Lanka Aluminium Industries PLC recently announced that it has been awarded a contract by Softlogic City Hotels Ltd – the franchise holder of Mövenpick Hotels Corporation – to design, supply and install the Façade and Window systems for the new Mövenpick Hotel which is currently under construction in Colombo 3.
The Mövenpick Hotel Colombo is a 200 room business hotel spread over 24 storeys. The unique framing structure for the Front Facade which ranges from the 6th to the 22nd floor is being developed by Lanka Aluminium in collaboration with an overseas Systems Design House to bring to life the vision of well-known Architect Murad Ismail of MICD, and will probably be the first such intricately detailed glazed façade to be installed on a building in Sri Lanka.
The aluminium window systems have been specifically designed by Lanka Aluminium, to meet the stringent specifications associated with developments of this nature and will be custom manufactured at Lanka Aluminium’s new plant situated in Ekala according to international parameters and construction specifications for ease of fixing and ease of maintenance. These window systems have been laboratory tested to conform to international standards.
Installation of the window systems will begin in June and end in mid-2015 in time for the scheduled launch.
“We always offer high quality products at competitive prices to our customers. Our extrusion systems are modern designs manufactured to international standards, easy to fit and are of great value,” said Dinal Peiris.
“We take this opportunity to thank Softlogic City Hotels and MICD, the Consultants, for selecting us, a local manufacturer to supply their aluminium façade and window requirements,” he added.
Lanka Aluminium PLC, a public quoted company established in 1986, is Sri Lanka’s premier manufacturer of aluminium extrusions which are used in the finest high-rise buildings. It is a member of a highly diversified International Group which has a varied portfolio of manufacturing businesses both here in Sri Lanka as well as overseas.
