AAAG Ltd were selected to design, manufacture and install the glazing for the new Fusion Student Accommodation in Hatfield. The project consisted of 6 separate student blocks incorporating Technal MX52 Curtain Walling system, Technal FY65 Window, Smart SmartWall Doors and the Deceuninck 2500 PVC-u Windows. Fixed aluminium louvres were also installed within the Curtain Walling and Windows to achieve a Grade A weather rating. Due to the location of the site and the busy roads surrounding the site, the Windows and Curtain walling had to achieve high acoustic values to assist with the comfort of the Students and Hotel guests. Along with this, acoustic tricklevents were provided that also had to achieve extremely high ventilation performances within the Student residences, which were all designed over several months of meetings with ISG’s design team, the Architects, the M&E consultants and the acousticians.

ISG simultaneously refurbished the iconic Comet Hotel. The Grade II Listed Art Deco building underwent an extensive remodel and reopened in 2019 as a luxury hotel. Showcasing a lantern manufactured from the Smart Heritage Window system has meant that an important design feature of the original building has been re-installed many years after its removal. The Windows and Doors to the existing hotel were refurbished Crittall Windows. The supply of which, was project managed by AAAG Ltd utilising our dedicated supply chain.
