Senior Architectural Systems’ slimline SF52 aluminium curtain wall system has proved to be the perfect fit for a new £22m sports and leisure centre in Northumberland.
Designed by GT3 Architects, the new state of the art Berwick leisure centre features a striking glazed façade which thanks to Senior’s slim profile SF52 system, creates an inviting and welcoming main entrance. The thermally-enhanced aluminium curtain wall system will also help improve the energy-efficiency of the scheme whilst maximising the use of natural daylight.
Senior worked closely with specialist contractor Crown Doors and Shutters Limited and main contractor Tolent Construction Ltd to deliver the landmark leisure scheme which is set to breathe new life into the area by replacing the town’s previous leisure centre. To ensure the town’s existing Swan Centre could remain operational throughout, the new leisure centre was constructed in two phases with the project team working closely to carefully coordinate each element of the build to limit the disruption to the local community.
Senior has a long history of playing an active role in the leisure sector and has provided aluminium fenestration solutions for a number of contracts across the UK, including being specified for leisure chain David Lloyd’s flagship club in Bristol.
Senior’s SF52 aluminium system features attractive slim sightlines and enhanced thermal performance to help boost energy-efficiency. Available as a mullion drained system which removes the need for visible drainage slots, Senior’s SF52 curtain wall can be specified as capped, silicone sealed or as a combination of the two for even greater design flexibility. Thanks to Senior’s in-house powder coating facility, the SF52 system is available in an almost unlimited range of colours and finishes.
