Coming to the pointy end of the original series of the podcast, our second last episode to be exact. Today’s episode I meet up with Director of BSK Projects, Benedikt Schikora to discuss the services and benefits of engaging a Project Management firm to guide an aspiring brewery owner through the convoluted and intricate nature of a brewery project, from the concept design phase right through to commissioning and opening.
BENEDIKT SCHIKORA FROM BSK PROJECTS
BSK Projects are a highly regarded Project Management firm specialising primarily in hospitality, entertainment and retail sectors both here in Australia and Internationally. Benedict discusses the role of a Project Manager and dives into all the key steps and phases a project like a brewery build goes through and the complexities of each if you were to manage on your own. We also touch on the interior design of a brewery especially the tap room for patrons creating a warming and inviting atmosphere and not just a warehouse with milk crates and a bar.
I thought having Benedikt on the podcast at this stage of the series would be a nice way to tie together all the episodes, topics and learnings to date and discuss how this can be applied to the overall project management of your brewery build.
Having an obsession for information, Chris found that there was a massive gap in his part of the world on how to go about starting a brewery, as well as being delivered in a way to provide a foundation for the layman to understand and act upon it.
