PROJECT:DOORS FOR MORE THAN 25 HOTELS
PARTNER: PINEAPPLE MANAGEMENT SERVICES INC.
- Project to be completed in phases over a 5-year time frame
- Hotels to be constructed throughout the country
- Question as to whether the architect and contractor would remain on the project
- Consistency in products specified to control costs on future maintenance
- Potential costs savings in the scale of the projects.
Brabner & Hollon Inc. was asked by one of the project partners to consult with the architect regarding door specifications. After reviewing the plans for the first hotel, we were adamant in our opinion that the frame, door and hardware specifications should be consistent throughout the projects. The length and scope of the projects might result in the use of different architects and builders. Potential cost savings in construction and future maintenance could be squandered if the specifications were not consistent. Brabner & Hollon Inc. was asked to be the supplier and installer for all 25 projects and we accepted. Considerable savings were realized from negotiations based on the scale of the work involved. The architect and contractor did change but the products used remained the same. To insure future cost savings, upon completion of each hotel, the maintenance manager was given a directory listing the manufacturers and contact numbers for all products installed. The project was completed on budget and on time.
In a tough economy it is important to do business with a company that has been around the block a few times. Our recent capital expansion at Brabner & Hollon, Inc. shows our commitment to the future and highlights the stable foundation of a 55-year-old-company that has weathered previous challenges.
Completed this past May, Brabner & Hollon increased its office and warehousing space by 6,000 square feet to store doors, frames, hardware and specialties for our clients. As the region’s largest full service distributor, we will not compromise the services, such as installation and warehousing, our customers know and expect.
