Ideally suited to the healthcare sector, aluminium fenestration systems can offer huge benefits in terms of aesthetics, durability and efficiency and thanks to Senior Architectural Systems, specifiers can access a full range of solutions from one sole supplier.
With a proven track record of delivering contracts that meet the specific performance and budgetary requirements of this challenging sector, Senior’s work in the healthcare market includes the recently completed Sir Robert Ogden MacMillan Centre in Northallerton. Designed by P+HS Architects, the new state of the art cancer care facility is circular in form with the extensive use of Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain walling providing maximum views of the surrounding landscaped gardens. As well as helping to achieve the require levels of daylighting, Senior’s thermally-enhanced aluminium curtain walling has been integrated with Senior’s patented low U-value PURe® aluminium windows to provide ventilation and further contribute to the overall efficiency of the building envelope.
The new healthcare centre’s extensive fenestration package also includes two of Senior’s high-performance commercial doors systems, with automatic SD aluminium doors installed to the main entrance and the robust SPW500 doors, which are ideal for high traffic applications, used throughout to give interior and exterior access. Senior’s products were fabricated and installed by Topside Group for main contractor Interserve Construction.
Senior’s flexible range of aluminium fenestration solutions is supported by in-house technical expertise that can help those working in the healthcare sector identity the best value package for all their refurbishment and new build projects. Senior’s team of experience architectural advisors can work with specifiers every step of the way to advise on the most suitable products to help reduce maintenance costs as well as offering valuable technical support from assisting with accessibility requirements and to providing detailed thermal calculations.
