MR Allen was asked to construct a 31 bed extension to Tune Hotel in Folgate Street, London. The extension was part 5 storey, part 3 storey and “wrapped” around one side and rear elevation of the existing hotel. But the new building needed to blend seamlessly with the old so a brick finish was required.
Insulation was already built into the structure of the extension, so only the thinnest cladding panel was required. We supplied around 570m² of our 17mm X-Clad system for the project, which was installed by one of our approved installers, ML Brickwork (Southern) Ltd. The rich red and dark multi brick slips were sourced separately and were chosen to match the existing hotel. The brick slips were fitted in a Flemish bond style and finished with our Europoint Light Sandstone mortar.
The completed extension created an attractive addition to the hotel which has a contiguous finish with the original building.
