The rooftop Gardens by the Mandalay was designed to be a serene outdoor retreat from the bustle of the commercial spaces that surround it. The outdoor sanctuary had become dated over the last few decades. It needed to be completely revamped in order to provide the experience desired, including gardens, landscaping, sitting areas, fountains, koi ponds, firepits, and extensive winding walkways to provide peaceful, beautiful access to wandering visitors.
The sky-high project required sustainable materials and high levels of environmental responsibility. In choosing a material for the long, winding walkway, durability was a significant concern, as the walkway was designed to be applied just four inches from the concrete surface.
The designer chose our Benchmark Ash decking for the 23,000+ feet of winding walkway because of its stunning beauty, high durability and our commitment to responsibility. Thermory products provided LEED points toward certification, through our reduced thermal conductivity rating and Class 1 Durability Rating. Our Benchmark Ash products come with a 25+ year rot-resistance rating. Thermory products are both low maintenance and beautiful, providing a naturally stunning aesthetic to complement the gorgeous surrounding features.
The Solar Reflectance Index rating and Class 1 Durability rating not only provided LEED points, but make this deck safe and comfortable even for bare feet!
The rooftop gardens showcase many wonderful elements and features. This walkway not only provides access to all of them, because of its beautiful design and material – it’s one of them in itself!
Our Benchmark Ash grooved decking provided solutions to the challenges of the project.
