The client brief consisted of an entire facial uplift to the main entrance & external facade of the hotel, to be completed alongside the internal refurbishment of this wing of the building.

An important part of this scheme was being involved with the clients design team from the start, this enabled us to work with the architects to ensure we achieved the clients vision, whilst offering superior, compliant products, above and beyond the requirements of the new regulations from Approved Document B.

The cladding panels were changed from anA2 panel to an A1 rated cladding panel, the new fire break scheme was installed to beat the required minimum standards.
Because of the close proximity to the airport,it was important to ensure that the acoustic performance of the proposal was sufficient enough to block out as much sound as possible whilst still being affordable. This was achieved through a combination of product choice with frames, glass and panels.

This was a humbling project to be a part of and a testament to the collaboration from all involved. The project was also featured in the ‘Premier Hospitality’ publication due to the high standard aesthetics it achieved.
