An Introduction to Hotel Engineering

Hotel Engineering, Building Engineering, Hotel Construction, Property Engineering

The following information is intended to provide a cursory overview of hotel engineering with the hope that it will give you an enlightened sense of perspective.

The role and mandate of any property engineering department is the protection of the building owner’s assets; the structure from the façade or building envelope, to the integrity of the floors, walls, ceilings and all of the furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) contained therein. This includes the electrical transformers and the distribution throughout, the domestic water distribution and sewage, the heating-ventilation-air conditioning system (HVAC), the fire alarm system and fire safety components, the vertical transportation system (elevators), the property surroundings like parking, landscaping and pest control, utility management such as electrical, gas, steam and water, kitchen and laundry equipment, lighting and sound systems and on and on.

Hotel Lobby, Hotel Guest Lobby, Hotel Furniture, Bellman Equipment

Hotels are much more extensive and demanding than any standard properties. The engineering department has the responsibility for everything in the building as well. Depending on the organisational structure of the hotel, some elements are assigned to other departments. The Security or Loss Prevention department may take on the task of fire systems but ultimately this is the responsibility of the engineering department as the building operators to monitor for regulatory compliance.

Hotel Kitchen, Busy Kitchen, Kitchen Equipments, Chefs, Commercial Kitchen

Hotels have often been given the analogy of a cruise ship or a hospital in that the operation is 24 x 7. Twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. When guests are sound asleep, the systems of the building continue to operate. The heating and ventilation units keep running, the domestic hot water is being heated, the laundry may be operating, the night cleaners making their rounds, desk clerks and night auditors all doing what they have to do. Behind the scenes, there is a flurry of activities, and everything has to work so that everyone can perform their functions and the guests are safe and comfortable.

Hotel Room, In Room Service, Housekeeping Department, Hotel Guest Room

Without minimising the contribution of other departments, of which there may be as many as ten or more, the bottom line is if there is no engineering department there is no hotel. Take away those services like hot water or elevators, heating or cooling, electricity, kitchen equipment, laundry equipment, hotel articles, etc. you simply would have no customers. When everything is working the next most significant department of course is housekeeping whose efforts keep the property clean and attractive, ensuring guests comfort in their rooms. Removing a restaurant from the system will not close a hotel, or closing the bar or lounge will not cause a hotel to cease operations. Again, all departments should contribute to a seamless operation where guest comfort, safety and satisfaction are paramount.

Induction Technology is Making a Buzz

We heard a lot of buzz going on about the next best thing in the Food & Beverage industry: Cooking with induction cook top equipments. Induction cooking is not a radical brand new technology – it has long been widely used around the world, both by professionals and homeowners. But in the last few years this technology has improved so much and the costs have simultaneously dropped so much as well. This leads to the proliferation of the use of induction technology, not only for commercial cooking but also in home industry.

Chef Cooking with Induction Technology

Unlike traditional cooking methods that involve either chemical like gas, wood, coal or electric, to generate and transfer the heat to the cooking vessels, induction cooking does not involve generating heat. Induction technology makes the cooking vessel itself the original generator of the cooking heat.

How does an induction cooker do that? Put simply, an induction-cooker element (what on a gas stove would be called a “burner”) is a powerful, high-frequency electromagnet, with the electromagnetism generated by sophisticated electronics in the “element” under the unit’s ceramic surface.

Induction Cooking Process Flow Diagram

When a good-sized piece of magnetic material, such as, a cast-iron skillet is placed in the magnetic field that the element is generating, the field transfers (“induces”) energy into that metal. That transferred energy causes the metal – the cooking vessel – to become hot. By controlling the strength of the electromagnetic field, we can control the amount of heat being generated in the cooking vessel and we can change that amount instantaneously.

Ellane & Chefer are specialists in induction cooking and commercial kitchen equipments. If you have any inquiry regarding this, please feel free to contact one of our consultants who will be able assist you further.

Happy Chinese New Year 2011

Happy Chinese New Year 2011, The Year of the Rabbit

Gong Xi Gong Xi… Gong Xi Fat Chai !! The year 2011 is year of the Rabbit in Chinese Lunar Calendar, which falls on February 03, 2011. If you celebrate Chinese New Year, we hope you enjoy much of the celebration as a family affair, a time of reunion and thanksgiving.

A placid year, very much welcomed and needed after the ferocious year of the Tiger. We should go off to some quiet spot to lick our wounds and get some rest after all the battles of the previous year. Good taste and refinement will shine on everything and people will acknowledge that persuasion is better than force.

Happy Chinese New Year 2011, The Year of the Rabbit

Chinese New Year starts with the New Moon on the first day of the new year and ends on the full moon 15 days later. The 15th day of the new year is called the Lantern Festival, which is celebrated at night with lantern displays and children carrying lanterns in a parade.

Last but not least, on behalf of Ellane and Chefer, we wish you and your family a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous 2011 !!

Baking the Perfect Belgian Waffles

You may have been looking for a great Belgian Waffle recipe for a long time. Almost all of the ones we tried were good but they were never as good as we knew they could be. A perfect waffle is crispy on the outside and light tender on the inside, we do not want them to become cakey or heavy.

Challenged enough to create a perfect Belgian Waffle? Below is a simple recipe, perfect for occasional treats with our family and friends. Waffles are awesome served with warm maple syrup or our favourite flavours of syrup, topped with sliced fresh berries, bananas and some yummy vanilla ice cream.

Makes 7 Belgian Waffles

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted

Preparation

  • Combine flour, leaveners, salt and sugar and whisk to mix. Add water, egg yolks and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Whisk in melted butter.
  • Beat egg whites in another bowl to stiff peaks, then fold into batter, half at a time.
  • At first, it will seem very lumpy, but keep folding and it will smooth out.
  • Warm up your Ellane Belgian Waffle Baker and pour the waffle batter into it. Bake for approximately 5 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve hot with fresh sliced strawberries, blueberries, bananas, warm syrup and vanilla ice cream.

Happy Idul Fitri 1431 H

Selamat Idul Fitri 1431 H Mohon Maaf Lahir dan Batin

“Hari Raya Idul Fitri 1431 H” is just around the corner, and it is unusual if we do not send greeting cards to our friends, colleagues, partners and families. Lebaran cards used to be sent through traditional mail but now surely it is not the only medium proven to be the trend anymore. Apart from sending greetings from our mobile through sms, sending greetings via Facebook or email is also becoming the more popular and convenient medium these days.

Having said that, on behalf of all directors and staff of PT. Dinamika, we would like to humbly and wholeheartedly say the following to those that celebrate this festive season:


“Selamat Idul Fitri”
“1 Syawal 1431 H”
“Minal Aidin Wal Fa’idzin”
“Mohon Maaf Lahir & Batin”
