Plastmo fabricator, Carlisle Window Systems has just completed a spectacular conservatory which is to be used as a restaurant at Armathwaite Hall Hotel, a luxury four star Lake District hotel.
The Armathwaite Hall Hotel which is set in 400 acres of deer park and woodland, bordered by the beauty of Bassenthwaite Lake and framed by the dramatic Skiddaw Mountain and Lake District fells, is as romantic as the surrounding country side. With this in mind, the builder, Lattimer construction, had to ensure the construction work was to match the splendour and beauty of the existing hotel and its surroundings.
Carlisle Windows was subcontracted to manufacture and install the conservatory which was fabricated out of the SAS aluminium system, and roof from the K2 roofing system, and fitted within four days. Stuart Thompson comments: “This was a very prestigious project to be working on; not only because of the actual hotel itself, but also because the builder has also won the local heat of the NHBC awards, owing to this project.
The conservatory was built on one part of the existing fabric of the building, with the second part within the extended part, designed so that it was not obstructing the arches on the building outside. The conservatory spanned 15m. To be able to pass building regulations, the conservatory walls had to be made out of curtain walling. All of it was internally glazed. This was all put together inside and then it had to be lifted into position.” He continues, “It was a sizeable project but our experienced fitters had it installed within four days. Our fitters are fantastic and we have a good reputation for not only our products but also our installations.”
