David Daniels, Director of Architecture at SSH, discussed how hotel owners and developers must be mindful of building value and return on investment into new hospitality projects in a panel session on Day Three of the UAE edition of the Arabian Hotel Investment Conference (AHIC).
AHIC UAE, which ran from 17-19 April 2018 and was held for the first time in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, took place in a beachfront ‘AHIC Village’ at the Waldorf Astoria. Attendees from across the region and beyond, gathered to gain expert insight from speakers, and discovered opportunities within the hospitality and hotel development sector.
David and co-panellists, in the session entitled Focus on Value Engineering, spoke on how the hospitality sector in the GCC has matured, leading to owners and developers having to change their hotel models to adapt, with better returns on investment playing a much bigger role in the construction of new projects.
“Adding value is crucial to modern hotel development,” said David of the panel discussion. “To have a forum such as AHIC to exchange ideas and opinions on how owners, developers and consultants such as SSH can work towards building added value into the design and engineering phases of future projects is superb.”
