Senior frames the view

Aluminium doors and windows from Senior Architectural Systems have been used to frame the views enjoyed by the residents of the new Berry Court private rental scheme in Bournemouth, designed by Bright Space Architects.

The contract to supply the fenestration package for Berry Court is the latest to be delivered by Senior in partnership with long-term supply chain partners Soundcraft and main contractor Morgan Sindall, with whom Senior has an established trading agreement.

The attractive facade design of the scheme, which pays homage to the Art Deco style that is evident in much of Bournemouth’s architectural heritage, has been enhanced through the specification of Senior’s SPW600e aluminium tilt and turn windows, which also offer high thermal and weathering performance.

The apartments also benefit from Senior’s energy efficient PURe Slide aluminium doors which incorporate a PUR thermal break to help achieve low U-values to reduce both the heating costs and the overall carbon calculations of the scheme. Ideally suited for residential schemes, the aluminium door also offers excellent acoustic performance.

Soundcraft’s commercial manager Michael Bishop said: “As Senior can provide the full range of products we need to be able to deliver large scale fenestration contracts such as this, the whole process becomes more efficient, and there are greater opportunities to add value. A prime example of this was the development of the bespoke Juliet balconies which were designed by Soundcraft and fully tested by Senior to ensure a high quality and reliable solution.”
