Trio of Senior products for residential scheme

Senior Architectural Systems has provided three different solutions to help complete The Barnum – a new residential development on Nottingham’s Queen’s Road.

Designed by Franklin Ellis Architects, and built by main contractor Graham Construction, the new nine storey building has been developed by Blockworks, a joint venture between Bloc Group and Network Rail.

The project, which is said to be one of the largest recent developments in the city, has been built on what was a vacant site next to Nottingham’s railway station, helping to regenerate the wider area and provide a boost to the local rental market.

Senior collaborated with specialist installer, Duplus Architectural Systems, to specify three of its most popular products, including its award-winning Pure window system which has been installed throughout the 345 individual apartments. Producing exceptionally low U-values thanks to its patented thermal design, both tilt/turn and casement window styles have been used.

Safety and security throughout the development has also been enhanced through the use of Senior’s SPW501 aluminium commercial door. This high performance, thermally broken polyamide aluminium framing system is ideal for busy environments and is available in multiple configurations and designs.

On the ground floor communal areas, the façade design has benefitted from Senior’s slimline SF52 aluminium curtain wall system.
