Lancaster London Hotel

Energy Design Solutions have recently supplied a number of glazed-in louvre panels to the above site which is nearing completion.

Some of the F30Z-28-P1 louvre panels have been supplied in a textured bronze anodised finish, whilst others have been supplied powder coated to RAL9005 Matt.  The frames include a channel to provide a toggle slot to secure the installation.  The unique profile of the blade extrusion includes a punched insect mesh, so there was no need to include a separate mesh.  These louvres can be supplied with P1 (insect), P2 (bird) and NP (non-punched) options.

Brocklebank Retail Park

Energy Design Solutions have completed the supply and installation of bespoke architectural solar shading fins to the new retail park being developed near Greenwich.

The fins were supplied in various lengths and mounted between aluminium brackets before being lifted in to position between steel columns and fixed back to the structural steelwork.  The fins were mounted in varying angles, i.e. 90 degree, 60 degree and 30 degree, to give a “wave” effect as you look along the fins, giving a very striking appearance.

One set of fins were powder coated RAL7022 dark grey whilst the second set were finished natural anodised silver, both to compliment the contrasting curtain walling finish behind.  Individual lighting has been fitted (by others) to the anodised fins to light up these fins at night, to give an even more impressive appearance.

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club

Energy Design Solutions are proud to be involved on the new stadium complex for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, supplying bespoke glazed-in louvre panels with encapsulated insulated blanking panels to the rear.

The first phase, which is being supplied to site between July and September, equates to nearly 250 bespoke louvre panels, some as large as 3500mm wide x 1750mm high, all manufactured as one piece with no joints.  The louvre panels also include a special nylon block fitted in to the glazing channel with an 8mm toggle slot to allow the panels to be installed safely within the facade.  To ease installation the blades were supplied separately to the frames, allowing the panels to be lifted in to position safely without damaging any components.

EDS are proud to be involved on this contract and look forward to seeing the stadium completed in the future.

The Embankment, Greengate, Manchester

Energy Design Solutions have started working on site at the prestigious Greengate regeneration scheme in the heart of Manchester.  The scope of works includes a number of architectural louvre screens and doors, some with Kingspan Kooltherm insulation fitted to the rear, and some double bank active areas.  There are also a number of specialist glazed-in louvre panels, some with curved head.

The development will see two office blocks of 172,640 sq ft and 150,000 sq ft built, along with a 442-space car park, which will be run by Q-Park. The first block and the car park have been valued at £56m.

The Embankment development is part of the wider Greengate regeneration scheme, which is on the border of Manchester and Salford and hopes to bring in £400m of private investment and create 5,200 jobs.

Greengate takes its name from the main street than ran through the historic core of Salford to the River Irwell. In Medieval times, it acted as the main crossing point to central Manchester. The site is opposite Manchester Cathedral.

The project is being led by a joint-venture between Manchester-based Ask Developments and construction company Carillion.
