The tourism industry has always been one of South Florida’s biggest economic drivers. Ensuring all tourists have a place to stay requires near-continuous development by investors and hotel owners.
That said, building a new hotel or completely renovating an aging property is a complex process. The good news is there are ways to simplify it.
At Seacoast Construction, we work with project owners like you to break down the build into phases so we can move through the project on time and on budget.
Preparing for Your Hotel Build
Know your budget – Before you begin construction, it’s essential that your financial plan is sound and you have secured the capital you need for the project. Knowing your budget before you start any development project enables you to confidently move forward with the build.
Find your team – Hiring an experienced general contractor is the number one thing you can do to ensure success with your hotel construction project. It’s also important to hire a team with local, on-the-ground experience here in Miami.
Building in Florida is not like building elsewhere in the country. You want a team who knows the ins and outs of local building codes as well as how our climate impacts buildings’ construction and lifespans. Take the time to contact several GCs and ask tough questions before committing to the one that’s right for your project.
Embrace pre-construction – New builds are exciting. There’s always a sense of urgency when undertaking a hotel project, but there’s important work to be done first. One of the best ways to simplify and streamline the construction process is to do your due diligence during pre-construction.
This is when all the hard decisions get made as you collaborate with architects, engineers, and other stakeholders to tighten up plans before breaking ground.
