UK Hotel Developments
Edmond Shipway has a dedicated, specialist Hotels Team which has delivered over 4,000 rooms across many brands, franchises, forms of procurement and construction techniques with a development cost in excess of £250 million.
Our reputation has been built around delivery at best value and with 74% of our turnover being repeat business, we continually strive to deliver exceptional outcomes for our Clients.
Initially we can advise on positioning of the offer in the local marketplace, appropriate brands and the most efficient form of operational structure be they franchise agreements, management contracts or leases. We have direct contact with many of the key brands in the UK and can secure preferential terms for the right product and structure including in some instances guaranteed minimum returns, which can assist in the funding of the project.
A detailed understanding of the cost drivers in hotel construction allows us to give instant advice. Our cost models, refined over many years and constantly updated, allow a quick and accurate response to development and options appraisals.
Our detailed construction knowledge allows us to guide the design team to the most economic site specific solution and deliver real value results.
Our service can be extended to include full FFE procurement and management, with significant integration with the main contract to reduce overall development periods our supply chain management of this sector has led to real cost reductions of up to 20%. Contractors’ overheads and profit are removed with all the benefits of the competitive marketplace transparent and returned to the Client. We recently saved a Client over £100,000 by adopting this procurement strategy.
Finally, and most importantly, we deliver the project. We are experienced specialist Project Managers and our workflows developed over 4,000 rooms deliver that expertise to each and every project going forward.
