The development utilised System 17 curtain walling in both standard capped and silicone pointed formats, complemented with system 5-35Hi+ windows from Metal technology’s THERM.AL™ range and System 23 Louvres.

Design and Build contractor McAleer & Rushe and architect White Ink specified a comprehensive suite of Metal Technology architectural aluminium products at the new, 124-bedroom Premier Inn and adjacent Pearce Building Class A commercial office space in Maidenhead.

The development, on a brownfield site, utilised System 17 curtain walling in both standard capped and silicone pointed formats, complemented with system 5-35Hi+ windows from Metal technology’s THERM.AL range and System 23 Louvres. The building also featured System 10 and System 5-20DHi+ doors.

System 17 SP (silicone pointed) was used to create a large feature glazed facade delivering an impressive visual impact. The combination of Metal Technology’s high-performance curtain walling, windows and doors offered not only a pleasing aesthetic but also structural integrity, weather performance and thermal enhancement.

Metal Technology's System 23 Louvre system complemented the overall appearance while also providing natural ventilation and preventing water ingress.

The discovery of 50 ancient graves was an unexpected feature of the project, with the delicate process of removing the remains entrusted to the Museum of London.
