An assortment of aluminium doors, windows and curtain walling from Senior Architectural Systems has been specified at Berry Court, a new private rental scheme in Bournemouth.

Designed by BrightSpace Architects, the new development of 113 apartments close to the town centre and beach has helped breathe new life into the area following the redevelopment of what was once a public car park.

A creative collaboration

Collaboration has been an integral part of the creation of Berry Court, with the development delivered by Bournemouth Development Company, a joint venture between Bournemouth Borough Council and Morgan Sindall Investments. The contract to supply the fenestration was won by Senior in partnership with long-term supply chain partner Soundcraft and main contractor Morgan Sindall, with whom Senior has an established trading agreement.

Having worked with Morgan Sindall and Soundcraft on previous contracts, Senior was able to bring added value to the project in terms of technical information and value-engineered solutions to assist with budgetary and time constraints. Positive and early engagement with the main contractor was instrumental in the architect’s original specification of a competitor’s product range being changed to Senior’s high performance aluminium fenestration systems.

Senior's package deal

The fenestration package includes products from across Senior’s range of aluminium fenestration solutions.

The attractive facade pays homage to the Art Deco style of Bournemouth’s architecture and is enhanced by the specification of Senior’s SPW600e aluminium tilt and turn windows. With high thermal and weathering performance, the SPW600e window provides a robust and low maintenance solution that meets the demands of the private rental sector.

The individual apartments also feature Senior’s energy-efficient Pure Slide aluminium doors, which incorporate a patented PUR thermal break that helps achieve low U-values, reducing heating costs and the overall carbon calculations of the scheme. Ideally suited for residential schemes, Pure Slide aluminium doors also offer excellent acoustic performance.

The doors provide access and natural ventilation and maximise the sense of natural light and space in the building. To ensure safety, and as a bespoke design feature, Soundcraft also designed a Juliet balcony system that was subject to stringent strength and load-bearing tests by Senior prior to installation.

The Berry Court scheme also features Senior’s versatile and slimline SF52 aluminium curtain walling and high performance automatic SPW501 aluminium doors, which have been installed at the main entrance of the building. The SF52 curtain walling provides a frameless design with glass-to-glass corner detailing for maximum design flexibility.
