Hotels & Resorts Projects

  1. 1. RESORTS OBMI
  2. 2. INTRODUCING OBMI With more than seven decades of comprehensive experience, offices throughout the world, and an extensive portfolio of professional services, OBM International has positioned itself as a highly prestigious design-consulting firm, specializing in master planning and architectural design services for the development of mixed-use residential and resort destinations. OBMI, past and present, is a leader in design excellence. OBM International serves clients worldwide through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, OBM Miami Inc. and OBM Limited. OBMI is a privately held, employee-owned firm, whose directors practice a participative management philosophy. This combination produces an active interest and involvement on the part of each employee-owner in the performance of our firm and in the success of each project. Through the years, we have provided the creative and technical foundation for landmark projects worldwide. This success can be attributed to our integrity, dedication and loyal clients. We are a team of experienced and innova- tive professionals, passionate and hardworking in our endeavors. Our mission is to meet every new challenge with OBMI’s founding ideals — helping our clients fulfill their dreams while reaching their financial goals. Individually and collectively, we are committed to helping our clients: • Interpret and clarify visions - through total client involvement • Fulfill dreams - through innovative and creative design solutions • Produce responsible projects - by celebrating the environment • Ensure smooth-flowing projects - with proper project management • Reduce costs and maximize profits - by utilizing our construction expertise • Determine optimum project location - by in-depth site analysis and feasibility studies • Enhance the desirability and value of real estate - through financially viable designs • Introduce the right team players - by tapping into our established industry contacts OBMI MIAMI & madrid OBMI Miami and OBMI Madrid are full-service offices with a total team of 30 professionals, including architects, planners, designers and the support personnel. OBMI’s professional team is small enough to ensure each client a personalized service and direct access to the office leaders and to our CEO, Doug Kulig, who works out of Miami. At the same time, our clients benefit from our ability to draw experience and support from our other regional offices as needed and as appropriate to each project. All OBMI projects east of the Atlantic will be elaborated by our group of professionals in Madrid, with support from OBMI’s Miami office. For projects in the Caribbean and Latin America, OBMI’s Miami office will take the lead, with support from the Madrid and Caribbean offices.
  3. 3. OBMI DESIGN PHILOSOPHY True destinations occupy special places in our hearts and minds. That’s why places as different as South Beach in Miami, the Wharf in San Francisco, Cannes on the Riviera, or Lago di Como in Northern Italy, are popular destinations for so many people. A true place immediately conjures up unique feelings and mental images. For those of us in the business of creating new places – a setting for new perspectives, discoveries and experiences – there is no greater reward than crafting a place that is authentic, unique and incomparably marketable. The OBMI founders made a choice early on to focus on the Caribbean region and to specialize in resort design and development. Our founder, Wil Onions – a legend in his own time – felt it was incumbent on him and his partners to provide an architectural language that was expressive and representative of Bermudian culture. The legacy that he left behind lives in the standards he set for cultural sensitivity, functionality and attention to detail. More than seven decades later and heeding the principle of cultural authenticity, our firm has grown into one of the premier hospitality design firms throughout the world. With offices spread across Bermuda, the Caribbean, the United States and Europe, our team offers a full set of master planning and architectural design services to clients worldwide. As architects and planners, we recognize that we have an opportunity, or better yet, a responsibility to preserve and enhance the very essence of a site. OBMI’s success is based on the fundamental principle of em- bracing the very culture, history and heritage of a specific place, allowing those resources to dictate the design path taken. OBMI TECHNOLOGICAL CAPABILITIES OBMI enjoys extensive computing capabilities in design, production and information technology (IT) sup- port. We have a wide array of software programs, including AutoCAD, ArchiCAD, Sketch-Up, Piranesi, Maxwell, 3D studio and PhotoShop. Our design and production staff relies on AutoCAD and Sketch-Up for daily tasks, as these are company-wide production platforms. AutoCAD is our standard input and export extension for consultant and client coordination. Our team also produces high quality 3D images with Maxwell Render, artistic renderings with Piranesi and a wide variety of graphic images using Photoshop. We have the ability to create movies of our designs but hire consultants when large scale, virtual reality needs arise. Our corporate IT department provides outstanding service and maintenance of our systems and communi- cations throughout our operations offices worldwide. OBMI keeps current with technological advances and periodically makes serious hardware capital investments. All offices utilize high-powered computers, monitors, plotters and data transfer technologies. Our machines are upgraded and/or replaced on a continual basis. At the time of purchase, they have the highest performance specifications available. Our staff members also receive training continually on new programs or innovations so to ensure we are keeping pace with current world markets. OBMI is fully committed to the utilization of hardware, software and technology developments in order to maintain our leading-edge status.
  4. 4. SUSTAINABLE BUILDING DEVELOPMENT OBMI has a strong commitment to responsible environmental stewardship. By observing the USGBC LEED Pro- gram and other systems of green building certification, we can incorporate innovative design and environmental principles to achieve a triple effect on the bottom line: increased profits, increased ecological awareness, and increased health of guests and staff. Energy efficiency and use of technologies, such as solar and wind power, can reduce the burden on local utilities. The capturing of rainwater and the treatment of site grey water will further increase profits and self-sufficiency, while reducing the burden on local supplies. Careful attention to building siting and orientation, choice of construction materials and control of waste can reduce the negative impact of human intervention. Application of these and other concepts will allow the project to both mini- mize the detrimental aspects of construction and increase greatly the long-term life cycle costs. OBMI’s focused attention to sustainable development ensures that the project’s natural potential is maximized.
  5. 5. HISTORY OF OBMI Founded in 1936 in Bermuda by Wilfred Onions and Valmer Bouchard, the original Onions Bouchard, Architects designed private residences from which developed the influential “cottage style,” now so characteristic of the island. Recognized as the revival architect of Bermuda, Wil Onions gave all the charm and ambiance of the old Bermuda cottages to his designs, including chimney moldings, push-out shutters, strengthening buttresses, Flemish gables, and limewashed roofs. In the 1950’s, OBMI expanded its growing reputation into the commercial sector. John Edgar McCulloch joined the company and began opening offices in the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, St. Maarten, Antigua, and St. Kitts. In addition, these offices also carried out projects in Turks & Caicos, Anguilla, Jamaica, Montser- rat and the U.S.Virgin Islands. His inspiration was instrumental in OBMI’s influence on economic development throughout the Caribbean. In the mid 1990’s, the company began operations in the Turks & Caicos Islands and opened business develop- ment offices in the United Kingdom, and later in Spain. In 1998 the Miami office was established to serve the needs of our clients in Europe, the United States and Latin America. Its focus is on architecture, interior design, hotel and resort design development, town planning and urban design services.
