A duo of our sustainable aluminium solutions from were used for St Margaret’s Bus Station in Leicester, the UK’s first carbon neutral bus station.
Designed by architects BDP, the bus station features our popular SF52 curtain wall system for the perfect combination of design flexibility and enhanced thermal performance. The system has been weather tested and offers full cradle to cradle recyclability, making it the ideal choice for the bus station’s sustainability credentials.
Our SPW501 aluminium door system was also selected for St Margaret’s Bus Station thanks to its suitability for high traffic commercial environments. All our products were fabricated and installed by Elite Aluminium Systems Ltd for main contractor Morgan Sindall.
The award-winning regeneration of St Margaret’s Bus Station was supported by the allocation of £10.5 million from the Getting Building Fund, a government scheme designed to deliver jobs, skills and infrastructure across the country. With space for 24 bus bays, the striking building has been designed with sustainability at its heart, and features LED lighting, solar panels, electric bus charging points, and a glazed concourse for maximising natural light and reducing energy consumption.
