Radisson SAS Hotel, Liverpool

Architect: Aedas Architects
Fabricator: Airedale Architectural
Products: FXi46 fixed light windows

The Radisson SAS Hotel is a new design-led, flagship 10-storey hotel on Liverpool’s famous waterfront, which incorporates more than 200 aluminium casement windows from Technal.

The FXi46 fixed light windows were pre-installed into concrete panels off-site in a factory in Cambridgeshire. This innovative method of construction improved accuracy, quality and significantly reduced the build time. The 8m long pre-finished white acid-etched panels were then craned into position on site in Liverpool.

The technique reduced the time required to build a weathertight structure and removed the requirement for external scaffolding, brick cladding and blockwork trades. The panels were also designed to remove visible joints in the hotel bedrooms.

The FXi46 window provided a low maintenance, contemporary glazing solution for the scheme. Slim sight lines create a modern and stylish finish, and intelligent design principles and advanced production techniques ensure long-term durability.
