Ali VU from Senior Architectural Systems was specified for a new residential development in Liverpool.

Designed by John McCall Architects, the five-storey Lister Gardens apartment scheme in Crosby was inspired by the art deco style of the area’s architecture and, in particular, the former Royal British Legion building nearby.

The scheme comprises 20 one and two-bedroom apartments, all benefiting from Senior’s Ali VU casement windows. As well as emulating the look of heritage style windows, the Ali VU system offers a range of contemporary features including excellent energy efficiency, security and durability.

Featuring a polyamide thermal break, Senior’s Ali VU aluminium double-glazed windows have been designed to achieve a Window Energy Rating of A, with the triple glazed option designed to achieve a rating of A+. The Ali VU windows also meet the requirements of PAS 24 and Approved Document Q.

Suitable for both residential and commercial schemes, Senior’s Ali VU windows also offer design flexibility, with a choice of configurations, including standard or ovolo feature outerframe, flat faced, stepped face or radius vents, and square or chamfered beads.

The slim profile aluminium frame of the new Ali VU window can accept glazing up to 44mm thick, and is available in a low-maintenance powder-coated or anodised finish.

Senior’s thermally efficient SPW600 aluminium commercial doors were also fabricated and installed to the development’s main communal entrances by Kingfisher Windows for main contractor M&Y Maintenance and Construction, and property developers Redwing.
