After Strategic Hotel Consulting had conducted a market and financial feasibility and recommended a suitable operator, we defined the project framework, objectives and requirements. The client signed with ALiLA, which was later acquired by the Hyatt group.
A luxury lifestyle destination resort in a stunning setting.
Our client, a large specialist development company, is in the process of developing one of Switzerland’s largest resorts – Golf Resort La Gruyère. The project will include 105 luxury apartments, a 5-star hotel including state-of-the-art spa and wellness retreat, meeting and conference facilities, various food and beverage outlets, 85 hotel rooms and 27 hotel residences. The entire project is divided into various sub-projects, including a luxury 5-star Hyatt hotel for which we provide project management services.
We set out the preliminary project structure, team organisation and planning. We prepared an overall project brief and began team procurement, starting with the lead architect and interior designer, and following up with local team members including local architect and engineers. We prepared and reviewed contracts, and led negotiations for fees and terms & conditions.
The architect and interior designer developed a preliminary design which was presented to the operator and client. Work then proceeded to first concept design, which was developed in close collaboration with the engineers and specialist consultants, along with first project specifications and a detailed first budget. With a value engineering phase ongoing, our role is co-ordination between the client, lead architect, local architect and the operator’s technical services team based in Zurich and Hong Kong. It also involves procurement of remaining team members, contract administration, budgeting, planning, providing the client with regular reports and advice, and reviewing all plans and documents.
Construction is scheduled to begin in late 2020.
