Do you have a project that qualifies for funding with the exception of a strong team?

We can supply global ‘shovel ready’ projects with an experienced project management team w/ track record. Sectors such as oil and gas, renewable energy (wind, solar, bio fuels) infrastructure (airports, hospitals, marinas, ports) large scale property developments, be it commercial, high rise, residential, industrial or leisure etc. are of interest. All countries with stable economies and Government will be considered.

We are seeking global projects in these SECTORS that require design build, funding referral:

marina, zoological park, eco-tourism, supermarket chain, convenience store, gas station, theme park, motorsport, restaurant, franchise, race track, indoor snow ski, snowdome, casino, amusement, hotels, transit, railroad, monorail, ship, seaport, ports, terminal, golf, shopping mall, airport, urban entertainment center, office complex, high rise, central business district, electric power, college, recreation, waterpark, movie production set, experiential museum, dinner theatre, hospital, other

Please note that in addition to hotel design/construction/management ; we do fully integrated resorts, CBD mixed use developments, short term, long term and permanent residential, family entertainment centers, race tracks, retail, commercial, and office complexes, marinas, ships, boats, steam locomotive, tourist railroads, full infrastructure including waste management, paving, Light Rail Transport and Swiss mono-rail transportation. We also have golf course design and exclusive night golf system. Our networked associates have a proven track record on all aspects of construction and operation which includes theme park design and development.

Our consortium is not only equal to the task, but far superior and without equal. Whilst we are low key we don't seek nor do we want the limelight or high profile publicity. As I may mention, with no disrespect to the hotel chain/flagged operators, our standard of operation and management is far superior to that of Hilton, Conrad, Kimpinski, Mövenpick etc. Our key senior management personnel have been with us for many years having come to us from Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, Hyatt, Westin and one having been the Captain of the SS Norway.

The major differences we operate under are that we do not demand franchise fees, do not irrevocably lock the owner into excessive long term contracts which are not fair or equitable on both parties. We do not demand mandatory high contributions to pool sales & marketing which is ineffective by not benefiting an individual property. Each property retains its individual identity and uniqueness. Standard operating procedures [SOPs] are not generic but are written specifically for each property. We have a depth of senior management from the "top luxury chains" but who have tempered this experience with our unique culture and modus operandi. We provide hospitality from the heart, providing a more cost effective, much more efficient operation.

Our service has a competitive edge on all other management companies, provides greater guest satisfaction, loyalty and repeat guests, higher staff satisfaction and stability resulting in a higher ROI for the owner.

The point I emphasis, is that whilst we are most efficient, cost effective and amenable to negotiation, we are in the luxury market, do not cut corners, do not deviate from our terms and conditions nor do we drop our fees or standards. If an owner wishes to proceed, they must provide an up-front advance on costs to mobilize or we just do not proceed.

Most sincerely yours in hospitality,
Roy Propsner, Director general

One of our senior project directors is now completing assignment with Disney Anaheim.
One of our senior project managers is located in Florida.
We offer to send bio of one or more of our hotel development managers.

James is the NBA's biggest endorsement star thanks to deals with Nike, McDonald's, Coca-Cola, State Farm and others. He signed a deal to promote Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins in Asia in March. It was his first big endorsement deal since he partnered with Fenway Sports Management in 2011 to oversea his marketing career.
