Project Completed: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Dublin

Completely refurbished in April 2014, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dublin – Burlington Road is located minutes from Dublin’s city centre and St Stephens Green area. Stay at this landmark hotel, which was built in 1972, to learn first-hand why it has such an outstanding reputation. With 502 guest rooms, this is one of the larger hotels situated in Dublin’s ‘embassy belt’.

Guests enjoy a great selection of modern rooms sized for comfort, preferential rates for on-site parking and complimentary WiFi. Executive rooms and suites feature complimentary breakfast and other refreshments in the Executive Lounge.

The first impression of a building like this hotel is so important as it reflects the quality and service the company offers before stepping inside the door. In this case the impression gives a clean and prestige feel from just arriving at the door or seeing from a distance which is paramount to customer experience.

Valcan Ltd are pleased to have been selected to supply premium Vitrabond to this refurbishment project. The colour of choice was VB9701 Silver Ice Metallic which gives an awesome sparkle effect to the building and compliments the rich bronze colour used around the entrance and to eccentrate the lower window areas. The flat sheet material was supplied to fabricators CGL facades and then finished panels were shipped to Clarke Facades to install them on the building using a CGL Tray Panel System method to ensure a sleek finish. A great team is always the key to any success and here it was proved once again.

Mark Wiggins, Business Development and Marketing Manager at Clarke Facades commented:  “This was a great project to be involved in.  Working closely with the council, Hilton Hotel and GLEEDS allowed us to overcome the many challenges faced when project managing a live, fully operational hotel.  When we started on site, the hotel had previously invested heavily through internal fit-out refurbishments, therefore it was paramount that the façade was on par with the impressive internal look .  This was a responsibility that we were happy to take on.  Our design team worked with all parties involved in helping to develop a system and colour scheme that has gave the building an impressive new, awe-inspiring façade”.

Vitrabond comes in unlimited colour ranges, is easy to fabricate and install and saves you money on your budget, making it the first choice for any project. Contact us today for your information and samples. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
