Senior helps build The Arc

Senior Architectural Systems has completed work on the new Arc Cinema in Daventry.

The new cinema’s frontage has been created using a combination of Senior’s thermally-efficient slimline SF52 aluminium curtain wall system, alongside the company’s SPW5021 aluminium commercial doors and low U-value Pure Slide doors.

Senior’s fenestration package was fabricated and installed by supply chain partner, Acorn Aluminium, for main contractor, Willmott Dixon.

The cinema’s extensive use of glazing is designed to flood the main entrance, restaurant and bar areas with natural light during the day, and create a ‘show-stopping’ effect at dusk. The dark grey powder coated frames of the doors and curtain wall systems are designed to complement the exterior facade design of grey and white cladding with feature multicoloured panels. The new Arc cinema in Daventry has been created as part of the wider £12.5m regeneration of the town centre.

Senior has played significant roles in other cinema projects over the last few years, delivering the aluminium fenestration packages for the new Savoy cinema complex in Doncaster as well as completing work for the national chain Everyman.
