Their challenge

This impeccable beachfront property combines the best in luxury hotel accommodation and private residential condominiums—the first luxury-branded homes to be built on the islands. The development consists of three 12-story residential towers, the largest of which is a 122-key Ritz-Carlton hotel. The hotel tower includes a casino, fitness center, restaurant, and a deluxe spa, while the other two towers comprise the 60 private condominiums—the Ritz-Carlton Residences. The systems that service both the hotel and residential areas required sophisticated engineering to accommodate the development’s scale and complexity, and the site’s location caused unique challenges for standard MEP processes.

Our solution

In order to meet the unique water requirements for this island site, the Salas O’Brien team implemented creative water treatment processes in addition to standard engineering design for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems.
