Willingness from the company to explore how can takt be more widely used in Consti
The hotel renovation included a complete refurbishment of the hotel rooms, including bathrooms. The corridor surfaces were also completely renovated and HVAC systems were installed in the hotel.
How it was done
One of the requirements of the renovation was to minimise operational disruptions of the hotel. This was achieved by using a one-day takt, scheduled and controlled with Mestamaster.
The hotel rooms were renovated with takt time, while the corridors and the construction of the cooling network were managed with traditional methods, taking into account the parallel works which done with takt.
The hotel was temporarily closed due to the Covid19 pandemic, allowing the pace of renovation to accelerate from two rooms to three rooms per day.
"Bonus Inn was a perfect match for takt, repetitiveness between rooms was so obvious, also HVAC and side contractors were exceptionally well boarded into takt schedule. If repetitiveness is this obvious, there's no way traditional production methods could achieve same results financially or quality-wise. This requires commitment from work site management and contractors. Also the customer gets clear benefits from transparency of work tasks' progress.”
