The 16 storey, £50 million hotel offers 254 rooms, a gym, numerous bars, business and conference centres and a 2 storey glazed terrace sky bar.
Comar was selected to provide the facade with curtain walling, windows and entrances. A double height Comar 6EFT Curtain wall was selected as it offers strength with a sleek 50mm sightline, allowing diners to enjoy clear uninterrupted views across the city.
The system offers a 50mm stick system with the capability to span further as the mullions and transoms have the highest Ix and Iy values on the market today.
The profiles were finished in RAL 7016 Matt Grey, blending seamlessly into the mahogany, cream and gold interior. All structural calculations were carried out by Comar’s Special Projects Team who ensured all Comar bracketry and fixings will withstand any sway, dead or live loads.
Comar’s interface range of adaptors allowed the Comar 5Pi Advanced Windows to integrate with the differing cladding elements.
Comar 6EFT capped curtain walling was used at the base of the building, interfacing with the dramatic angled cantilevered entrances. For this element of the face design the detailing and installation had to be precise to ensure that drainage and seals create a future-proof water tight solution.
In addition, the Comar 7P.i Commercial Door system welcomes visitors and provides uninterrupted access. Sections are robust and offer an ideal solution for high traffic entrances. The doors selected were auto sliding which allow uninterrupted passage into the double storey entrance lobby.
