Newcastle’s multi-million pound Crowne Plaza Hotel, designed by Space Architects achieves its twenty-first century look with due respect to its historic Tyneside site using architectural aluminium glazing systems from Metal Technology.
The glazed façade and striking, seven-storey atrium were constructed using Metal Technology’s System 17 capped high rise curtain walling, bringing lead architect Andy Roberts’ vision to life in terms of both aesthetic and performance. Complying with the latest British Standards, System 17 provides structural integrity, weather performance, thermal enhancement and complete design versatility.
Fitting seamlessly into the overall scheme the aesthetic and performance requirements were further complemented by use of two products from the Metal Technology range: System 4-35hi+ casement windows and System 5-20D hi+ thermally enhanced doors. Metal technology’s 4-35Hi+ casement window offers impressive acoustic performance achieving a 47db reduction with double glazed glass units.
The hotel forms the anchor of Newcastle’s £200m Stephenson Quarter scheme, the largest regeneration project in Newcastle in over a decade and offers 251 bedrooms and suites with nine state-of-the-art, flexible conference and banqueting rooms.
