Fenestration fit for purpose

A new sports centre situated within the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Sutcliffe Park Nature Reserve is making the most of the natural beauty of its surroundings with an aluminium fenestration package from Senior Architectural Systems.

Installed by Elite Aluminium Systems for main contractor Buckingham Group, the building features Senior’s slim profile SF52 aluminium curtain wall, alongside Senior’s SPW600e aluminium windows and SPW501 commercial aluminium doors which together help to contribute to the centre’s light and modern interior. The use of Senior’s Ali Fold aluminium bi-folding doors to the rear of the building is also said to provide a comfortable viewing area and easy access to the centre’s newly refurbished athletics track.

The new Sutcliffe Park Sports Centre has been designed by HTP Architecture to complement the local environment, with the low profile of the building helping to reduce the visual impact of the scheme. The slim sightlines offered by the narrow yet robust aluminium frames of Senior’s glazing systems have also helped to create a sleek façade design for the new centre that is both stylish and sympathetic to its parkland location.
