HOTEL DEVELOPMENT CONSULTANCY SERVICES AND HOTEL MANAGEMENT
PCL Hospitality is a proven leader in hotel management and asset consulting services in Thailand. Whether you are developing a hotel from the ground up, negotiating a management contract, optimising operational performance, assessing an acquisition opportunity, or executing a sale, PCL will guide you with insight and advice.
Throughout the hotel investment cycle, we have the expertise and proven ability to help owners achieve their objectives.
PCL has been commissioned to conduct hotel feasibility studies on many projects throughout Thailand and Indochina. The hotel feasibility study is a comprehensive analysis conducted to assess the viability of a proposed hotel project. It involves evaluating various factors and variables to determine whether the hotel development is financially and operationally feasible. The study provides valuable insights to investors, developers, and stakeholders to make informed decisions about investing in or developing a hotel property.
It involves evaluating market demand, financial projections, location suitability, development costs, operational considerations, and return on the investment (ROI). The study helps stakeholders make informed decisions by providing insights into the potential profitability and challenges of the project. Based on the findings, recommendations are given to either proceed with the project or make necessary adjustments.
PCL will give recommendations on the type of hotels, number of rooms, size of rooms and facilities that the project should have in view of the ROI.
Technical Services / Design Management Consultant
PCL hotel project consultants can support the design team to ensure that the hotel design is functional, supports efficient workflows, enhances the guest experience, and promotes revenue generation.
Architects and interior designers can design aesthetically appealing spaces but, it is equally important to recognize that profitability is driven by the ability to drive revenue and manage the operational costs. The right space and design are critical to ensure the ROI, this must not be overlooked.
PCL project team works with many international hotel operators on newly built hotel projects and renovation projects, and throughout the years we have developed in-depth knowledge of technical requirement to give quality advise to our independent hotel owners and franchise hotel owners.
Hotel Project Management (pre-con)
PCL has a full-time team that focuses on Project Management, the process of overseeing and coordinating the design aspects of a hotel project, from conceptualization to completion. It involves managing various elements such as architecture, interior design, MEP, lighting, audio visual, IT, kitchen and back of house planning.
Our in-house team specializes in hotel projects only, which gives PCL a competitive advantage compared to the general project consultants.
The key responsibilities include:
- Project Planning: We collaborate with the project owner and other stakeholders to establish project objectives, scope, and budget.
- Schedule Management: We develop and manage project schedules, tracking progress and milestones to ensure timely completion.
- Project Coordination: We act as the central point of contact and facilitate effective communication among all project stakeholders. This involves coordinating the work of different designers, ensuring compliance with plans and specifications, and resolving conflicts or issues that potentially may arise during construction.
- Cost Estimation and Budgeting: We will work with Quantity Survey (QS) on preparing detailed cost estimates for the entire project.
- Contractors and Suppliers Selection: We will assist the QS team with the tendering process in selecting the suitable contractors, subcontractors, and direct purchase packages.
