Elements of Byron nears completion, search begins for staff
THE changes at Elements of Byron are massive as the opening date gets closer: And now the search is on to find staff for the coastal resort.
With an average 200 construction workers on site each day and a construction spend of over $5 million per month, Development Director Jeremy Holmes said it was pleasing to see the project nearing completion.
"We have now completely filled the infinity lagoon pool," he said.
"This is such an iconic feature of the resort and it was incredible to see this expanse of water once filled, with its mosaic infinity edges at either end."
Tucked in around the pool is the sunken fire pit, expected to provide an intimate year round gathering space open to the public as well as overnight guests.
The fire bowl, custom made by Murwillumbah's Quatro Design, was recently installed and ignited.
"The connection between the fire and the water is really something," Mr Holmes said.
"This was the intention but really until the components come together you are not entirely sure how the space is going to feel."
The Bayshore Drive roadworks and landscaping are complete.
Within the resort itself more than 50% of the 65,000 native trees and plants brought onsite to help re-establish the natural ecosystems trees have been planted.
Most of the 94 Stage One villas are complete and furniture is now being installed.
The central facilities area curves around the infinity lagoon pool in three separate pavilions, housing two restaurants including a private dining room and outdoor dining terrace, lobby and reception, lobby bar, poolside bar, spa and conference wing.
"The resort spaces are evolving on a daily basis," Mr Holmes said.
"We're all looking forward to revealing and sharing this with locals when we open on February 1st."
The construction of Elements of Byron has generated 350 full time equivalent jobs.
