PARK HYATT HOTEL
The Park Hyatt Hotel is located in Toronto’s vibrant Yorkville neighbourhood. With upscale boutiques, Victorian- era homes and chic restaurants, the Park Hyatt also neighbours’ world-class institutions like the Royal Ontario Museums and the University of Toronto’s St George Campus. The landmark property recently underwent a major renovation to its grand bones, which include the revitalisation of a busy covered driveway that provides vehicle access to the building.
The design team selected UCC Group to install the ROMEX RSG system to secure the granite paving in place and ensure a fresh modern feel whilst maintaining ties with the heritage of the building.
The project stakeholders intended to renovate the space with a long term, safe, frost and de-icing salt resistance paved surface to take the constant vehicle loading. UCC Group’s successful track record of installing ROMEX products on major projects led to our “Romex System Guarantee” paving system comprising of D1 Jointing Mortar, Adhesion Elutriant bonding agent and Trass Bed drainage mortar being selected for the project. The longevity of the surface was guaranteed by our market leading 10-year manufacturer’s warranty and 50 year+ project life expectancy.
- De-icing salt resistant as the hotel lobby will see a lot of salting through Toronto’s harsh winter
- Frost resistance so rapid freeze thaw cycles do not cause frost to the paving assembly.
- Durable system able to withstand constant vehicle loading.
- Low maintenance as to not interrupt the hotel users.
With the busy nature and surface challenges of hotels such as the Park Hyatt in Toronto, our “RSG” system was the clear choice to secure the hotel’s new paving surface for years to come. Shutdowns and maintenance often cause huge headaches for properties such as the Park Hyatt, which can now all be avoided thanks to the long term, resilient and low maintenance nature of the ROMEX RSG paving solution. The new installation will ensure the patrons and owners can enjoy the peace of mind of a highly functional paving system for decades to come and truly realising the great long-term return on investment provided by the RSG system.
