Senior strengthens supply chain links with new college contracts

from Senior Architectural Systems specified for use on two new college contracts. Senior has supplied the glazing packages


for both the new Lancashire Energy HQ at Blackpool & Flyde College and the Advanced Skills and Innovation Centre (ASIC) at Wakefield College in West Yorkshire, working with fabricator and installer Aire Valley Architectural Aluminium Ltd and main contractor Bardsley Construction to deliver the design vision of architects IBI Group. Combining attractive slim sightlines and

high thermal performance, the building envelope of both college buildings has benefitted from products from Senior’s exten- sive range of aluminium doors, windows and curtain walling systems. Reflecting the college’s focus on training

for the renewable energy sector, the new Lancashire Energy HQ at Blackpool & Flyde

ollaboration and repeat business with key supply chain partners has seen aluminium glazing solutions

College boasts a sustainable design scheme which includes a living green wall and an energy-efficient glazing package. The improved thermal performance and slim sightlines offered by Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain walling made it the ideal choice to create the college’s attractive double-height atrium and striking faceted entrance, which also features Senior’s robust SPW500 aluminium doors. Further contributing to the building’s BREEAM rating of ‘excellent’ are Senior’s thermally-broken SPW600e aluminium windows.

Jeckells sets pupils in the shade

Jeckells’ the Sailmakers has installed three tensioned canopies over outside learning areas at Icknield School in Letchworth. Working closely with architects, Wilby & Burnett, Jeckells fabricated the canopies, sourced the stainless steel posts with red post bumpers and

organised full installation to fit in with the school’s demanding schedule. Ferrari Soltis 86 premium mesh material was used due it its strength and durability. In recent years Jeckells has built up a reputa- tion for the design and manufacture of quality shade sails with an almost unlimited degree of versatility in design, colour and materials.

UK designed and manufactured, Powermatic controlled, concealed door closers, by Samuel Heath, deliver a host of benefits for educational learning and accommodation buildings.

Meeting all relevant fire performance and accessibility requirements, Powermatic door closers also help to create safer buildings and reduce maintenance costs.

Being totally invisible when the door is closed and having few parts on show when the door is open, Powermatic is less likely to be vandalised than surface-mounted devices. This reduces the risk of a fire door being rendered inactive by a damaged door closer and means that maintenance or repair costs are minimised.

Also designed by IBI Group, the new ASIC building at Wakefield College features the same specification of aluminium fenestration solutions from Senior which have once again been installed by Aire Valley Architectural Ltd for main contractor Bardsley Construction Ltd. Here, Senior’s SF52 curtain walling has been used to add further interest to the building’s attractive façade design which features a mix of masonry brickwork and coloured cladding panels. The modern design of the new-build three storey building maximises the use of light and space, with the slim profile of Senior’s SF52 curtain walling system and SPW600e aluminium windows helping to create a welcoming and comfortable learning environment.
