The aesthetic appeal and design flexibility of Senior Architectural Systems’ SF52 curtain walling system has successfully been put to the test at the new University Technical College in Leeds. Designed to maximise the flow of natural light to create an inspirational interior whilst pioneering innovation and energy-efficiency, the UTC Leeds project has benefitted from the attractive narrow frame and enhanced thermal performance of Senior’s aluminium SF52 curtain walling.
Unusually, rather than a new build, this UTC has been created following the restoration of a Grade II industrial factory building.
Fabricated and installed by Granada Glazing Ltd for main contractor BAM Construct UK, the slim sightlines of the SF52 curtain walling perfectly complement the industrial heritage of the building that has been given a new lease of life as an UTC by Race Cottam architects.
The Leeds’ project also features Senior’s robust SD automatic doors.
