Lake Taupo Holiday Resort

Lake Taupo Holiday Resort built a thermally heated swimming pool complex with an octagonal shaped Café & Bar building in the centre. This is the only swimming pool complex of this type in New Zealand licenced to serve alcohol within the swimming pool area and directly into the swimming pool itself.

This building included a shop & commercial kitchen area for preparing & serving hot food such as; Pizza, Hot fries, takeaways & light meals along with Ice Creams, Milkshakes, Crisps, cold drinks and espresso coffees.

CDM Central was contracted to provide the following joinery fittings for this complex: Shop, Kitchen & Bar Cabinetry fitted into the octagonal Shop/Bar building. Due to the conditions associated with the heated pool waters all cabinetry was required to be manufactured using high pressure laminated marine bonded plywood to resist moisture degradation due to the exposure to humidity and the remote but possible risk of flooding if pool were to leak into the bar area.

  • Granite service counter tops with LED strip lighting mounted underneath.
  • Stainless Steel work benchtops in kitchen, bar & shop areas.
  • Motorised Roller Shutters with high pressure laminated marine bonded plywood bulkheads to house the roller shutters when open.
  • Replica Hardwood Treasure Chest fitted with polycarbonate viewing panel cut-out in lid and LED lighting to illuminate the imitation treasure ‘hidden within. This Treasure Chest is cemented into the bottom of the deepest section of the swimming pool.
  • Grotto ‘Hobbit’ style door fitted into the side of a Grotto type concrete mound/cavern which covers part of the deepest section of the main swimming pool.

Cubby holes for storage of swimming towels & other personally items. These cubby hole units were constructed using Marine Plywood with a clear two-pot shop sprayed finish.
