Vanguard Hotels Appoints Pure Projects to Oversee Regional Project Management

09 January 2013 Vanguard Hotels

Bruce Musick, CEO of Vanguard Hotels with Peter Coney, Managing Director of Pure Projects


Vanguard Hotels Pte Ltd, Singapore, is pleased to announce the appointment of Pure Projects, as Regional Project Manager for all of its hotel projects. Pure Projects was selected after a lengthy review of the company’s internal development system and after consideration of several comparable companies across Asia.

Pure Projects is a specialist project management service provider, with offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India. Pure Projects provides comprehensive professional project management services across all commercial property sectors. Clients include Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, for retail design and tenancy coordination, Emirates Resorts, Siam Future Developments, for Mega Bangna Mall, one of Asia’s largest, IKEA and Leading Hotels Limited.

Bruce Musick, CEO, Vanguard Hotels, “Peter and his team have demonstrated unequaled commitment to the process of supporting our goals and a keen awareness of the need to work closely as a team to achieve our aims. We are delighted to have Pure Projects on-board as we gear up for a significant rollout programme in the next few years.”

Peter Coney, Managing Director, Pure Projects, “We are excited about the association with Vanguard Hotels and what this means for our growing Asian business. The Vanguard team are focused and determined to implement their Asian strategy and we are privileged to be part of that team.”

Pure Projects will oversee the project management function for all hotel developments across all markets. Pure Projects will act as project and program managers on behalf of Vanguard Hotels and be the single point of contact for project communications. Where it makes sense to use local country-specific project managers, Pure Projects will oversee these entities. Pure Projects reports to Vanguard Hotels’ senior officers directly to ensure the business interests and commercial objectives of Vanguard Hotels are upheld throughout all aspects of project delivery. Of importance, they will be seen to be the representative for Vanguard Hotels for each project at the technical level.

For project management and integration, Pure Projects is to customise internal quality assurance and business management system (BMS) specifically to the requirements of Vanguard Hotels. Following start-up, Pure Projects will coordinate with Vanguard and relevant consultants to develop a ‘Design & Development Manual’. This document will set benchmark requirements and ensure clear visibility for Vanguard management on how projects will be delivered, when documents are issued, etc. Pure Projects will provide their proprietary project management system (PMS) which will be tailored to meet Vanguard requirements.

For best practices for constructability/buildability, Pure Projects is to drive the coordination and recommendations on how to deliver best practices for cost effective construction techniques and methodologies for hotel construction. These recommendations are to be evaluated on a project-by-project basis and typically relate to the type of building materials used, procurement options, construction staging and use of new technologies within specific regions. Pure Projects is to champion this strategy and ensure an effective and realistic rollout across all projects.

Peter Coney, Managing Director, will oversee the business for Pure Projects. Peter has over 35 years of experience in the consulting and construction industry. Peter has a proven track record in the industry having previously worked as a CEO and Senior Executive for ASX listed consultancies in Australia. Peter has a track record of successfully delivering high profile developments.

Pure Projects has nominated Mike Armstrong to undertake the initial project manager’s role in the Philippines supported by Peter Coney. This engagement is targeted to commence end of January
