Fabrique Specialist Glazing were a vital part of the supply chain in the development of the Holiday Inn Express in Grimsby Town Centre. The hotel development required a complete glazing solution and the contractors looked for a local fabricator who could install all the glazing requirements throughout the hotel.
Fabrique approached their aluminium supplier Kestrel Aluminium Systems to assist them with the project from the outset and the two companies worked in partnership for the entire project, from product specification to delivery.
Specifying the 75mm and 10mm Curtain Walling system created a smart and modern solution for glazing the wide openings on the ground floor. This popular and robust system provided a simple solution for Fabrique to install efficiently to make the building watertight. The system is also compatible with Kestrel commercial doors which have been fitted throughout the ground floor. Both automatic and manual doors have been installed utilising panic hardware and mag locks that offer security and comply with building regulations.
The project brief included the installation of 80 windows that needed to be thermally efficient and capable of accepting acoustic glazing. The 60mm Window System was the ideal choice offering low U-Values with Fabrique choosing to install 35 and 40 decibel acoustic glazing to ensure all guests of the hotel enjoy a quiet night’s sleep! Fabrique also offered bespoke solutions for the project, drawing on their experience in the fenestration industry adding details to the building that created a high end finish.
“On projects of this size working closely with our customers ensures a successful outcome for all parties. We pride ourselves on providing the support from start to finish and the Holiday Inn completed by Fabrique is a project we are proud to have been a part of” says Kestrel Sales Manager John Treagust.
