MWT Architect + IHG Hotels & Resorts | History
Since 1994 MWT Architects has worked with InterContinental Hotels Group and continues to foster support and excitement in working with the team at IHG. Working with IHG is like no other as the company has so much History. It was founded in 2003, making it to be now 17 years old.As a hotel provider it’s a remarkable company and MWT Hotel Architect and hotel plans is just always amazed by its history and glad to be working on its future hotel plans. Currently Patrick Cescau is the Chairperson and Keith Barr as the CEO.
Architecture and development through partners and franchisees have sparked a tremendous amount of growth for both IHG and MWT. We share the same IHG vision with our clients inevitably supporting the IHG brands, leadership and goals. There has been consistent growth and the need for hotel plans and hotel architects in designing, interiors, exteriors with inviting spaces. World travelers want to see, and experience great design and we deliver on our mission as Hotel Architects. Our engineered systems and the special interiors live up to the IHG name and its brand standards.
As the future of hotel development unfolds MWT is now designing both dual and tri branded hotel properties with Intercontinental Hotels Group. Real estate developers have embraced this new offering. Covering a gamut of travelers from tourism, to business workers, or just families that need an extended stay.
We develop real solutions that are fulfilling the brand standards while also providing the value engineering for the developer. The most important piece a hotel architect provides is an exceptional architectural experience for the guest that is something that IHG and MWT both strive for as the main goals of both of our businesses. It doesn’t matter the property, sometimes it’s a modern and simply hotel or resort design that has a great offering or a complex property with a sophisticated offering. MWT Hotel Architect and Hotel plans are here to help designing the future.
MWT Architect + IHG Hotels & Resorts | Flags
MWT Hotel and Resort Architects since 1994 has worked extensively with InterContinental Hotels Group and its many flags. IHG offers franchising opportunities that respond to its demographics and the changing world of traveler’s needs. Change is inevitable as it is part of life, and MWT Hotel and Resort Architects and Hotel Plans embrace the future with IHG. We both continually evolve with the demands of today’s societies and their individual needs of various types of travelers.
InterContinental Hotels Group currently is a 17 years old company and is a leading brand in the business. With almost 1,000,000 hotel rooms worldwide, IHG offers 14 flags which include some of the world’s most recognizable hotel properties. The following is a list of flags currently offered in its portfolio of hotel plans; Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, Regent, Hotel Indigo, Crowne Plaza, Hua Luxe, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Club Vacations, Holiday Inn Express, Intercontinental, VOCO, Staybridge Suites, Candlewood Suites, Avid Hotels, and Even Hotels.
As some market areas and cities have become a higher barrier of entry, real estate developers have turned to dual and tri branded hotels. InterContinental Hotels Group and MWT Hotel Architects have already created numerous developments with franchisees to capture a greater and diversified market share in just one development. The flexibility of offering a streamlined affordable property and an extended Stay is an amazing financial opportunity for a better-balanced market share and a better and safer return on one’s investment. Some of the construction and employee staff savings include, one main entry with a mixed lobby, front desk check-in area, shared elevators: pool, exercise room, and back of house areas. The combination of one property, and the shared amenities makes these properties a better real estate investment.
MWT Architect + IHG Hotels & Resorts | Services
Mark Tiedemann CEO of MWT Hotel architects and hotel plans has been working side by side with IHG Hotels and Resorts since its inception in 1994. We have a 26-year tract history working directly with developers and the executive teams at IHG . MWT has always developed its work on hotel plans by working closely with executive teams at IHG and its franchisees. We develop design projects that incorporate the rigors of the local state, and federal building codes and the franchise brand standards.
Developers and contractors sometimes don’t always understand the complexity of meeting the building codes, and continual improvements made within the IHG brand standards. The typical hotel construction documents now required to get a franchise approval and a building permit is extreme. We are seeing over 400 sheets of drawings and hundreds of pages of design specifications that coordinate the design of a project. Every year, MWT has been working with IHG the bar and the complexity of building designs are set higher too. For these types of conditions, you need a firm like MWT that has the experience and know how to not only work from scratch, but we develop real solution even while project is under construction.
Brand standards are always evolving at IHG and sometimes mid-stream, we are asked to make changes for the next evolution of that flag being built. While this may seem to be a waste of time it is really providing the owner / developer with the latest and greatest design within its hotel plans. This will give the developer the advantage of being in alignment with the brand standards upon opening. We work around the clock and are grateful to see are results built worldwide and talked about on social media.
