The Crown Plaza carpark area, pool pump house and lift housings are all below ground level, so Kerr Interiors were commissioned to build strengthened exterior walls to a level above the water level. They also had to fit steel watertight doors to all below-ground rooms and stairwells, watertight service hatches to allow access for cleaning and repairs, and a watertight swing gate to seal off the carpark during flood alerts.
During the process, Kerr Interiors reviewed the drainage system. They carried out repairs, including the installation of non-return valves, to ensure that water wouldn’t return to the hotel from exterior drains. Other services included resurfacing of driveways, levelling of surfaces, and the re-bedding of the block surface.
The project, despite strict timeframes, was completed on-budget and on-time. The client, Clown Plaza Hotel, had their expectations exceeded.
