Emirates Old Trafford update 10 – Hilton Garden Inn nearing completion

Precast concrete, structural steelwork and insitu concrete

PCE Ltd have designed the Hilton Gardens Inn at Lancashire Cricket Club’s Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground using precast concrete, structural steelwork and insitu concrete to ensure that all the benefits of their Hybrid structures approach are fully realised.

PCE were appointed by Galliford Try Construction and project architects are ICA, a 50 strong architecture and interior design studio with offices in Glasgow and London.

The Hotel has two structural precast cores and also consists of precast concrete columns, beams, hollowcore flooring, internal cross walls, and external architectural finished precast walls. Cantilever balconies from level 2 to 5 are supported from 325mm deep x 1200mm wide slabs containing reinforced thermal breaks.

PCE are also responsible for the transfer deck at level 1 which are formed with 250mm thick hollowcore planks and a 100mm insitu structural topping. Delta Beams and other structural steel members are also incorporated into the transfer deck to distribute the significant loadings from the floors above  to the supporting precast columns which come off piled foundations.
