Premier Inn Southampton West Quay Hotel

Project Details:



Fixing Type:

Cassette Fix







Concrete Grey and Grey Aluminium





The Premier Inn Southampton West Quay is a popular choice for travellers due to its convenient location in the centre of Southampton, making it easy to explore the city's attractions and landmarks. The hotel is just a short walk away from the Titanic Engineer Officers Memorial, adding a historical touch to its surroundings.

Valcan supplied 1700m2 of VitraDual A1 aluminium cladding to distributor Vivalda for the recladding of the Southampton West Quay Premier Inn. The installation was expertly carried out by Clarkes Facades, who removed the existing ACM panels and replaced them with the durable marine-grade VitraDual panels, due to the location of the hotel, close to the seafront.

Whitbread, a leading hospitality company, appointed Axiom as the architect for the project. Axiom specified VitraDual in RAL 7023 Concrete grey and RAL 9007 grey aluminium for the new façade. This choice not only gave the building a modern and updated look but also improved its safety and compliance standards. Whitbread is known for its commitment to quality and safety, so the decision to upgrade the façade was in line with their values. The new façade not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the building but also provides peace of mind to guests, knowing that they are staying in a secure and well-maintained establishment


VitraDual is a prefinished rainscreen panel designed to provide a non-combustible aluminium panel solution that can be fitted as both cassette panels and flat sheets with no oil-canning appearance offering a cost effective and aesthetically pleasing façade solution.

VitraDual (3mm) comes with BBA accreditation, CWCT testing to wind loads of 3600pa and an A1* fire rating in addition to a limitless colour range, check out the standard colours here on the colour chart and for more product information, visit the VitraDual page here.
