The purpose of this document is to provide direction to the opening team in expediting
and simplifying the acceptance and turnover process of guestrooms and guest floors
from the contractor to the owner for the installation of FF&E. By working with the
owner in this acceptance process, we can expect to reduce the time required to punch
list or snag the rooms and give the contractor the information required to bring the
guestrooms and floors up to a standard to which Fairmont Hotels & Resorts can accept.
By establishing these standards and criteria with the owner and contractor well in
advance of turnover, it is likely that most deficiencies can be corrected during the
initial snag, thus allowing the owner to accept rooms that will require minimal
additional work to achieve Fairmont Hotels & Resorts Standards.
The typical acceptance process has the owner, architects and various consultants
inspecting the guestrooms and guest floors and identifying deficiencies or variances to
the project specifications. A punch list is developed and issued to the contractor for
his action. This punch list becomes a road map for the contractor and once complete
allows the owner to accept the owner to accept the room for the installation of FF&E.
Upon completion of the FF&E installation, the owner offers the room to Fairmont
Hotels & Resorts for final acceptance. The Fairmont Hotels & Resorts operations team
then re-inspects the room and issues a second punch list of deficiencies which the
owner must have corrected.
The difficulty usually lies in that additional architectural deficiencies are identified at
this stage by Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, which could have and should have been
identified in the initial inspection. Typically, the contractor is reluctant to perform
additional work after the owner has accepted the room. This does not include damage
to the room as a result of this FF&E installation. Repair to rooms that have been
damaged by the installation of FF&E is handled as a separate repair program by the
owner and would be a billable repair by the contractor.
Therefore, the goal of this program and its procedures is to minimize the number of
architectural deficiencies identified in the second snag.

3.2.

Model Rooms
The Model Rooms once completed and approved for their architecture, finishes, MEP
and FF&E, shall serve as the standard that the contractor must meet in all guestrooms.
The snagging process shall focus on variances in the guestrooms being turned over
from the approved model room. Where the guestroom conforms substantially to the
model rooms architecturally, the snagging process should be limited to finishes, FF&E
and MEP items.

CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS

Procedures
The Hotels Director of Engineering, the Fairmont Design and Construction Manager,
and the FF&E Coordinator will all participate in the initial snagging of a representative
sample of guestrooms along with the owners representatives, the architect, consultants
and the general contractor. The purpose of this joint effort is to establish a standard for
both the contractor and the owners representatives who will perform the majority of
the snagging.
It is the intention of this program that Fairmont Hotels & Resorts participate in the
initial snagging of about 5% of the guestrooms.
The tools required for snagging are:

Small torpedo level


Electric socket tester
Tape measure
Snag checklist
Model room manual

The room will be reviewed from two perspectives.


1. Architecturally
Doors and Hardware
Window millwork
Finishes, fixtures and accessories
2. Mechanical, Electric and Plumbing
HVAC
Plumbing fittings and fixtures
Lighting and power
All punch list items are to be detailed in written format according to the above
categories. Each item is to be numbered and the deficiency clearly identified using
reference to the model room manual as necessary.
Attached is a sample punch list, which can serve as a model.

be in a metal or PVC conduit, all conduits to be sized 20% larger than minimum recommended
size for number of cable runs. Where conduit is not provided, cable shall be plenum rated
where regulation require.
a)

Voice:
All voice cables in meeting rooms, pre-function rooms and main Meeting room
corridors shall terminate on a patch panel close to the meeting space or located in
an A/V control room near the meeting space. This will permit the hotel to patch a
variety of services to any meeting room.
All guest room voice (telephone, fax, modem) wiring will terminate as practical
on intermediate distribution frames supporting the voice cabling for the building.
Guest room voice and modem/fax lines will run live to the telephone switch. All
guest room modem wiring will terminate on a patch panel (unless otherwise
specified) to be located in the PBX/PABX switch room to permit switching of
ISDN to guest rooms. See later section describing the patch panel requirements.
Administration and back of house voice (telephone, fax, modem) wiring will
terminate as practical on intermediate distribution frames arranged to support the
cabling on a given administration floor or area. It may be more practical to route
such cabling direction to the telephone switch room; however, the intent is to
design a cabling structure that minimizes the total amount of cable and conduit
required to keep costs down while adhering to the operating requirements of the
hotel.
Voice riser cable or backbone cable (cable that links the intermediate distribution
frames to the main distribution frame in the switch room) shall be run from each
intermediate distribution frames to the main distribution frame in the telephone
switch room utilizing 25,50, 100 or 200 pair bundles of category enhanced

Testing Requirements
UTP System Testing
a)
b)

There are two primary field test parameters for an UTP-based end-to-end cabling
system. These are continuity/wire mapping and a visual inspection, both to be
performed by the vendor.
Continuity/wire mapping is used to verify consistency pair-to-pin terminations at
each end of a given cable. It also checks for faulty connections in the run. For each
of the eight conductors in the cable, continuity/wire mapping indicates:
Continuity of the channel to the remote end.
Shorts between any two or more conductors.
Crossed pairs.
Reversed pairs.
Split pairs.
Any other mis-wiring.

Optical Fiber System Testing


a)
b)

c)

There is one primary field test parameter for an optical fiber-based end-to-end
system. This is attenuation testing, to be performed by the Vendor.
Since optical signal attenuation at one wavelength is independent of the attenuation
at a second wavelength, the attenuation of the channel should be measured at both
standard wavelengths (850 nm and 1300 nm) for backbone links. Either wavelength
can be used for the testing of horizontal links.
Optical fiber field-test light sources must operate within 820-880 nm and/or 12801320 nm wavelength range(s) for multimode system testing.

Additional UTP System Testing


All the parameters per TIA/EIA TSB67 must be verified using a Level II accuracy field tester.
TIA/EIA TSB67 defines two post-installation test configurations for UTP telecommunications
cabling systems designed in accordance with ANSI/TIA/EIA-568 requirementsa channel test
configuration and a basic link test configuration. The required test configuration for this end-toend structured cabling system is the channel configuration as all the components and all
possible sources of installation error are included in the testing.

Presidential Suites living/dining area:
15 - 20 ft2 per person
Two bedroom suite living/dining area:
15 - 20 ft2 per person
One bedroom suite living/dining area:
4 persons
The preliminary lighting and power load estimate used in corridor areas typically range between
35 45 w/10 ft2.

B)

The lighting and power loads in office areas typically range between 30-55
w/10 ft2 for lighting with electronic ballasts and 55-75 w/10 ft2 for lighting with standard
ballasts.

C)

The cooling load for Fitness Center exercise rooms should be calculated based on a fully
occupied room with guests doing a vigorous workout. The Spa and Fitness Center lighting and
power loads should range between 30-55 w/10 ft2. However, for the exercise rooms located
within the Fitness Center, lighting and power loads typically range between 100-160 w/10 ft2.
This is primarily due to the heat generated from the number of exercise machines located in
these rooms.

D)

The activity level for each person is a function of the usage for the specific area served. A
substantially greater quantity of heat is dissipated in activities like dancing or exercising as
opposed to sedentary type of activities. ASHRAE Standard 55-1992 should be followed.
