Currently, one of the sectors most affected by the pandemic is the hospitality sector. The impact has been so significant that even large companies and industry leaders have been forced to enter survival mode with a dramatic drop in workload.
But despite everything, the worst seems to be behind us. The good news is that new signs of recovery are starting to appear bit by bit. But it is noteworthy to mention that the best scenarios involve looking at the beginning of 2021.
April seems to have been the worst month by far, as reported by the hotel industry’s leading players. They saw a dramatic drop in revenue, in some cases, from up to 96%.
On the other hand, the smaller businesses, for their part, received help from the federal government that served to keep jobs and so avoided closing permanently.
Now the focus is on making hotels fully available as soon as possible while complying with the new health care and social distancing regulations.
For architecture in hospitality, both interior design and architectural design will undergo changes in the use of spaces, that’s no surprise.
The key lies in one thing; the more agile that adaptation to change is, the more solutions can be found both physically and economically. Studios with robust systems and processes regarding BIM methodology may run with an advantage in terms of the ability to respond to the demand of the hotel sector.
It is difficult to speak of increasing demand even at this time. Still, inevitably the sector is going to see a recovery in production, and the stimuli to boost activity are going to be of great help to accelerate this recovery.
Along with the experience in BIM methodology, the ability to work collaboratively and remotely both stand out. And there it doesn’t seem to be a better time than this to prepare the ground for when that moment comes. Regardless of the sector we are talking about.
The transition to the integrated use of BIM technology in the design stages has been. It continues to be an issue for the vast majority of large, small, and medium architectural firms.
We at Corbis have a vast experience in the sector since 2002, having participated in the Project Delivery of Kempiski Hotel in Oman, Palm Jumeirah Sofitel Resort in Dubai, UAE, and Resort World Las Vegas, NV just to name a few.
This is perhaps the ideal time to take the step and open the way to a more effective and competitive work model. It is all about getting past the roughest patch in the smartest way possible.
