Renovated General Gordon Hotel with Breezway Powerlouvre Windows


The General Gordon Hotel was due for major renovations in 2018 and CVD Commercial Glass & Aluminium Windows were originally contracted to install the glazing until the hotel was burnt down by fire.

The scope of works had then changed and was in planning for over a year until it was agreed upon and approved by all involved.

CVD’s scope was to supply and install the Breezway Altair Powerlouvre™ System in an Alspec Airflo Louvre Frame with Viridian glass blades to high level windows including the Gaming Room’s frameless automatic doors, the Hotel Room’s shower screens and frameless entry doors.

This project had strict working conditions and the highest of safety measures all workers had to abide by. The Hotel is owned by the JDA Hotels Group and was set out to become an outstanding Pub which boosts the highest of quality internal finishes.

The new look of the General Gordon Hotel was designed by AVA Architects and includes several distinct spaces. The focal point is the new alfresco courtyard encompassing a sculptural pergola layered with greenery and protected from the elements.

The bright Bistro area is full of eclectic furniture and styling ideal for casual dining. It’s also connected to the revamped Sports Bar which echoes the old-style public bar with its terrazzo floor tiles and historic memorabilia covering the timber walls. There are also eight new accommodation rooms on the first floor.
Chris from CVD states “Both the front and back bars feature charred wood in memory of the 2018 fire and the original heritage façade has been refreshed and revived to its former glory.”

CVD is delighted to have been part of the construction team working alongside Rohrig where they have developed a strong working relationship spanning over five years.
