Premier Project Profile

Stay Easy Hotel

The 125-room Stay Easy Hotel in Maputo was constructed by SS Construções (Moçambique) for Tsogo Sun between April 2017 and April 2018.

Background: The budget-friendly hotel accommodation was built above the parking deck of the new Baia Mall shopping centre, that was also constructed by SS Construções. The delayed start of the hotel project meant that the Baia Mall opened before the hotel did. To ensure public safety the SS Construções team completed the hotel roof a month before time, and the tower crane could be removed.

The Project Scope

SS Construções scope of work for the construction of this six-storey, 125-room hotel included the main contract works as well as the electrical- and wet services installation. The ground floor houses the front of house public facilities, back of house service and the administration facilities. Each of the five guest room floors above consist of 25 rooms per floor. The external facilities include a pool, lounge deck, porte cochère, and the two-bedroomed manager’s flat.

The structure and wet works trades were completed using a conventional Construction Computer Software (CCS) based bar chart programme. However, due to the repetitive nature and the large number of activities in each of the hotel rooms, the construction team switched to using a “line-of-balance” programme to manage the completion and commissioning of 125 rooms. This method provided a valuable record of progress and immediately highlighted any problem areas that required attention.

The client and the design team expressed their genuine satisfaction with the superior quality finished product delivered by SS Construções. Another point that was noted was the professional way the site team interacted with the client and professional team members.
