Tackle a multi-site remodel program the right way.
From retail facilities, to hospitality, to convenience stores, to self-storage facilities and more - these 6 points will ensure that your project stays on track.
1. Create a Comprehensive Program for Scale and Consistency
Set a clear scope and responsibilities for all parts of the program.
2. Approach: How to Execute the Remodels
Communicate how construction will impact the site or sites. Determine if vendors will be on-site overnight, after hours, or during store hours. Will all sites remain open?
3. Build a Scalable 5-Star Team
Selecting the right regional and/or national partners for your multi-site remodel is critical.
4. Communication: Avoid Mistakes
Communication is critical throughout the remodel/refresh program. Whether you’re engaging one site or multi-sites, it’s imperative that regular and reliable information is conveyed in a timely manner regarding the construction schedule and any impact to facilities.
5. Use an Interactive Project Management Tool
A customizable, collaborative and easy-to-use online project management tool will enable the entire team to:
•Save and share documents
•Hold team members accountable
•Provide the most accurate information at all times from anywhere
EMG’s ProTrack is a web-based project management tool that is updateable in real time and provides multi-site tracking, secure log-ins, and auto-generated reports.
6. Site Visits: Boots on the Ground
Regular site visits are the best way to verify construction quality, and personally check in with operations and other on-site staff.
