Cotton Field Wharf

Cotton Field Wharf is the first scheme to be completed as part of Manchester Life’s plans to create over 1000 new private rental homes across the Ancoats area of Manchester.

The 302 new apartments benefit from the use of Senior’s patented PURe® aluminium casement windows, which offer some of the lowest U-values available on the UK market.

Senior’s PURe® FOLD aluminium doors open onto private terraces, many of which enjoy picturesque waterside views overlooking the New Islington Marina. On the lower levels, Senior’s slim profile aluminium SF52 curtain walling system has been used to frame the communal areas, which include a gym and club room, and maximise the sense of light and space. Senior’s robust and secure SPW501 commercial aluminium doors complete the development’s attractive glazing package.

Through early engagement with Elite Aluminium Systems, our specification team were able to review the initial specification for the project and pioneer the use of Senior’s PURe® system. Elite successfully demonstrated that unlike alternative products, PURe® aluminium windows and doors could provide exceptionally low U-values at a competitive cost. Quality and reliability were assured thanks to Senior’s advanced in-house powder coating facility and standard 25-year warranty on all coatings.
