Hospitality

Hotels are getting more and more popular among holidaymakers. Hotel architecture thus plays a major role in the building industry. The design of spaces and the development of innovative concepts merge to create the promise of a unique holiday experience. No matter whether it is a luxury resort or accommodation for employees, a hotel projects is a great opportunity for creative experiments. In practical terms, the focus of attention lies not only on efficient planning and cost calculation but also on the economy and ecology of a space where guests are supposed to enjoy hospitality in an authentic and sustainable manner. Furthermore, future-ready technology should always be a constituent part of any hotel design.

Balancing all of these requirements not only calls for comprehensive industry knowledge but also a partner capable of keeping an eye on all the project requirements and controlling them throughout the planning process. From capturing the as-planned versus as-built gross internal areas through to handling user-specific and statutory requirements, projects and companies can greatly profit from information management. We support our clients and owners of national and international hotel chains and operator companies in the development of operation-based information standards so data can be processed and made accessible.

Industry-specific
challenges

Apart from BIM project implementation, model-based quality assurance of project results and BIM process control,
our past projects involved the following challenges:

  • How can an international design standard be verified based on rules using BIM, and how should national standards be handled within a given design standard?
  • What model-based methods are available to define, integrate and control the interface between property planning and interior planning?
  • What are the interfaces within the organisation, from the CAFM system through to the booking system, and how do the requirements affect the documentation?
  • How can operational processes (such as incoming and outgoing shipments) be simulated during the early project stages, and how can they be incorporated into the planning process?
