Virgin Hotel win for Emtec Core & Protect

Emtec Core & Protect are pleased to announce they have secured the contract to provide the fire protection works at the new prestigious Virgin Hotel in Edinburgh.

They will carry out structural fire protection works which involves encasing the building’s structural steel throughout using Promat’s ‘Vermiculux S’ fire boarding system. This is a specialist boarding system designed to ensure the structural steel maintains its loadbearing capacity for 120 minutes in the event of a fire. The board is also moisture resistant, meaning it can be installed in the early phases of a project before the building is watertight, which is the case on this project.

The hotel is Virgin’s first in the UK and across Europe. Emtec Core & Protect are delighted to be part of such an exciting project in Scotland's capital.
