Extensive Hospitality Industry Experience We have extensive experience in the development of luxury hotels and resorts, as well as a range of smaller development projects. Our team has worked on some of the gold standards of the industry including the Four Seasons Resorts Great Exuma, Terra Blanche , Whistler, Miami, Geneva, and Hong Kong as well as the Hazelton Hotel in Toronto. Through these experiences we have developed a clear sense of the International standards against which a high-end establishment is judged. We have also built up a network of vendors from whom we consistently find the highest quality products for the best price.
Knowledge of Operator’s Perspective Prior to establishing Project 3 Sixty, part of our experience included extensive in-house work for Four Seasons Hotels, something that has given us unique insight into their procurement strategies. This experience has been vital in enabling us to discern optimal functionality, longevity, comfort, and style on FF&E/OS&E items. We have also learned to consider the long-term operational requirements of the owner, and to make purchase decisions that maximize the asset value of FF&E/OS&E investments.
Project Management Expertise Our procurement services are enhanced by in-depth experience in all aspects of project management, including architectural and interior design, budget development and management, schedule control, construction, cost analysis, logistics and installation. We have supervised numerous international projects and have led design and procurement teams through every stage of renovation and new development.
Technical Expertise We bring detailed knowledge of all FF&E and OS&E commodities, including fabrication techniques, materials, and terminology. This expertise allows us to evaluate manufacturers’ claims, to verify whether their product is of genuine worth, and to suggest value engineering options that best suit the project budget. We have found these skills to be essential in negotiations with vendors on our clients’ behalf.
