didn’t forget. You know you can create a hotel that people will be rave about in online reviews. The question now is what is the best way to build it?
The answer: with a design-build firm.
What Exactly is a Design-Build Firm?
Design-build is a somewhat self-explanatory term. Instead of going to one place to work with designers and another to work with architects and another to work with the construction crew, with a design-build firm, you only have one point of contact. Every person you’ll need to deal with to get your hotel off the ground is under one roof. So, how is this beneficial to you and your hotel project?
You already know that you’ll be forking over quite a bit to build your hotel. But wouldn’t it be nice to simplify your expenses, and possibly be able to cut some of your costs? This is one of the biggest advantages of working with a design-build firm. One team will handle your entire project. You won’t have to worry about bidding and negotiations and many of the financial hassles that come with a piecemeal construction project.
With a design-build firm, your budget is worked out at the beginning and there will only be one company to pay. Given the continuity of and communication during the process, unforeseen issues that cause cost overruns are less common. In addition, employing a design-build firm makes it more likely you will bring in revenue earlier, because you also save …
Remember all of those places you had to visit and all of those people you had to talk to during your last project? You can forget all that with a design-build firm. Again, every person who will play a key role in creating your hotel is in one location. This means that not only is it easier for you to work them, it’s much easier for everybody there to work with each other.
Collaboration is done much more quickly. Problems that may have taken days or even weeks to fix could now be solved in a matter of a couple of hours. In the end, this means that your hotel project is much more likely to come in on time and under budget. And the sooner you are up and running, the quicker you can start generating revenue.
The most efficient and cost-effective way to take your hotel from an idea in your head to the hottest accommodations in town is with a design-build firm. When you’re ready to get started, contact Telesco Construction at 305.390.0250 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
