Testimonials

Merivale’s award winning venue, The Ivy

To me the Ivy was never about opening one incredibly large venue but about opening 30 or 40 different venues over the course of a year. Every venue is treated as its own business. So it is really like having multiple smaller venues in this vicinity. In terms of the overall impact we are always trying to improve so it’s often difficult to see the forest for the trees.

I think a common factor between all our venues is the importance of providing lots of different choices and ensuring each of our venues maximises its revenue potential without compromising our guest comfort & enjoyment along the way.

We have worked successfully with Darren Crabb & his team on the Ivy and also many of our other venues, they have assisted us in creating innovative and functional weatherproof outdoor areas.

The guys assisted us in transforming the Ivy poolside cabanas into comfortable all-weather outdoor areas. Skymax Aerotech Opening Louvred Roofs offer guests control over each their cabana roofs so if and when the weather conditions take a change for the worst they only need to flick a button to stay comfy & dry.

The overall look and feel of the area was maintained while we added some great flexibility and functionality to this space.

I would recommend the Darren & the Skymax team as they have been providing many our venues with creative outdoor solutions & good service for many years.

Cheers
