Value and Risk Management of proposed hotel development
Your client is developing a high end hotel, of 4 or 5 star quality, providing 400 bedrooms. The City centre site (Dubai) has been identified and purchased and the client has selected RIBA PoW 2013 framework to manage and deliver the project.
The client is seeking innovative scheme proposals to become market leader in exploiting the growing business and leisure market opportunities that a high-end hotel will service. Your VRM consultancy has been hired to provide value, cost and risk services to the client and design team at the stages of RIBA PoW 2013 identified below. The purpose of hiring your consultancy services is to ensure the existing design team develop innovative and cost efficient scheme proposals befitting a high profile and prestigious development that can be delivered on time and to budget.
RIBA PoW Stage 0 - Strategic project overview
Prepare a report for the design team explaining the relative importance to the client of each of the six categories of value identified in the CABE value driver categorisation, and suggest how these might influence the design. This will help ensure the design team understand the client's values as they develop the design solution. " It's Attached as CABE VALUE DRIVERS"
RIBA PoW Stage 1 - The project budget
Advise the client on how much they should budget for the hotel development (exclude external works) based on cost models (BCIS) "you will choose a file (breackdown example) and the BCIS not in the information it is attached in the reference file, you will choose a random breakdown structure and compare it to our hotel and do similar one. of hotel projects and propose an outline cost plan for the project. Then also find and compare 4 hotels in Dubai city which also have the same budget as our hotel (Ex: Sheraton, Hilton, Rotana), its about (5000 - 6000 DHS/sqm). The BCIS example attached is in Euro Currency You must change it to (DHS/AED) UAE Currency.

It is nine months on from Stage 0 and the client is facing some financial difficulties. They are demanding a 10% cut in the budget from the design team. Prepare a report on how this can be achieved by proposing elements of your cost plan to be targeted for a VE study and explaining why they have greatest potential for achieving the saving whilst minimising impact on the quality and integrity of the development. You are encouraged to make radical value engineering proposals which go beyond traditional cost cutting. " So you will cut 10% from the SAME BCIS you did in Stage 1 - The project budget" , You will use the file "HotelCostModel" attached. You can also use other HW University Library Journals.
RIBA PoW Stage 0 - Strategic risk assessment
The site has been identified, the project team assembled and the project is now nearing the end of Stage 0. However, before the client commits to proceeding with the project they want to carry out a strategic risk assessment on which they will base their go/no-go decision.
