INCA Case Study: Clayton Hotel, Bristol


Clayton Hotel, Bristol

Project Type: Refurbishment

Building Type: Hotel

Architect: Allan Murray Architects Ltd

System Designer: Alsecco

Installer: Woodman Brothers ltd

System & Finish: Ecomin 400, Ceramic Slip finish

U-value Achieved: N/A

Situated in the hear of Bristol’s old town conservation area, the existing building consisted of 8 interconnected 1970s office blocks and 3 listed buildings / facades, including the historically significant Art Nouveau facade to the former Everards Print Works.

Retention of existing concrete frame and facades has allowed for relatively low embodied carbon for a project of this size.

Most of the buildings were converted to create the 4 star 255 bed Clayton Hotel. Other buildings were used to create engaging public spaces, 5 lettable public commercial units and two blocks of 24 private apartments.

Due to the curve of the existing archways a quality visual install was required. Alsecco specified their Ecomin 400 EWI system featuring 40mm of HD mineral fibre insulation with a black ceramic slip tiled façade used to the archways on the St Johns entrance which was expertly installed by local EWI installer Woodman Brothers Ltd.

The decision to refurbish the existing building, rather than demolish and build anew is estimated to have saved 2,084 tonnes of CO2 emissions. These carbon savings are equivalent to the CO2 emitted in powering 264 homes in one year.
