Hotel Park Inn
Manchester’s prestigious Park Inn Hotel Development
Waterloo air terminal devices are being used throughout one of Manchester’s latest building projects, the Park Inn Hotel.
The nine-storey Park Inn Hotel has two floors below ground and six above which features 252 guest rooms, conference and meeting facilities, gym, restaurants and bar. It is fully air conditioned throughout using a fan coil based system. Waterloo’s diffusers and grilles are used extensively in the reception area, back of house offices and the bedrooms.
A total of 293 grilles were installed in the hotel, which includes square louvre faced diffusers, fixed blade grilles, airline linear grilles and continuous barrel slot diffusers.
A major benefit of Waterloo’s barrel slot diffuser is the ability to provide adjustable air distribution over much shorter runs than previously achievable. Constructed from lightweight extruded aluminium body and trims, the CSB integrates seamlessly into any installation and is proving to be very popular since its launch in 2008.
Environmental awareness was a major consideration. Derry Building Services ensured that energy reduction and carbon emissions were a important factor in the installation, commissioning and maintenance of the air terminal devices. This was to achieve efficient air conditioning and avoid energy waste.
The Park Inn Hotel forms part of the Green Quarter, an eight acre mixed-use residential and commercial scheme that includes the new Grade A City Park offices. These were developed simultaneously to the south of the Park Inn Hotel and winter garden managed by The Rezidor Hotel Group.
The Park Inn hotel is set to become a major landmark for Manchester. It is placed at the heart of the city, being situated opposite the MEN Arena, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges with transport interchanges nearby.
