Novotel North Beach Wollongong

Location: North Beach Wollongong

Client requirements

The Novotel is perched right on North Beach – Wollongong that close you are breathing beautiful Pacific Ocean air with extensive views of the beautiful coastline.
The Novotel has a stretch of Conference/Function Rooms alongside a huge deck that used to be a tennis court. The deck area was used for conferences, weddings and other functions BUT WHAT HAPPENED WHEN IT RAINED – CANCELLED WEDDING – UNHAPPY BRIDE – LOST REVENUE.
Our client needed to make his function area water proof and shelter from the sun – heat. The Novotel owner (Very Handsome Gentleman) needed our advice along with his requirements. The Novotel owner wanted to span 26 meters x 15 meters without a post in the middle...How?

Our Outcome

We suggested our OZTECH HALO – PLAZA All Weather Retractable Roof System and we engineered a self supporting truss to run down the centre of the 26 meter system hence no posts required in the centre/middle of the OZTECH HALO – PLAZA All Weather Retractable Roof System. Having post would be a hazard for guests and hotel staff. We incorporated OZTECH LED LIGHTING a very vibrant mood setting lighting system.
The Novotel now has the largest free-standing Oztech System in Australia with the press of a button on the Oztech remote control you can have a completely open area to a completely sealed roof.

After installation

Having been there at the end of the Oztech installation the Novotel function sales team were bringing out potential wedding goers and corporate conference clients and they were delighted with the area well knowing that no matter what the weather does there function will go on.

Owner, Management and staff comments

Owner, Management and staff commentsOwner was overwhelmed that he could seat 400 guests in any weather conditions within a few weddings and corporate conferences the OZTECH would have paid for itself. Sales staff said the OZTECH system being there made it an easy to sell any function. We have now done 5 other venues for the owner and he thinks the Oztech is the best investment for any alfresco area with its architectural design and function

What we offered

The latest installation of an Oztech retractable pergola is at Bankstown NSW. The area covered was approximately 300 sqm and included 23 Genius drop awnings. The client had wanted to cover his outdoor dining area which was basically unusable during rain and high winds. The installation of the Oztech retractable pergola over 5 days has been proven to be a huge success as now the restaurant can service its patrons at any time in comfort, and not have to worry about the elements.

After installation

The Oztech retractable pergola has now allowed the restaurant to seat an additional 200 people.
During our first visit after installation the restaurant was full to capacity. The Oztech retractable pergola for this restaurant also came with LED lights and gave the restaurant the ambience it needed outside.
The Oztech retractable pergola along with the Genius drop awnings has now given the owner of the restaurant control of the weather. The manager of the restaurant has told us that he expects to pay off the Oztech retractable pergola within 3 months of it installation.
