The Coogee Bay Hotel
The Coogee Bay Hotel makes the most of their beautiful bayside location with a large outdoor pergola area. While the overhead material cover was protecting patrons from the sun, it was
also making the area incredibly humid, sticky, and unbearable to be in during the summer.
Alfresco Spaces installed three Breeze 360 misting fans, dropping the temperature in the pergola area by 15 degrees – leaving it perfectly comfortable all summer, no matter how high the temperature climbs.
The fans have made Coogee Bay Hotel’s space usable 100% of the year, resulting in a great return on their investment – and then some. The results have been so good, the Hotel have decided to install the same fans throughout their entire beer garden as well.
Momento Hospitality Group
The Momento Hospitality Group were struggling to cool down the outdoor and rooftops areas of three of their major venues – Hillside Tavern, Bella Vista, and Governor Hotel. During the
summer visitors weren’t able to enjoy the spaces because of the heat.
The task of cooling was made harder by the size of the spaces and the fact that they were spread throughout the venue, both upstairs and downstairs.
By installing misting systems, Alfresco was able to drop the temperature in each are by between 12-15 degrees.
Since then, staff have commented on the vast difference in the number of visitors they’re receiving. Going from empty rooftops to consistently full ones – they’re now attracting many more customers to all three establishments.
A sizeable and incredibly popular Northern Beaches venue, The Newport is made up of a number of large outdoor areas. To stay open and profitable, they needed them to be
comfortable even on the hottest of days to accommodate all their visitors.
Because of the many spaces that needed to be cooled, Alfresco worked closely with the operator and CEO of Melville Hospitality group, Jason Hemmes, to design the system and set up controlling functions.
There cooling and misting system is now all operated automatically through iPads for ease and speed. The cooler spaces have attracted many more people than ever before, and has even drawn attention from those who want to install them in their own businesses and homes.
Thomas Hotel Group
The Thomas Hotel Group has multiple venues containing gaming rooms, outdoor spaces and smokers’ areas. Legally, these spaces had to be open-air, but they were almost too cold to use
When looking for heating solutions, management at the group knew they needed infrared and radiant heat to ensure visitors would actually be warmed, rather than having the heat be blown away before reaching them.
Alfresco installed our Architectural Series heaters, which produce more heat than any other on the market, and deliver more heat per kilowatt.
Venue visitors are now much happier in the winter – the heaters keep them coming back and staying longer.
Located on Manly Wharf, Hugo’s needed a heating solution that would allow them to offer a comfortable environment even throughout winter.
They wanted electric heaters for efficiency, but did not have a large power capacity. Because of this – and because of their close proximity to water and sea wind – Alfresco installed our Architectural Series heaters..
Not only did these heaters allow them to set the heaters depending on their electricity capabilities, but the marine-grade steel protects the heaters from the elements.
Hugo’s have now been serving visitors comfortably all year round for over 10 years.
Coogee Bay Hotel
In one of the best spots in Sydney, Coogee Bay Hotel has a lot of outdoor space to make use of the wonderful views. However, having a large outdoor area meant that it was often too cold for patrons to use in winter.
Before choosing a heating solution, the Hotel team installed both Alfresco’s Architecture Series heaters and a competitor’s product to compare the results.
Alfresco’s Architectural Series was the clear winner. They are made of marine grade steel, so they can withstand the elements of bayside Coogee. They’re the only heater of their kind on the market – and it also helps that they’re one of the most powerful heaters available.
Coogee Bay Hotel’s outdoor areas are now always usable, regardless of weather and even in the face of cold weather or cool sea breezes.
