Disney's Riviera Resort

Conveniently connected to Epcot and Hollywood Studios by the Skyliner gondola system, Disney’s Riviera Resort studios is designed in the image of French and Italian Riviera architecture as homage to Walk Disney’s love of international travel. The 300-room family-friendly resort features two pools, splash area, multiple restaurants and other interactive activities for children and adults. J.C. Gibson Plastering Co., Inc. spray-applied 420,000 square feet of QUIKRETE® Base Coat Stucco – Pump Grade and hand-applied 46,000 square feet of QUIKRETE® Scratch and Brown Fiber Reinforced Stucco to bring the themed resort to life. The stucco was part of several wall systems including Grade D paper and 3.4 self-furring metal lath, and metal framing and Dens Glass with waterproofing paper. In addition, stucco was used in combination with 15,000 feet of aluminum reveals, 10,000 feet of cornice and foam shapes, and 100,000 feet of corner bead, casing beads and other trim elements to create the unique custom decorative accents.

J.C. Gibson Plastering Co. used the pre-blended stucco with silo systems on the Disney's Riviera Resort because of the inherent value over field mixing, “The silo is the future and without a doubt, it’s here to stay,” owner John Gibson said. “We’re definitely sold on it. It’s also cleaner and safer.”

QUIKRETE® Base Coat Stucco – Pump Grade is a flowable, high workability plaster particularly designed for spray applications. It is a fiber reinforced Portland cement based stucco, designed to be used as the scratch and/or brown coat in a 3-coat stucco application, or the first coat in a 2-coat application.

QUIKRETE® Scratch and Brown Fiber Reinforced Stucco is a Portland cement-based stucco designed to be used as the scratch and brown coat in a 3-coat stucco application, or as the brown coat in a 2-coat application.
