Managing Resort Infrastructure and Maintaining Sustainability
November 15, 2023
Managing resorts is a complex business. While many observers tend to focus on the ‘front of house’ activities that involve guest care, it is well understood that guests are just one facet of the resort managers responsibilities.
A continuous and clean water supply is crucial for all resorts. Without water, a resort cannot function, and without effective sewage treatment, a resort cannot meet environmental compliance, posing risks to the environment and the potential operation of the resort.
In previous articles, we have discussed the intricacies of wastewater projects for resorts and remote sites and provided guidance on selecting suitable technology for long-term investments, such as the Hydroflux RoadTrain® sewage treatment plant. In this discussion, we will highlight one of the most crucial aspects of such investments: the long-term management of the asset.
With over four decades of experience, Hydroflux understands the unique operational challenges of remote resorts. We acknowledge that it’s not just about the logistics of equipment provision but also about ensuring the long-term sustainability of treatment assets.
The Hydroflux perspective is a ‘whole of life’ perspective provided through our Sustainable Infrastructure Program. The Sustainable Infrastructure Program comprises three phases and can be implemented at any phase depending on the maturity of your site.
- The Support Phase
- Focuses around assisting the development of the site before construction, offering support such as environmental permits, waste management planning and early-stage design optioneering.
- The Delivery Phase
- The construction project phase where Hydroflux provides design & construct services capitalising on as much local content as possible.
- The Protection Phase
- Providing long term operation and maintenance support such as site condition assessments, O&M audits, and operator training. In addition, we offer the provision of operators where necessary and the supply of spare parts and chemicals for the life span of the asset.
It’s really about you choosing which level of engagement and support is appropriate for your situation.
Hydroflux understands the challenges of working with environmental departments, the stress associated with construction delays caused by contractors, and the financial impact of temporary resort closures due to water supply issues. We have a proven track record of offering simple and effective solutions when others couldn’t.
Engaging the Hydroflux Sustainable Infrastructure Program means you are supported, your treatment solution is designed and constructed professionally and your resort and the environment you reside in is protected for the life span of the treatment asset.
