the Comet’s multi million pound make-over which began in 2017 is now complete. Stride Treglown worked up the designs for the new extension and refurbishment of existing areas, with works entrusted to main contractor ISG Bristol. The building’s original crittall sash windows were retained but this did not provide the required level of noise insulation to a number of the guestrooms, restaurant and function spaces for meetings and networking events. Selectaglaze installed 104 secondary glazed


units, with a cavity between the existing crittall windows and the secondary units to heighten the level of noise insulation.


he distinctive Art Deco Grade II Listed Comet Hotel is located in Hertfordshire at the junction of the


access to the outer window. This slimline unit has not only produced exceptionally quiet rooms thanks to noise insulation in excess of 45dB but will reduce heating costs, thus improving sustainability. The new secondary glazing to this Hatfield landmark will now help lower energy bills and afford the guests a good night sleep, along with those visiting the hotel guaranteed a pleasant experience.

The openings in the hotel guestrooms were


treated with Series 10 horizontal sliding units, which is a versatile system providing easy


Growing interest in digital wooden buildings


Wooden buildings are on the rise. Investors are seeking more sustainable building alternatives and digital technologies are making wooden buildings cost-competitive compared with traditional alternatives. Last summer, Stora Enso reached the milestone


of having manufactured more than one million cubic metres of cross- laminated timber for the first time since their mills began production in 2008. Alongside this growing interest, Stora Enso is piloting radio- frequency identification sensors that can provide basic information on the temperature and moisture content of a wooden panel.

A range of Dowsil sealants have been specified for use on the atrium elevations and glazed partitioning within The Sorting Office, a new commercial property in Dublin’s Cardiff Lane. Crucial to the project was the use of Dowsil’s Firestop 700, which was able to meet both the performance and fire rating required. All the sealant products were specified and distributed by the Sherwin Williams Company. The Dowsil


Firestop 700 was selected due to its ability to meet the required specifications and performance under testing.

When excellence is the target, it makes sense to turn to a proven supply chain that has the capacity to adapt to specific demands. As a result, 2 New Bailey, in the heart of Manchester’s regenerating commercial centre, achieves a BREEAM excellent rating. It has been gained by using the “Rolls Royce” of ventilation – a VRF heating & cooling system, with airflow delivered into the occupied spaces via , 11-
