PIP (Property Improvement Plans)

Our Technical Services division conducts quality audits on existing hotels in  order to assist our clients prepare for minor and major refurbishments. We  prepare  detailed budgets and project timelines to refurbish properties in order to maintain quality and brand standards.


The strength of our procurement service is a  reflection of the strength of the relationships we have built with key manufacturers and  suppliers. We negotiate contract prices and  use our bulk purchasing power to access the  best quality products from international  sources. Through these relationships we cut  out the middle man to contain costs and elevate quality.

From sourcing FF&E at the most competitive prices globally, to ongoing  co-ordination with the interior designer, architect and hotel  operator through  each stage of the development, and management of the budget.

FF&E is custom-made to the specification of the design consultants. Ongoing  inspections and quality control management over our manufacturers, ensures  quality and suitably specified furniture is manufactured and  delivered to the  project. Kitchen, laundry, OS&E, technical and back of house areas are all  coordinated closely with the hotel operator.

Hotel Spec’s proprietary procurement  software enables us to track all line items  from tender stage right through to final handover and asset register. Our cloud  based software  allows us to draw detailed reports from  anywhere in the world, and provide accurate updates.



We use an automated tracking, inventory,  warehousing and freight management system to ensure that all shipments arrive on site  when they are needed. We assist your import  agent, taking care of the freight clearing and  forwarding, paperwork, packaging, routing  and storage. This consolidated approach  means that you save money and time, and avoid costly delays.


Our project teams receive and install all furniture, fittings and equipment in the correct locations, with unfailing attention to the design specifications. This includes checking the inventory; positioning furniture; hanging all artworks; performing minor repair work as necessary; fine-tuning the communication systems; testing service equipment; ‘burning in’ kitchen fittings ; training staff in equipment operations; and preparing asset registers for the entire development.
Once we have completed a full snag list and resolved every item on that list, we hand you the keys and add your name to our growing list of satisfied clients.
