The Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne - Custom Retractable Canopy
Key Biscayne, FL
This project features a very special set of large retractable canopies for The Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne. The client has a patio area off of the Grand Ballroom that overlooks the grounds leading to the Atlantic Ocean. It is contracted for outdoor weddings and events and previously needed to have a back-up tent rental in the case of inclement weather. This was always an extra cost and add-on; another thing for event planners to deal with, as well as very cumbersome. These beautiful retractable canopies were designed to replace the rental tents, so that at the touch of the remote, the space can now be transformed with overhead coverage for rain or heat. Drop down screens, also keep out blowing rain, cut down wind and keep out insects.
A custom combination of three B-Space Corradi units were constructed for a combined length of 114’-0” x 24’-9”. This is installed over the Grand Ballroom Patio area. It includes a rigid frame buildout from the building at the left side to meet the back of the Corradi unit, extending to the far outside of the patio. The project also includes 12 Titan Screen drop down screens around the perimeter of the front and sides.
This resort hotel is always very busy, so the project had to be installed within a 10 day window. This was done in phases and quickly installed around events. Now the ballroom patio area is functional with an additional large area that is good during sunshine, rain or beautiful moonlit nights. They now have total flexibility. There are no more problems with the storage of tents and the manpower needed to assemble and disassemble them. The ballroom retractable canopies for The Ritz Carlton are attractive and distinctive; allowing all sorts of décor for weddings and events throughout the year.
