Led by the University of Sunderland and designed by GSS Architecture, Hope Street Xchange is a new commercial development that mixes distinctive modern architecture with the sensitive refurbishment of a grade II listed building to provide a contemporary new workspace. The glazing package for the building was installed by Hadrian Architectural Glazing Systems for main contractor Clugston Construction and features Senior’s slim profile SF52 aluminium curtain wall, SD and SPW500 aluminium doors and the patented thermally-enhanced PURe aluminium window system.

Senior’s PURe aluminium windows, which are the first on the UK market to feature a high performance thermal barrier manufactured from expanded polyurethane foam (PUR), played a key role in ensuring the project’s stringent U-values and energy-efficiency targets were met.

As a modern extension to a grade II building, Senior’s fenestration solutions were required to seamlessly integrate with the existing sandstone rainscreen and the existing architecture. The flexibility offered by Senior’s product range was also a key benefit as it enabled the glazing systems to be sealed rather than fixed into the neighbouring building.
