Context

Dakota Hotels were conceived and developed with design as a founding element of the brand. Dakota Glasgow is a remarkable conversion of a redundant office block.

The hotel is situated within the old financial and commercial centre of the city, and is surrounded by many listed Georgian buildings. Planning conditions therefore stipulated that all roof-top service plant should be visually screened.

Product supplied

A 2m-high roof-screen of Italia-80i panels was fitted retrospectively. During the design process important consideration was given to the support system, with the capabity of withstanding a significant wind loading but which would not impair the integrity of the existing waterproof membrane.

22m of panels were installed along 3 sides of the roof. The louvres were inverted to provide effective visual screening from street level. The support framework was ballasted along the entire length.

The panels were hot-dip galvanised and polyester powder-coated RAL 9005 Black.
