SHERATON MIRAGE, GOLD COAST
The Sheraton Mirage Resort and Spa is an icon of Queensland’s Gold Coast, built during the region’s 1980s development boom. A recent multi-million-dollar refurbishment has not only returned the resort to its former glory but has drastically improved energy efficiency too.
Built over 30 years ago, the Sheraton Mirage Resort had lost its five-star edge and become an expensive and inefficient hotel to operate by 2011.
To ensure the resort meets sustainability targets, a range of works were conducted that not only improved the resort’s aesthetics and guest amenity, but also addressed energy efficiency. These included the installation of new LED lighting, sensors and controls; the replacement of guest room air conditioning controls and installation of movement sensors and window switches.
