SAMHI Hotels is India’s premier real-estate developer of hotels, investing in green-field & brown field acquisitions as well as conversion of existing assets throughout the country. SAMHI appointed ASCENTIS in 2011 as its Programme Manager with a comprehensive scope encompassing all project, construction, and cost management disciplines and a single responsibility for all project deliveries. In 2012, SAMHI acquired a plot of land for the construction of the first Hyatt Place hotel in India in the district of Udyog Vihar in Gurgaon, the business satellite city of New Delhi.
Operating within the stringent economics of India’s mid-market hospitality segment and with a tight statutory deadline for opening of the hotel, our team led an extensive value engineering programme on design, materials and construction methods and built a strong contracting team to run 24/7 clockwork construction. The project was delivered and opened to public after a record 22-month construction and was awarded the ‘Best Hotel of the Year’ award in the upscale category at HICSA, the region’s main hospitality conference.
