The builder working on a hotel project in central Gladstone, Queensland insisted on using only Western Red Cedar for the timber’s ability to withstand harsh environments.

A local favourite, the Reef Hotel Gladstone features quality accommodation, restaurant, bar, regular live entertainment and roof top pool with city views. However, the hotel needed to be refurbished to create a more modern and striking look, inside and out.

The builder chose to work with Western Red Cedar for its proven ability not to cup, twist, warp or lift in harsh environments. The Channel profile from Cedar Sales measuring 120mm x 26mm was specified for the application thanks to its smooth, flat face and square, clean finish. A superior performer, Channel will maintain its sharp profile for years to come.
