Low U-value Pure doors and SF52 curtain walling by Senior Architectural Systems have been specified to open up the campus views at the Arts University Bournemouth
Aluminium fenestration solutions from Senior Architectural Systems have been specified for student accommodation at the Arts University Bournemouth.
The development in Wallisdown, Poole comprises three buildings spread across 11 blocks of three and four storeys. The accommodation is set around a landscaped courtyard with feature corner windows providing far-reaching views.
Senior worked alongside supply chain partners Morgan Sindall, Design Engine Architects and fabricators Soundcraft on the project.
Senior's patented low U-value Pure commercial doors and Pure Slide aluminium doors were installed alongside the thermally efficient SF52 aluminium curtain wall system, with the scheme achieving a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating.
The project also features the firm's thermally broken SPW500 aluminium commercial doors and SPW600 aluminium windows. For additional safety and security, Senior’s barrier load tested Louvre Guard System has been fitted to all bedroom and kitchen windows.
Senior’s aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling combine slim sightlines with durable aluminium and exceptional thermal performance. They have been used extensively in the education and commercial residential sectors.
The patented Pure aluminium system is well suited to schemes where sustainability and efficiency are key priorities, with Senior's range offering some of the lowest U-values available on the UK market.
As well as helping to contribute to lower energy bills thanks to the inherent strength of the aluminium frame, the Pure system also offers a cost-effective alternative to energy efficient triple-glazing which, when used in high-traffic environments such as schools and student accommodation buildings, has a greater risk of breaking and would be more expensive to replace.
