Located to the west of Telford town centre, Lawley Village is one of the largest sustainable urban extensions in the UK. With over 3,000 new homes planned over the next 20 years the scheme is already transforming this former mining area.
At the heart of the new village is Lawley Square, which will provide community and leisure facilities as well as commercial and retail units to inject vitality and make Lawley village an exciting place to live.
Adding character to the 17 hectacre site has been a priority for Telford & Wrekin Council and the Lawley Village steering group. So when it came to the design of the Anytime Fitness Centre which will provide 24 hour leisure facilities for the village, adding a WOW factor was considered essential.
The solution was to incorporate an impressive faceted curtain wall, which would give both a stunning façade and a light and airy space in which to workout. Development guidelines also highlighted sustainability as an important consideration which is why Senior’s Hybrid Series 3 curtain wall was chosen for the project by Clegg Construction.
The internal spruce of the Hybrid curtain wall adds a natural look and feel to the spacious gym whilst the external aluminium gives high durability and low maintenance. But just as important, the system’s high recyclability, excellent thermal properties and local fabrication by Insight Architectural Glazing also gives a more sustainable building fit for future generations.
