When it comes to renovations and the hospitality industry, The Refinishing Touch has seen it all, including renovations of hundreds of rooms of furniture. With over 35 years of experience, we know how to improve project efficiency and minimize costs, two aspects of construction that aren’t often considered mutually inclusive.
This notion has always been an industry misconception, and a mindset that The Refinishing Touch has been working tirelessly to change through our award-winning furniture asset management solutions since our inception in 1977. To us any renovation project can, and should, be carried out effectively across all phases, including: project efficiency, cost efficiency, and sustainability.
So when we heard about the upcoming renovations and brand switch at the Trenton Marriott in New Jersey, which is being converted from a Marriott to a Wyndham hotel, marked with a $2.4 million price tag, we knew the hotel owners could have saved a large amount of money. While some of the improvements include unavoidable changes, such as sign replacements, a large amount of the budget expenditures are allocated to meet required, brand product improvement plans, or PIPs, and could be reduced greatly had the hotel chosen to explore furniture asset management solutions. The process of repurposing, refinishing or re-upholstering existing furniture assets can cut costs by up to 80% — a substantial savings that will make room in the budget for other, more important improvements.
Surprisingly though, this is a challenge many hotels, universities and government bodies face on a daily basis – how can existing furniture assets be upgraded and modernized without requiring a multi-million dollar budget? In response to this, The Refinishing Touch has continued to improve our furniture asset management solutions year after year, consistently providing our customers with the most cost-effective, environmentally-friendly solutions on the market. By implementing our furniture asset management services hoteliers and facility managers alike are able to decrease budgets and carbon footprints.
