Responsibilities – Project Management – Programing, conceptual design and REQ/RFP Phase services for a Design Engineer development program


New hotel with 176 rooms on Greenfield site.


Carnival required a purpose built hotel to be located immediately next to the CSMART facility to accommodate attendees while attending weeklong training programs in the new simulator and training complex. 


PMG was retained to lead the programing phase and conceptual design of the hotel followed by coordinating selection of a Dutch PM to manage the RFQ/RFP process to select an Engineer Build team to develop the hotel.  In order to present a unified training center complex appearance the hotel’s conceptual design included similar architectural elements and finishes used in the new CSMART.  To allow any weather movement between hotel and training center, the hotel design includes a below grade walkaway connecting the hotel lobby and parking to CSMART.


Operational and budget opportunities captured in the hotel design allowed for all training center and hotel parking to be located on 2 levels below the hotel, instead of two separate parking structures. As a result opens space was increased and CSMART construction cost reduced.
