Hotel Project Management

Under the expert guidance of Crescent’s seasoned team, Project Management at Crescent Hotels & Resorts is a fully turnkey operation which includes oversight of the entire Capital Improvement Project process. With more than 50 years of combined experience, Crescent’s Project Management team has a solid background in preventative maintenance, extensive capital projects and PIP completion and life safety management. It is this extensive experience in all aspects of the hospitality industry that provides proven results, and enables us to stand by the fact that we know project management.

Crescent Project Management acts as an owner’s representative in order to reduce and modify the Brand Property Improvement Plan (PIP). The PIP is then priced to provide ownership with an estimated budget to work from. Pending owner’s approval, Crescent Project Management interviews, and ultimately hires the architect and designer, and works with the brand to finalize the design concept. Once bids are sent out, Crescent oversees the contractor selection process. All procurement is handled by Crescent Project Management: everything related to the PIP, all Purchase Orders tracked, and the entire budget monitored from start to finish.

Crescent Project Management Group services include:

  • Brand Property Improvement Plan (PIP) Negotiations and Pricing
  • Bids, Vendor and Contractor selection
  • PIP Item Purchasing and Procurement
  • Hotel Capital Item Purchasing (Miscellaneous)
