FROM PROBLEM SOLVERS TO PROCESS BUILDERS

WORKING TOGETHER WITH THE SUPPLY CHAIN TO PROMOTE INNOVATION

All data, new openings, and the numerous construction sites across Italy indicate the vibrancy of the hospitality sector. The galaxy of entities involved in this scenario requires specific expertise and relationship management within a process that is inherently design-oriented but undoubtedly intersects with economics and finance. Hence, Starching’s commitment to ensuring that architecture and engineering are essential components of a complex process, where decisions are the dividing line between action and inaction, between excellence and the ‘ordinary’ project.

“Compared to the pre-pandemic period, where funds were primarily invested in projects related to workplace or retail sectors, they are now shifting towards luxury hospitality,” explains Mauro Angeletti, partner, and director at Starching. “Developers and operators in luxury hospitality have specific visions, and often the challenge lies in coordinating these different working realities. The sector is gravitating towards luxury, as evidenced by Starching’s work for Palazzo Tornabuoni in Florence, La Roqqa hotel in Porto Ercole, and the Bulgari Hotel in Rome. Creating luxury hotels in Italy today demands an update of the supply chain and industry, as well as extensive coordination.” Starching’s added value lies in problem-solving. “Our clients entrust us completely; we guide them through all fundamental steps, both relational and technical. Our plus,” Angeletti adds, “is the ability to bring together all the pieces of the project. Controlling and managing time and costs is our guiding principle from start to finish … in between, there’s continuous coordination work and governance that leads us to solve technical challenges.

Starching often partners with international funds investing in Italy for the first time: ‘Professionally, it is gratifying to accompany them on a shared journey. The key to success lies in managing the various worlds revolving around the project: bringing together diverse needs, timelines, and expectations linked to the reputation of all involved actors. Our objective,’ Angeletti concludes, ‘is to manage at all levels, holding together a team that sometimes does not know each other. Occasionally, we manage to get a project back on track that was on the verge of being abandoned before Starching’s involvement. This brings immense satisfaction to the entire team and motivates us to work even more determinedly and effectively.'”
