Enjoying a prime location overlooking the Lancashire Cricket pitch at Emirates Old Trafford, the stunning views enjoyed by the residents of the new Hilton Garden Inn hotel have been framed by high-quality aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling supplied by Senior Architectural Systems and fabricated and installed by specialist T A Anders & Co Ltd.
Through early engagement and collaboration with main contractor Galliford Try, Senior’s specification team were able to advise on the most cost-effective solution to delivering a glazing package that met with both the desired aesthetic and performance requirements of architects ICA and the client. Senior was also able to make recommendations to assist with the appointment of a specialist installer, with the contract going on to be awarded to T.A. Anders & Co Ltd. The company, which has extensive experience of working in this sector, also worked with Senior to deliver the glazing package for Fleetwood Town FC’s new training ground.
To create the bright and welcoming entrance to the new hotel, Senior’s slimline SF52 aluminium curtain walling was used alongside the manufacturer’s SPW600 aluminium casement windows and robust SPW501 aluminium commercial doors. The rooms at the rear of the hotel, which directly overlook the cricket ground, feature Senior’s patented, thermally-enhanced PURe® SLIDE aluminium sliding doors which open onto individual balconies that can be also be used as private corporate boxes during events at the cricket ground.
Careful consideration was given to the acoustic performance of the glazing package, particularly on the front elevation of the hotel which is located close to a main road. To further enhance the comfort of the hotel’s guests, Senior’s innovative PURe® SLIDE doors offer exceptional low U-values and improved thermal efficiency.
