Hotel chief engineers supervise the operation, maintenance, and repair of hotel equipment, tools, and facilities. They generally oversee the maintenance staff and may work in both an office setting and on the property, addressing HVAC and other types of issues. In addition to maintenance duties, these professionals may also work with contractors to coordinate renovations, remodeling projects and new construction. Typically, hotel chief engineers have at least a high school diploma; but more often they hold an associate’s degree in building maintenance or equivalent work experience.
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 manage maintenance workers and participate in hiring, training and mentoring 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.
