Specialty construction company adds millwork to first of several hotel projects
Online PR News – 14-August-2019 – KISSIMMEE, Fla. – The moment guests step into the lobby of the new Margaritaville Resort Orlando, the "it's 5 o'clock somewhere" mindset begins. With views of a large lagoon pool from floor-to-ceiling windows and a welcome cocktail waiting, guests are transported to a lush, tropical oasis.
JK2 Scenic, a local leader in the specialty construction industry, contributed to the project, which is one of Orlando's latest luxury resorts.
From colorful art to margarita glasses hanging from the ceiling, the resort embodies the fun, laid-back spirit of Margaritaville founder Jimmy Buffett. The island vibe is anchored by rich, wood elements like large planters and paneling, as well as soaring, beach-wood inspired beams on the ceiling. JK2 was charged with producing these unique millwork elements within the common areas of the hotel space, including the tongue and groove ceiling; faux beams; teak planters; white cabanas; check-in, concierge and bellhop desks and more.
"We always love working on projects that expand what Orlando is known for, creating new and exciting experiences for our millions of visitors each year," said Julie Holmes, president and principal of JK2 Scenic. "We were thrilled to be part of the team working on this resort, which is already becoming an integral part of the Kissimmee area."
Margaritaville is part of JK2's extensive experience working throughout Orlando's tourism district on creative projects focused on customer experiences and branding. It is also the first of four large resorts the company is working on in 2019.
The first phase of Margaritaville Orlando Resort opened in early 2019. Guests are able to choose between one of the 184 guestrooms in the Margaritaville Hotel or a stay in the Margaritaville Cottages. It is part of a multi-million-dollar complex featuring a hotel and water park complex near Walt Disney World.
