Suffolk & Norfolk Cladding's Salthouse Harbour Hotel project at Ipswich Marina wins RICS "Project of the Year".
The completion of the multi-million pound development project to extend Ipswich's premier 4 star luxury waterfront hotel, the Salthouse Harbour Hotel, was recently announced as "Project of the Year" at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (2010) East of England Awards .
The major development was spearheaded by renowned main contractor ISG Jackson and designed by Ipswich based Architect Barefoot and Gilles.  The six storey concrete frame extension provides a new reception area, new dining facilities and an additional 27 luxury bedrooms to the hotel.  The extension boasts outstanding views across the Marina and has a stunning modern facade installed by Suffolk & Norfolk Cladding.  It is rare to see such balance created between established architectural structures, such as the original redbrick dockside warehouse, and sizeable modern extensions; however, with this project the Architects’ ideas were brought perfectly to fruition.  The facade was constructed of high grade ‘Kingspan FL’ panelling and the specially fabricated “cranked” panels were installed on a galvanized support system designed by S & N Cladding.

From the outset it was clear to see this was no ordinary project!   High quality Vitrabond curtain walling was installed across the balcony patio door elevations to create a clean modern appeal, which combined with the glazed balcony panelling suggests a somewhat nautical conceptualization.  This uncluttered, fine line contemporary chic, combined with the traditional and original Victorian period building creates a truly exceptional finish.  Fully aware of the benefits of green roofing to both the environment and the overall finish of such a landmark project, S & N Cladding installed an Alwitra single ply roof to a tapered Kingspan insulation board system and then added a low maintenance Green Sedum roof using locally sourced indigenous grass and plant species.  The overall project is a great example of the continuing quality of the development of the Ipswich Marina and a prime example of Suffolk & Norfolk Cladding’s talent and versatility.
