PROJECT DESCRIPTION Astoria Hotels has established itself as one of the most sought after accommodation providers in the country as shown by the multiple awards they have received for their hotels. Astoria Current is the second hotel of the company in Boracay Island and boasts of 238 luxurious rooms, see-through swimming pool and the trademark warm reception that is truly Astoria.
CLIENT REQUIREMENTS Quantity Solutions Inc was hired as the quantity surveyor and project manager to provide cost management from preconstruction stage all the way to completion of the project. The biggest challenge for the project is logistics for a small island like Boracay where the port is limited to passengers and small cargo.
OUR CONTRIBUTION QSi established the conceptual, schematic and construction cost of the project and led the design team in determining the cost driver items that were driving the total project cost higher. Project learnings from previous projects were also incorporated in the new design approach to improve the total value of the project.
Our dedication, competence and loyalty to our client has allowed the timely completion of the project, within budget and with distinguished quality that we will always be proud of. Our close coordination with the design team allowed for changes to have minimal impact on the project by constructing mock-up units that empowered our architects and interior designers to improve the aesthetics without constraining cost.
Our cost management services ensure good returns to our clients and that will always be a measure of our success as cost adviser.
OUR VALUE QSi provided loyalty and competent services to the client for the last 5 years resulting to valuable financial savings and continuous project development. Astoria is now on its 8th accommodation establishment and growing. This highlights our role as cost engineers and project managers as partners for success.
