The Rockford Hotel, a 4-star Hotel in Adelaide, undertook extensive refurbishments to their rooftop pool and bar area last year, with the aim of making it THE place to see and be seen.  Ideally situated in the arts precinct of the bustling west end, the hotel is conveniently close to the Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide Oval, Galleries and museums and only minutes from the airport.

Great transformation with NewTechWood’s Terrace Decking, Shadowline Cladding and solid Fascia Boards

The entire top level of the hotel has been transformed, and we are proud that NewTechWood’s Terrace Decking, Shadowline Cladding, and solid Fascia Boards in colour Teak are utilized on a large scale. Completed in July 2021 by Maxwell Project Services, this renovation project features two decking areas: 2 x 16m2 cantilever platforms, approx. 50 m2 of wall cladding and another 5 m2 in the lounge/seating area.  All NewTechWood material was supplied by NewTechWood resellers, Ridgewood Timber in Adelaide. Tiling was also replaced around the pool and planter boxes.

This is what the rooftop pool area used to look like:


In addition to the regular hotel offerings, The Rockford offers free Wi-Fi, family rooms, a pool, concierge service, satellite TV stations, and guest rooms that are well-equipped with all the expected features.

Some rooms, such as their Deluxe Suites, also include a kitchenette area with a dishwasher, stove and microwave.  In addition, the hotel offers a special in-house snack bar and a separate business area for business guests. Talk about spoiled for choice.

A new space where guests can truly get away

And now they also offer a beautifully refurbished rooftop pool area and outdoor space where guests can truly get away from it all.

NewTechWood Shadowline Cladding meets guests as they mount the stairs to the rooftop recreational area.

Here, guests can relax in the pool, or do laps if they want to exercise.

Luckily, NewTechWood’s patented Ultrashield technology which protects each board on all four sides makes it perfect for poolside placement.

If swimming is not their thing, Rockford’s guests can enjoy refreshments in the open air or just unwind in the seated lounge area, and leave the world behind.

Part of the appeal of NewTechwood composite decking and cladding is its low to no maintenance.  Once installed, it never needs re-sanding, painting, oiling or varnishing – ever.  It is fade and UV resistant, and termites simply don’t like it.

Being on a rooftop, exposed to the elements, they needed something durable and long-lasting… and they found it in NewTechWood.  All the materials chosen for this refurbishment were chosen for their high quality, enduring nature.  The fact that they all look classy is just a bonus.

Offering incredible views, the Rockford’s refurbished rooftop is popular with guests and locals alike.


Of course, you don’t have to live in a Hotel to enjoy luxury living.  You can spoil yourself with your own NewTechWood haven, and if you would like information on our decking and cladding profiles, feel free to contact our friendly team.
