Resort Manager chooses 138mm walnut, composite decking material as timber alternative for resort upgrade.
Situated in eight and a half acres of peppermint woodlands and gorgeous garden views, Busselton’s Aqua Resort offers self-contained, luxury beachfront accommodation for family gatherings and private getaways.
Earlier this year Luke Waddington, Resort Manager of Aqua Resort, Busselton, sought to replace the existing timber decking around the resort’s main pool and boardwalk area with a composite alternative, eventually settling on Futurewood’s composite decking material, CleverDeck, – The project would take only three weeks to complete.
The existing timber decking within the resort was quite extensive (320m2) and required the removal of the respective decking to check the sub-frame structure and ensure that there was no rotting. Mr Waddington was then tasked with finding a timber alternative that could be successfully placed within the existing decking area – the challenge? The existing decking area was home to two staircases, two ramps, a tree and four limestone walls.
In his search for the right product, Mr Waddington stated, “The product that I was going to choose needed to be non-slip, heat resistant and deal well with high traffic.” Mr Waddington cites Futurewood’s composite decking material’s width and thickness, double-sided features, ability to be sanded down in the event of scratches and light scuff marks, ease of installation and overall look as the leading reasons behind his choice, adding that he would “Definitely recommend Futurewood’s products to everyone… they feel solid underfoot and are very versatile”.
Futurewood’s composite decking material is a low maintenance alternative to your standard timber decking, and with little upkeep required, is a cost-effective option for both domestic and commercial projects like Busselton’s Aqua Resort.
