Zircon Flooring – The BodyHoliday project.
This unique refurbishment project specified and completed by Zircon Flooring represents a totally new departure for this family-run company and our first venture into international operations. This was a very special commission, entrusted to Zircon Flooring following months of negotiations, site reconnaissance and careful planning, breathing new life and bringing the highest standards of hygiene to a world leading food preparation area serving one of the world’s most iconic lifestyle destinations. The hotel in question is BodyHoliday St Lucia, owned by Sunswept Resorts, set on a secluded cove of white sandy beach at the edge of the Caribbean Sea and surrounded by tropical gardens and rainforest. BodyHoliday Saint Lucia is the ultimate getaway for body and mind, recognised as one of the finest destination resorts and a centre of well-being. Work carried out by Zircon Flooring was part of a $20 million renovation, completed just in time for the property’s 30th anniversary. With six five star five star restaurants designed to satisfy every taste with menus that feature locally-sourced foods and ingredients fresh from the resort’s own organic garden, the kitchens are one of the focal areas of the hotel. Covering an area in excess of 250m2 and subdivided into sections including an allergy kitchen, bringing these areas up to standard was an integral part of the refurbishment plan, and Zircon Flooring played a pivotal role in helping the hotel to achieve their aesthetic and operational objectives. The end result is a clean, fresh and practical flooring system, using resin flooring to its best advantages, successfully transforming what was a tired and jaded food preparation area into a bright, airy space reflecting the calibre and high standard of the food served.
