The Rydges Hotel Wellington is in a prime location right above the international terminal at the Wellington airport. A perfect spot for travellers seeking a convenient location to experience New Zealand’s cosy capital city. With a strong focus on great design this 4-star hotel complex offers 134 stylish and comfortable rooms ideal for either business or leisure purposes.

Because the architects valued quality and durability, they specified ARDEX tiling and waterproofing products to be a part of this $36 million-dollar project. The size of this build was significant, with a combined total area of over 2100m­2 of installed ARDEX X 52 tile adhesive, ARDEX Quickbond adhesive and undertile WeldTec membrane ARDEX WPM 750 .

ARDEX WPM 750 was specified in 130 bathrooms and showers as well as all corridors including the main lobby. ARDEX WPM 750 was the selected membrane of choice for its ability to be heat-welded which adds security and its fleece-lined formulation which allows for the direct adhesion of tiled surfaces. ARDEX WPM 750 has excellent flexibility, durability, and superior resistance to tearing, cracking, bubbling and absorption – perfect for a hotel situation. To ensure full quality of the tiling systems, ARDEX representatives worked very closely with the waterproofing installers Warmup and the tiling installers Pololitos with frequent site visits and regular communication to guarantee the workmanship matched the project requirements.

Now that this fantastic hotel complex is finished and open to the public. Make sure you book yourself a night’s stay and see for yourself that the luxury and premium quality you feel begins at the roots of the hotel’s structure – ARDEX; the quality leader for an entire industry.
