Case Study


Luxury Residences at Turks and Caicos Islands

Ritz-Carlton: the name is synonymous with luxury. Their 91 hotels and resorts in 30 countries and territories are paradigms of first-class service. The Ritz-Carlton at Turks and Caicos, located at world-famous Grace Bay, included the first luxury-branded homes to be built on the islands. A mere 90-minute flight from Miami, and blessed with fine white sand beaches and perpetually sunny weather, Turks and Caicos islands are experiencing tremendous growth and development.

The Ritz-Carlton’s impeccable beachfront property 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 consist of 60 private condominiums—the Ritz-Carlton Residences.

For this ambitious development, Salas O’Brien provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering as well as fire protection design. In order to maintain the unique water requirements for this island site, the Salas O’Brien team implemented creative water treatment processes. The resulting systems maximize efficiency and keep everything running smoothly.

Scheduled for grand opening in 2018, this property will serve its residents and guests in the immaculate fashion that Ritz-Carlton always provides, all of it serviced by highly efficient, state-of-the-art infrastructure.
