Fenestration solutions light up quay project

SENIOR Architectural Systems has completed a fourth project for Manchester Life after supplying a full aluminium fenestration package for the developer’s new Lampwick Quay apartment scheme.

The project comprises 213 apartments across three blocks of five, six and ten-storeys, with ground floor retail units and communal facilities including a gym and residents club room. A mix of Senior’s aluminium windows, commercial doors and curtain wall solutions have been used  throughout and installed by Aire Valley Architectural Aluminium for contractor John Sisk & Son Ltd.

To reduce heat loss and energy costs, Senior said its low U-value and Part L-compliant PURe aluminium casement windows were specified.

Energy efficiency has also been addressed in the communal, retail and ground floor areas through the use of Senior’s thermally-enhanced SF52 aluminium curtain wall system, which is said to maximise the controlled use of natural light.

Senior’s SPW501 aluminium commercial doors were installed to the main entrance and exit points. The system meets the requirements of Secured By Design.
