Hotel chief engineers manage the maintenance staff and ensure that hotel facilities and systems operate properly. Accordingly, chief engineers may work in both an office setting, scheduling workers on repair assignments, as well as in the field, solving air-conditioning or other system malfunctions. Aside from maintenance duties, these professionals may also be responsible for coordinating with contractors on renovations, remodels, and new construction.
Duties for a Hotel Chief Engineer
The primary duty of a hotel chief engineer is to ensure the smooth daily operation and guest appeal of the hotel. Within the hotel, chief engineers may direct the maintenance staff on small repairs, such as patching drywall, fixing faulty wiring, or unclogging drains. More complex problems may require the chief engineer to consult blueprints or product manuals in order to fix boilers or air-conditioning motors. Chief engineers may also assign staff to repair sprinklers or instruct grounds crew to maintain outside landscaping.
Hotel chief engineers may also act as managers of maintenance workers, and these professionals hire, train, and mentor staff. For example, a chief hotel engineer may train a worker on how to properly install a faucet. Additionally, hotel chief engineers may evaluate a staff member's cumulative performance, noting areas for improvement. Lastly, hotel chief engineers budget material and labor expenses and submit these assessments to the hotel manager.
