Case Study: Senior Proves a Safe Bet at Doncaster Racecourse Hotel
With a successful track record of working in the hotel and leisure sector, Senior Architectural Systems has supplied the full aluminium fenestration package for the new Hilton Garden Inn hotel located at Doncaster’s famous racecourse.
Designed by KKA Architecture, the new hotel features Senior’s Slimline Aluminium Curtain Walling, thermally-efficient windows and robust commercial doors which have been installed by supply chain partner Danum Windows Ltd for main contractor Galliford Try.
With both Senior and Danum Windows being based in South Yorkshire, the use of a local supply chain has helped reduce the financial and environmental cost of the build and contribute to a timely delivery. The new hotel is also the latest contract that Senior has undertaken for global hotelier Hilton and follows the successful completion of similar high-profile schemes such as the Hilton Garden Inn at Manchester’s Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground.
Located overlooking Doncaster’s iconic racecourse, home of the St Leger Stakes which is the UK’s oldest horse race dating back to 1776, the new Hilton Garden Inn hotel has been designed to offer luxury accommodation and exceptional views of the surrounding scenery. The extensive use of Senior’s Slim Profile SF52 Aluminium Curtain Wall System alongside the use of its SPW600 Aluminium Window inserts, helps to create a bright and welcoming interior and provides various vantage points from which to watch the sporting action. Senior’s High Performance SPW501 Aluminium Doors have been installed to provide access to private balconies which overlook the racecourse, with the manufacturer’s Automatic SD Aluminium Commercial Doors providing safe and secure access to the main entrance and reception areas.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, Senior’s extensive range of Aluminium Fenestration Systems offers exceptional durability, minimum maintenance and cradle-to-cradle recyclability.
