Waterfront Integrated Resort Project


Surespan have recently completed the design and manufacturing of a large stainless steel hydraulic opening recessed floor door for a project in Sri-Lanka.

The project

The $850 million Waterfront integrated Resort (Cinnamon Life) is Sri Lanka’s largest and most iconic mixed development, located in the capital city of Colombo. Balmond Studio have designed and constructed the resort as a ‘city within a city’ offering two 5-star luxury hotel, offices, residence and premium retail and entertainment. They hope the resort will become one of the iconic and identifiable landmarks in Asia. The no limits project is symbolic of Sri Lanka’s ambition, drive, and growth.

Surespan were approached to manufacture the hatch to suit an opening of 6.5m by 4.1m and capable of withstanding a slow-moving wheel load of 10kN/m2. The pan type door will be re-cessed for receiving 30mm of Natural Stone Slab infill with an approximate infill weight of 2 tonnes.


The largest recessed floor hatch has been manufactured to provide a theoretical sound reduction of 45dB. To assist with installation, lifting points were designed to the frame exterior.
