Turks and Caicos
Salas O’Brien overcame challenges to deliver highly efficient design for the Ritz-Carlton’s luxury hotel and residences on world-famous Grace Bay. Our work encompassed mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems and involved creative water treatment processes to accommodate the unique needs of the island destination.
Ritz-Carlton: the name is synonymous with luxury. Their 91 hotels and resorts in 30 countries and territories are paradigms of first-class service, and the brand’s new hotel in the Turks and Caicos Islands is no exception. The islands’ fine white sand beaches and perpetually sunny weather are just a 90-minute flight from Miami, and the destination has been experiencing tremendous success and growth in recent years.
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.
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.
Our designs helped the Ritz-Carlton maximize the efficiency of its systems and infrastructure so it can serve its residents and guests in the immaculate fashion the brand consistently promises and delivers worldwide.
