So You Are Building a Hotel – Now What?
As brand standards continue to evolve with cabling, more bandwidth, access point density, electronic door locks, and other innovative features, it’s more important than ever to build an infrastructure that can integrate both older and newer equipment and services. Whether you are building a single unit hotel property or expanding with a hotel chain, you need to make construction decisions and select service providers that will benefit you in both the short- and long-term. When you’re building a hotel, you need to make sure you’re considering the following:
Building for Today and Tomorrow
You’ll find many companies and service providers that offer everything you need to complete your construction or renovation project using the latest equipment, top-of-the-line materials, and services that serve the modern-day hotel patron. However, not all of these systems and services will cater to your customers of tomorrow — the types of hotel guests that need more high-speed Internet bandwidth, for example, or those that want more advanced in-room entertainment options. When you invest in a Wi-Fi interface or large-screen television sets for every room and suite during your construction or renovation phase, you need to consider the needs of the customer of today and the customer of the future. Otherwise, you could end up spending even more money and resources just to upgrade your property and see customers turning to your competition for a higher quality experience.
This is where we come in. Our expert team is here to provide guidance and resources on equipment, suppliers, and materials for your construction project so that it is, and will continue to be, one of the most technologically advanced properties in the area. We also make sure the property is well-equipped to handle the evolving needs of tomorrow’s hotel guests, managers, and even future investors.
Preparing for Integration
Building an infrastructure that’s primed for growth requires the expertise of professionals that understand the full scope of technology trends and emerging trends that will impact the hospitality industry. The hospitality industry is evolving at a record pace and few properties are truly able to keep up with the times. Preparing for integration of today’s technologies and consumer needs with the tomorrow’s Internet capabilities, technological advances, and growing consumer demands is easier when you work with a seasoned team that can provide guidance with your construction decisions and when selecting various services for your property.
