Senior provides the perfect match for Manchester’s new pitch-side hotel

  • 4 Apr 2018

The new Hilton Garden Inn Hotel, which overlooks Lancashire’s Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, features supreme quality aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling supplied by Senior Architectural Systems.

Senior advised on the most cost-effective solution to delivering a glazing package, which met with both the desired visual and performance requirements of architects ICA and the client.

Senior also made recommendations to help with the appointment of a specialist installer, with the contract awarded to T.A. Anders & Co Ltd, a company who worked with Senior to provide the glazing package for Fleetwood Town FC’s new training ground.

For the bright and inviting entrance to the new hotel, Senior’s slimline SF52 aluminium curtain walling, SPW600 aluminium casement windows and robust SPW501 aluminium commercial doors featured.

The rooms at the rear of the hotel, directly overlooking the cricket ground, feature Senior’s patented, thermally-enhanced PURe® SLIDE aluminium sliding doors; these open onto individual balconies and can be also be used as private corporate boxes if needed.

The acoustic performance was an important aspect of the glazing package, especially on the front elevation of the hotel, which is located near a main road.

To further enhance the comfort of the hotel’s guests, Senior’s innovative PURe® SLIDE doors offer incredible low U-values and enhanced thermal efficiency.

As Emirates Old Trafford remained operational to host sporting and entertainment events throughout the hotel’s construction, teamwork was vital for the project.

Simon Scholefield, Senior Architectural Systems’ architectural advisor for the North West region, commented: “We are really proud of this project, not only because of the use of our glazing systems but more so for the fact that it is a great example of what close and early engagement with product manufactures can really achieve.

“Supply chain collaboration also ensured that our products were installed by a specialist such as T A Anders & Co Ltd who has proven multi-sector expertise and particular skill in delivering complex glazing contracts for the leisure, commercial and stadia markets.”

David Leyland, Senior Bid Manager for the project at T.A. Anders & Co Ltd, added: “We are very proud of securing, installing and completing this project and in creating a glazing package that meets the design and performance criteria set out by the clients Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Lancashire County Cricket Club.”
