The team at Virtus Consult have extensive experience in the Hospitality sector. From bedroom refurbishment programmes through to the development of new hotel and leisure club facilities our team have been involved in significant schemes both in the United Kingdom and overseas.
Our clients have included brands, developers and investors, but each with a common requirement; a balanced approach to business planning and project management. The interests of all parties in these projects need to be fully understood and managed – ensuring that aspirations for the project are mutually agreed.

The advent of being able to use mobile data to inform space utilisation is now beginning to affect the design of new hotels and facilities, which whilst it can ensure an optimised design, now represents a challenge to make sure that these spaces remain comfortable and welcoming.
