PIP's & Renovations

HOTEL MAKEOVER DELIVERS FAST TURN KEY RENOVATIONS

SIMPLE PIP LISTS TO THE MOST COMPLEX RECONSTRUCTION PROJECTS WITH JUST ONE CALL!

Before Hotel Makeover became a hospitality designer, purchasing agent, and furniture manufacturer, we were constructors and hospitality renovators.  Beginning in 1982 as a commercial kitchen contractor, we designed, built and outfitted some of the country's largest restaurant, hospital, school and even prison kitchens.  In 1999, we developed Hotel Makeover to provide hotels, timeshares and other lodging facilities with higher service levels and products than were generally available at affordable prices.  

Our renovation clients face the same problems you do:   

  • Too little time
  • Too little understanding by contractors and suppliers of your operational needs
  • The need to remain open with minimum impact on guests
  • The inability to find quality workmanship skills
  • Too much finger pointing and too little responsibility
  • High prices
  • Little accountability
  • The difficulty of coordinating design, purchasing and construction suppliers

The roots of most renovation problems derive from three factors:  

  1. Most properties wait too long to renovate;
  2. Design, construction and decor elements are purchased separately from unrelated sources, so there is little accountability; and
  3. Operators try to coordinate all elements and activities themselves.  

In response to these needs, Hotel Makeover developed an integrated construction program that allows us to deliver a completely custom coordinated hospitality renovation with only one call on your part.

JUST ONE PROFIT MARGIN MEANS LOWER COST FOR YOU

An added benefit is lower overall cost, because we provide every element of your renovation with just one single, low profit margin.  If you purchase design, FF&E, installation and construction services from separate providers, you must pay separate profits to each of them, and your total cost goes up.       

HOW DO YOU RENOVATE?

Are You A Periodic Renovator?

If you schedule large scale renovations every 5 to 7 years, like most hospitality operators, you have only one chance every scheduled renovation to correctly upgrade your product to the demands of today's – and tomorrow's – market.  You must correctly select every component to optimize the look and comfort of your property, and choreograph and properly execute every construction element  to minimize cost and disruption to your business.   The skill requirements are enormous and even small unexpected or incorrectly managed issues can dramatically increase costs.  Cut the wrong "corner," choose the wrong sub-contractor, or fail to manage every detail correctly and you will live with bad results for another 5 -7 years!  Hotel Makeover is your best source to complete large scale, periodic renovations correctly with just one call - on time and on budget.

Are You a Progressive Renovator?

Most of the industry practices periodic renovation, but Hotel Makeover is pioneering the concept of progressive renovation in the hotel world. Progressive renovation is a continuous program of pre-designed small scale renovations to keep all elements of your property ALWAYS clean, new and up to date.   The most important benefit to progressive renovators is continuous high product quality without the roller coaster declines in attraction and room rates too many properties face today, PLUS lower, more predictable costs and much greater ease of management. 

Progressive renovation is practiced by some mega-properties, but most hotels and franchisors lack the skills and tracking mechanisms to effectively manage the process.  The cost to the industry, however, is staggering.  Allow us to design and manage your progressive renovation program.     See Blog

NEW CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Hotel Makeover can also manage the construction of your new property.  Project management is a science to us.  If you've built prior properties you know that delays, ineptitude, mistakes and unearned draw requests can add a fortune to your budget or even destroy your property before it's built.  We use state of the art management programs and techniques to continuously plan, track and update the work of every contractor and sub-contractor on every job we manage, and we can apply those techniques to your projects too. Our management fees are affordable and you can save literally hundreds of thousands of dollars in delays, mistakes and overpayments.  Call us about managing your next construction project.
