3D Wall Panels - Bespoke Specification on Curves vtec

This imposing building on Salford Quays is home to one of the largest leisure and entertainment venues in the UK outside of London. Hosting a variety of live events and exhibitions it is undeniably one of the favourite leisure spots for Mancunians and has recently upgraded its dining facilities to create a larger, more flexible space with stunning views over the quay.
The extensive refurbishment project with a budget of £3m was completed in just 12 weeks due to designers’ savvy choice of materials among other factors. The preference was given to cladded finishes which enabled shorter turnaround on site.
Vtec 3D panels in Ripple 2-2 design, finished in Hacienda Black were selected for the walls.
Reflecting the fluid architecture of the space, the panels impressively hug the curved walls to create a smooth path that directs the visitors from the striking entrance to the dining zone.

The choice of dark wood effect finish evokes more intimate and luxurious ambience – perfect for pre-theatre dinners offered by the restaurant.
All panels were produced to precise dimensions and the installers followed exact lay-out drawings, ensuring that the design’s pattern flows seamlessly from one panel to another.
