Summer may well be over, but we’re staying in the spirit with this lovely leisure sector project. Blue skies serve as the perfect backdrop to this contemporary new Holiday Inn Express@Salford. Showcasing a contemporary palette of ‘Starlight’ and ‘Cool Medium Grey’ Max Exterior rainscreen cladding panels, complemented by distinctive modernist tinted glazing, this vibrant hotel projects exactly the right image.
Working alongside key client: The Peel Group; KKA Architects; Partner - Omnis Exterior Facades St. Helens; Contractor - Bowmer & Kirkland, and Sub-Contractor - Churchmore, this striking hotel is yet another example of just how smoothly and quickly a project can progress when everyone is focused on delivery. It also serves to highlight the advantages of modular construction. ‘The HolidayInn Express was a real coup for FunderMax as it was coveted by almost every other rainscreen cladding manufacturer.
With a pallet of 115 décors we were pleased when the client and main contractor picked two of our freshest and modern choices - Starlight White and Cool Medium Grey. But it wasn’t only the décors which enabled us to secure this prestigious project, it was also the sheet sizes, which helped to significantly reduce waste and therefore ultimately reduce the cost of the overall envelope package.’ Peter Watson, Area Sales Manager FunderMax UK.
