Introduction

Working as a subcontractor to the principal contractor, we were contracted to complete the rainscreen fa├žade at The Holiday Inn Hotel on Talbot Road, a testament to both tradition and modernity. This case study delves into the slick cladding project, emphasising the intricacies involved in safeguarding its structural integrity and aesthetic allure.

Scope of works:

  • Cosentino Dekton engineered stone, installed on rails with secret fix system including rockwool insulation and Siderise fire barriers.
  • Jura natural limestone installed on rails with secret fix system including rockwool insulation and Siderise fire barriers.
  • Architectural aluminium to canopy, soffits and fascias.

Challenges:

The unique location of the Holiday Inn Hotel posed a series of challenges that demanded innovative engineering and planning. The corrosive effects of sea spray, coupled with high winds and salt-laden air, presented a formidable adversary to conventional building materials. Additionally, the requirement to seamlessly integrate the new cladding with existing structures mandated precision and attention to detail.

Conclusion:

The cladding project at Talbot Road Hotel stands as a testament to the symbiotic relationship between architectural vision and engineering ingenuity. Through planning, innovative solutions, and unwavering dedication, we feel we succeeded in elevating the aesthetic appeal and structural resilience of this iconic Blackpool landmark. As coastal communities contend with the challenges of climate change, the lessons gleaned from this case study serve as a beacon of inspiration for future endeavours in coastal development and preservation.
