Heritage hotel is worthy winner

The largest hospitality project ever undertaken in Ireland has scooped a prestigious ‘Winner of Winners’ award sponsored by GEZE UK. Adare Manor, a neo Gothic ‘architectural masterpiece’, in County Limerick, took the top category at the AI Specification Awards 2019 for ReardonSmith Architects, Carrson International and Mooney Architectural. Local architect, Michael Healy, also worked on the project. The five-star resort which sits within an 840-acre estate incorporates a new five-storey wing which sits alongside the original 19th


manor. Its architectural ironmongery was more than just a finishing touch, Sun Valley Bronze hardware was specified by Carrson to mirror the “passion for quality craftsmanship” which was integral to the design standard. GEZE UK also provided more than 200 closers for the project – including the TS 2000 NV and TS 4000 E overhead closers and the Boxer integrated closer – all completed in a bronze finish to compliment the other ironmongery fittings that were used.

Kingspan TEK Cladding Panels have provided an offsite wall solution for a school and leisure campus in Littleport. Kingspan TEK Structural Insulated Panels were designed and factory cut to

the project’s unique specifications by Kingspan Timber Solutions. This offsite production process minimised site waste and enabled the panels to be quickly installed onto the steel frame, ready for main contractors, Morgan Sindall Construction, to apply the final external finishes. The highly-insulated core of the Kingspan TEK Cladding Panels allowed the project to meet its thermal performance targets.
