Perfect new coat for grande dame
THE work and vision going into the revitalised Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas couldn’t be complete without a fresh lick of paint to top it all off– and Higgins Coatings was just the company to rise to the challenge.
The team at Higgins were behind the huge task of repainting all the 288 internal guestrooms, the external remediation and repainting of the resort including render repairs, water proofing, retexturing and repainting as well as the remediation and repainting of the lagoons which add up to 10,000m2.
“All projects were completed in conjunction with each other and required expertise in ensuring key milestones were met for the client and areas of the resort opened on time,” said Higgins regional manager Darren Ridge.
“At the peak of the project Higgins had employed about 30 trades people, most of whom were local.
“They included painters, apprentices, renderers, cleaners, abseilers and protective coating trades people.”
Mr Ridge said that with their ability to draw on the company from all over Queensland and throughout Australia and New Zealand, Higgins was the ideal candidate for working on the Sheraton Mirage, and has a long list of completed projects in the Far North.
“Higgins provided a cost effective solution with completing the required work; centred around specialised access equipment and methodology in completing the external works.
“Higgins also had the necessary expertise, resources and willingness to do whatever it takes to ensure the project was a success.”
