This former outdated office block has received extensive refurbishment including a large extension to the rear. Which has converted this to a spectacular, modern 244-bedroom hotel, that will certainly stand out within the surrounding area. The huge transformation from a 3-storey extension to the existing building to the construction of a new 7-storey building to rear with both interconnected.
The building was stripped back to its basic structure with Build-Therm Services installing new light-weight SFS to accommodate for the new openings and façade. The building envelope received new aluminium cladding formed into cassette and powder coated to a bronze metallic finish. This enabled the main areas to receive an Anthracite Grey finish to the upper levels and an insulated render finish to the internal courtyard elevations.
An additional challenge we faced was the project was undertaken throughout lockdown. Although it was a tough time it didn’t affect the progress of the project.
