Newmarket Hotel, Brisbane:
The Newmarket Hotel is a popular centre for sports enthusiasts and those who enjoy an evening’s trivia or gaming entertainment in a pub atmosphere. In addition, the Newmarket Hotel provides comfortable accommodation, conference rooms and great dining experiences. When the owners of the Newmarket Hotel decided to work on the establishment’s external and internal appeal in 2018, they contacted McAuliffe.
The Newmarket Hotel has earned its reputation through a combination of competitive prices, an incredible price to quality ratio, and something always going on throughout the day, evening and early hours. Owing to its popularity as an entertainment location, hotel and conference area, together with its location right on the busy Newmarket Road, McAuliffe’s rope access skills really made a difference. The constant footfall, long into the night, meant there were no ‘quiet’ times to complete the work. By using our rope access skills, the establishment could continue to enjoy ‘business as usual’, while internal work was carried out in sections using the correct warning signage to alert visitors and staff to newly painted areas.
As the paint specifications and colour schemes had already been decided upon by the architect all we had to do was carry out the work. Our team’s abseiling skills meant we were able to reach areas above the gantry without needing to close the road. Naturally, this made a huge difference to hotel operation and further simplified the painting process for all involved.
For us, this was a straightforward task requiring the right preparation work and beautifully applied paintwork and wood stains, both of which come as standard with McAuliffe painters. Rope access skills meant even the most inaccessible areas were correctly treated, while our friendly and hardworking team fitted in well with the hospitality setting, adding their own high standards of customer services to that of the Newmarket Hotel.
The Project included
- Complete interior and exterior painting/staining
- Complete removal of existing exterior paint coatings and repaint
The many visitors to the hotel during the course of our work meant we received a lot of positive comments on a daily – usually hourly – basis. You will agree that the final finish lifts both the exterior of the Newmarket Hotel and its comfortable and contemporary interior.
