The process and steps involved in any type of renovation project can be overwhelming to even the most experienced project manager. However, no matter how inundating the renovation experience is, a good project manager knows how to stay on task. Below are a few things to keep in mind when undergoing a renovation project, no matter how big or small.
Number 1: Planning is key – It is important to make sure that every task involved with the project is outlined fully. That means coming up with “what if” scenarios, as well as ensuring all materials related to each task are properly stated.
Number 2: Fixtures are Important – Do not skimp on the fixtures. While high-end, quality fixtures can seem quite expensive, not investing in this important feature can cost the hotel in the future in terms of lower guest visits and room bookings.
Number 3: Budgeting is necessary – Having a clear budget is the difference between the renovation being a success or a costly failure. It is critical that the project managers, contractors, and owners are on the same page in regards to how much the project should cost. Many wonderful project management software programs are available with helpful budgeting templates.
Number 4: The little details matter – Guests notice everything, and when undergoing a renovation project, so should the project managers and owners. When a hotel is updated, guests expect a “Wow” factor, and it is the responsibility of everyone involved in the project to ensure that happens.
