Checklists for Hotel Project Stakeholders

To ensure successful delivery of your hotel project, we have made checklists for key stakeholders.

OD stands for Open Date or the date the hotel should be ready for customers. Schedule is given relative to open date, for example OD - 3 Months is to be read as “3 months before open date”.

If you are going through the document and realize an item is delayed from the reference schedule, contact your Mount Kelvin delivery engineer immediately.
