MULTIPLE stages of Sheraton Mirage - Port Douglas’ revitalisation were undertaken by renowned national construction company Vaughan Constructions, which brought more than 60 years of adaptable experience to the detail-oriented project.
The Far North Queensland project included refurbishing the main lobby, restaurants, bars, cafes, lounges, conference centres and VIP luxury suites. The team behind Vaughan were challenged by the late inclusion of the Country Club regeneration which offers an 18-hole, Peter Thompson designed, golf course and Pro Shop, 24/7 gym, tennis and bar facilities.
Vaughan Constructions director and general manager Andrew Noble said “brand and quality are very important for international five-star resorts, so every effort has been made to ensure the highest quality design, material and finishes have been incorporated. The design has focused on giving guests a luxurious yet relaxed experience.”
The owner of Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas, Fullshare Group, headed by Managing Director Mr Yi Yu, undertook this major investment completed by Vaughan Constructions to ensure guests continue to receive the highest quality luxury hotel experience.
Vaughan has been quietly working away on some of the most significant buildings on Australia’s landscape. The national construction company is often linked to national and multinational companies major capital investments – and now The Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas will be added to this ever-growing list.
Vaughan Constructions was selected to work on the Sheraton Mirage based on proven experience in delivering detailed-oriented projects around Australia, as well as a strong track record of on-time project delivery.
“A successful project is founded on full integration of quality systems, technical expertise, strong management and a positive attitude to deliver a high quality project. We’re sensitive to the requirements and enjoyment of the operators and their guests and the communication between all parties was great,” said Vaughan’s National Construction Manager Joe Picone.
Vaughan Constructions delivered the Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas with all of these attributes, and with their history and experience, the resort remained operational throughout all the work.
"With Australia's tourism spending expected to reach $167bn by 2025, this landmark hotel will be an iconic part of the Australian landscape for years to come, welcoming domestic and international guests to experience the best Australia has to offer" Mr Noble said.
