Guttercrest Limited designed a feature gutter system for the new 350 bedroom Hilton brand hotel at Heathrow Airport Terminal 5. Working closely with the architect, Guttercrest designed an elegant aluminium box gutter system, complemented by traditional round cast aluminium downpipes, which was incorporated into the stonework aspect of the building.
To further enhance the building’s appearance, Guttercrest then sourced a specially manufactured polyester powder coating shade, giving an exact match to the building’s stonework.
In addition, Guttercrest supplied the fascias, soffits, the verge/barge cladding to the gable ends and the column and beam casings for the project; all of which were manufactured in-house and delivered to site on time.
The hotel building, set in landscaped grounds is clad primarily with facing brickwork incorporating contrasting brick coursing and reconstructed stone trims to window and feature areas. At ground level the main public spaces are faced with double glazed aluminium curtain walling to maximise natural light.
