As a hotelier, you must understand the cutthroat competition with other vendors in the hospitality industry. The construction industry is not much different in this regard. From slashing prices to getting clients’ attention to falsely claiming to provide the “best” or “top” services in a locality, you will see construction vendors doing anything and everything to land a project.

Although the competition keeps them on their toes, it also makes finding the right commercial design-build contractor for a project somewhat daunting. We understand that this pressure can make even a small renovation project feel like a hard nut to crack.

As one of the top-rated construction management service providers in Alberta, we make it our goal to help make the task of renovating a hotel easier for you.

In this article, we have listed some of the factors that you should consider before renovating your hotel. This will also help you better scrutinize the vendors who are interested in your project.

Costs Of Renovation

Renovations, depending on what you have in mind, can be costly. Hence, before starting construction, you are advised to come up with a budget that works for your business. A qualified and experienced design-build contractor will be able to assist you with developing a budget that is both realistic and works with your business plan.

Note that your budget expectations should be realistic. Remember you will get what you pay for.

If you don’t already have all the funds necessary to fully conduct your renovation, a couple options to consider are the Canada Small Business Financing Program, or you reach out to the financing group at the BDC (https://www.bdc.ca/en/financing).

At BelVan Construction, we also provide pre-construction consulting services. Our experienced and qualified team offers the expertise and resources to evaluate sites or buildings, develop concepts, provide accurate budget pricing, and explain various construction options. Our approach helps our clients and partners make better, more informed decisions resulting in expedient project delivery.

The Timing Of The Renovation

Although this doesn’t seem like much of an issue, it is. In the hospitality business, timing is everything. Make sure that you go through your hotel’s occupancy data and find out when the least rooms will be booked and when the hotel will be the least busy. You want the renovation to have the least amount of negative effect on the business as possible.

Have A Clear Concept

Have a clear idea in mind of what you want your renovation to accomplish. The design-build company you opt for can help you in making these decisions. However, if you have a clear idea in mind, it will make the planning phase more seamless.

While deciding on the elements of renovation, make sure you consider your target audience. For example, if you want to cater to more people who are on business trips, consider creating business call booths, silent rooms with office cubicles and lobbies with several switches near the seating areas.

Communication Is Crucial

Make sure that you communicate your goals and objectives with your contractor on day one. This will not only ensure great planning but will also ensure that the final result will be according to your liking.

To ensure proper communication, when undertaking the role of Construction Manager, BelVan Construction works with the client’s design team during the design phase through to construction completion. This enhanced collaboration during the early stages of the project allows for a greater overall understanding of a client’s needs.
