JAMES & TAYLOR CELEBRATE LORD MAYOR’S DESIGN AWARD WIN
Cladding specialist James & Taylor is celebrating a public design award for work undertaken on the Staybridge Suites in Newcastle.
The win comes as a result of a public vote that saw local people choose Staybridge Suites over a selection of local shortlisted entries in ‘The People’s Choice Award’ category as part of ‘The Lord Mayor’s Design Awards’. The project also received a commendation in the New Building category.
‘The Lord Mayor’s Award’ was set up to celebrate the contributions made to improve the appearance of the city. The judges felt that the architects should be commended for their attempts to provide a high quality design which puts the building at the top end of its particular hotel market.
The project involved the use Alphaton cladding (852.52m² 212.5x840mm & 910.35m² 212.5x900mm, sand standard) and brick (74,800 215 x 102.5 x 65mm Smooth Charcoal Facings, 33 215 x 102.5 x 65mm Solid Smooth Charcoal Facing Bricks BD1.3) products.

We are deeply honoured to be playing a role in an award that has been chosen by the people of Newcastle.”.
