LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT ONE OF OUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS – FREGATE ISLAND
Fregate Island is a beautiful private resort in the Seychelles, owned by Dr Happel (currently #519 on the Forbes World’s Billionaires list). The island is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful islands in the Indian Ocean and is home to an abundance of birdlife. The island is the sanctuary that helped save the ‘Magpie Robin” from extinction. The island features some of the world’s most amazing beaches with white sand, crystal-clear waters and has a very unique ambiance that focuses on exclusivity and that sought after absolute relaxation and recharging of its rich and famous guests. In fact, the resort “Fregate Island Private” is one of the most exclusive resorts in the world and accommodation rates can run several thousand dollars per night!
In early 2006 we were contacted by Mr Portier on behalf of Dr Happel. They had a massive problem:
To add to the resort’s misery, the roofs had become infested by giant millipedes and other insects that continued to flourish in the insect paradise that was being used as roofing. We were told that millipedes were falling from the roofs landing in the beds with the guest causing pandemonium!
A total nightmare for one of the world’s most exclusive resorts for the rich and famous!
Dr Happel’s own private Chalet complex was in an even worse condition! These chalets are perched on a cliff top, facing the brunt and onslaught of the ocean and its cyclones. This regular onslaught caused the inferior roofing to be torn apart by the hurricane winds. This was a major challenge that forced island management to cover the chalets roofs with cargo netting in an attempt to limit the damage and keep the roof from flying right off!
ENTER FIBER ROOFING…
FIBER ROOFING OVERCAME ALL ADVERSITIES!
We are proud to say that Fiber Roofing had stellar success. Not only did we replace 10.000 square meters of roofing in just 4 months, but we gave the island a truly exotic feel with specially-designed roofing panels and installation techniques. We were able to guarantee that no storm nets would ever again be needed to keep the thatch from disintegrating.
Now, almost 12 years later, “Fregate Island Private” still has those same roofs we installed in 2006. Not a dollar was again spent on roofing maintenance. The roofs look as if they were thatched yesterday! If actions speak louder than words, then our track record is shouting at the highest pitch possible: “Fiber Roofing has a unique insight and understanding of the needs and challenges faced by resort projects through years of first hand practical experience gained through numerous successful turnkey projects that have been completed.”
