H&B Design Consultants Extends Abbotsford Hotel

The Abbotsford Hotel in Ayr, Scotland was determined to make full use of an existing courtyard at the rear of the hotel and to offer additional function facilities such as weddings and conferences etc.

Nick Booth, Director of H&B Design Consultants commented ‘we were contacted back in September last year by award winning company Solayr with a project to put a glazed extension on the back of a hotel in Ayr’.

Gordon Fisher, owner of Solayr, asked H&B Design to design and cost for a glass roof with a feature lantern, along with an entrance canopy opening out onto the new proposed gardens. Gordon commented ‘With Solayr having a reputation for providing a professional product and service, we are very particular with whom we work with as our name is our biggest selling point. Having worked with Glenn and Nick on several large span and commercial projects over the years, I knew exactly who to turn to when it came down to the design and fabrication of the portal and roof’.

Nick continued ‘Once the design and costs had been agreed, Gordon encountered problem after problem getting Scottish Building Approval due to the nature of the conservatory. Both Solayr and H&B Design Consultants proved through structural calculations and thermal calculations that the conservatory passed all the stringent criteria required’.

Approval was granted in early February 2006 and the portal and roof were then put into manufacture. Solayr in the meantime demolished the existing toilet blocks and prepared the ground and buildings ready for the installation of the portal and roof.

Installation took place last week in March with minimal disruption to the hotel and once the portal, roof and windows had been installed, Solayr continued with the rebuilding of a new toilet block and storage facilities.

Completion of the project and handover were carried out in early June this year and already the hotel has benefited from its new extension to good effect with several functions. The Hunters, owners of the hotel, are delighted with the outcome of the conservatory.
