The Ville Resort Casino redevelopment comprising of the entrance and lobby area, new Miss Songs Restaurant & Quarterdeck Bar with indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the pool and with views of Magnetic Island.
Below Award winning JBM Projects were responsible for the interior
fitout works and bespoke ceiling and wall paneling.
Creating stand out features for developments are all in a days work for award winning JBM Projects, who were commissioned to supply and install custom made elements featured throughout the Ville Resort Casino.
The specialist joinery manufacturer and installer, managed the fitout of the complex’s foyer, Miss Songs restaurant, Quarterdeck, Pavilion and Palm House, using a range of materials to bring an easy tropical luxury to each space.
The main entrance to the casino and foyer ceiling has been adorned with custom wood-panelling, while the Pavilion Conference Centre made use of a special acoustic panelling consisting of 25mm sound-absorbent panels, clad in fabric and set within a white frame.
JBM Projects also managed specialist trades who installed brass works, stonework and steel. This included the brass coping around the Quarterdeck bar, the stone reception desk and brass capping on the staircase leading down to the pool area.
“Since we were the principal contact for the fitout we had to understand all elements of the work which involved a lot of preplanning before we got to site,” Director, Jason McRostie said. The JBM Projects’ team carried out the works in three stages across a year, with crews being on site for several weeks during each stage.
“It was very rewarding building a good relationship with our client and seeing the final outcome of the work,” he said. “We’re all extremely proud of this job.”
JBM Projects specialises in hotel and retail design and installation and in 2017 won a Master Builders Award for Seascape Gold Coast. They have delivered projects around Australia including Woodside Petroleum’s office in Perth, the University of Queensland medical centre and Southside Sports Club. Jason explained it was JBM Projects’ past works, such as the spa and fitness centre at Perth’s Crown Casino Towers, that was essential in them securing the job.
“Our ability to manufacture as well as install is important in maintaining quality,” he said. “We have strong quality assurance processes both from the manufacturing side to the onsite installation, so we can give value for money and maintain a high standard.”
