The Sydney office of HVS International is pleased to announce an extension of its capabilities with the launch of a new division -- HVS Project Services.

HVS Project Services provides design management and project direction as a natural extension of a project on completion of market and financial viability studies. Essentially, this service turns a proven hospitality concept into a reality.

The HVS Project Services approach has two unique distinguishing characteristics:
  • An exclusive focus on the hospitality industry and a complete understanding of project development needs;

  • An active role in leading the creative and strategic processes, to ensure that the project does not depart from the original model which was found to be market supportable and financially viable.

This new service is headed by Bryan Abbott, an architect, who possesses a wealth of commercial project experience gained during his 28 years of continuous practice in Sydney, Hong Kong, London, and Dubai. Throughout his career Bryan has specialized in the delivery of complex building projects. With an emphasis on integrated fit-out, construction and refurbishment, he has had an extensive involvement with the hospitality sector.

"HVS Project Services fully understands that our clients are investors in, or operators of, a hotel property," explains Abbott. "We know that our projects are more than just construction exercises. We are committed to assisting our clients develop and manage their hospitality businesses."

From its Sydney base, HVS Project Services can deliver projects across the Asia Pacific region.

Ron de Wit and Rutger Smits established the HVS Sydney office in 2003, and today it provides a wide range of consulting and valuation services for hotels, resorts, serviced apartments, and mixed-use developments across Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific.
