Leisuretex Painting Contractors have completed painting works to Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane recently opened March 3, 2014.
The 32 storey building fronting 99-103 Mary Street is the “first internationally branded, new-build hotel property launched in [Brisbane] in the last 10 years.”
The hotel caters for both business and leisure travellers with 200 typical guest rooms (each an average of 27 square meters in size) over 28 levels, one level of suites, an all-day dining restaurant, a café bar, 200 square meters of function space and a flood resistant car park.
Our works included painting of the exterior using swinging stage and abseil painting, internal painting of all areas of the hotel using various styles and techniques, rendering and wallpapering.
Walking through the lobby construction zone at Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane the Leisuretex Painting Contractors staff have painted the front lobby ceiling black with white walls, ensuring the edging between the two colours is seamless. Timber soffits are then installed over the black accentuating the colours in the timber and giving a luxurious, contemporary look. The lobby also has a feature curved wall which was rendered and then white set.
A textured membrane was painted onto the exterior of the 32 storey building using swinging stages and abseil painting. The swinging stages are set up from the top of the building in an area restricted to only our Operations Manager and the Safety Officer onsite. More importantly set up with our swinging stage ropes and pulleys are our rope recovery lines. When staff are painting from the swinging stage boats, they are all harnessed with rope lines that are secured to the building separately. In the extremely unlikely event that one of the boats would fall, our painters would be safe.
The Leisuretex Painting Contractors staff working at these heights have undergone comprehensive training including Working Safely at Heights, Swinging Stage and Rope Access training. We also have staff onsite trained in rope recovery. Safety is always our first priority at Leisuretex Painting Contractors, and standing at the top of The Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane looking at where our staff are working from you can fully appreciate why!
The painting completed by Leisuretex Painting Contractors on each floor is stunning! The hallways have black ceilings cut in to white walls, the doors are painted black on the outward face with the rest of the door gloss white, giving the hallways the look of opulence without being overpowering inside the rooms.
In each room there is generally about 3 different colours painted: the ceilings are white, the walls a shade of tan with black features. The bathrooms are painted white giving the room a fresh and modern feel.
In the Commercial Kitchen and Restaurant the ceiling has been painted in two sections. As a full commercial kitchen must be entirely washable, high gloss paint must be used on the ceilings. However, high gloss paint is not suitable across the entire restaurant. As such Leisuretex Painting Contractors project manager had a joiner installed in the ceiling between the commercial kitchen and the restaurant. He then painted the edges between the high gloss white in the kitchen and the matte white used throughout the restaurant and bar.
‘The Eatery’, Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane’s “lively all-day dining restaurant, [serving] great home-style food in a relaxed, modern atmosphere” was wallpapered using a bright coloured floral pattern which has then been complemented with bright furnishings. In the function rooms a more subtle grey wallpaper has been used. Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane also has a small cafe bar ‘Wrapped’ “located on the lobby level, [that] provides many grab-and-go options throughout the day, including fresh coffee, grilled paninis, sandwiches, and yummy cakes and pastries. In the evening, the area transforms into a quaint wine bar, where you can enjoy an ice-cold beer from our Best Brews™, a refreshing cocktail, or a glass from [their extensive international wine list.”
All in all the newly constructed Hotel looks fantastic and with the added Gym and Outdoor Entertaining Areas I think you can agree it is definitely worth a visit!
