A focal point of the new medical centre is the large atrium waiting room and reception area. Designed by architects Austin Smith Lords, the entrance uses Seniors SCW aluminium curtain walling system to provide large amounts of natural light and stunning views across the common.
The Primary Care Resource Centre has also benefitted from the use of two of Seniors aluminium door solutions, designed for use in high traffic commercial environments.
In addition to the use of the thermally efficient aluminium SPW 600/e window system, Seniors thermally broken polyamide SPW 501 commercial door system has been specified for the centres automatic doors and emergency exits.
Seniors portfolio of products have helped contribute to the new facility achieving a BREEAM rating of very good.
The Buckley-based medical centre, which houses two GP practices and a self-contained pharmacy unit, has been developed by the Healthcare Property Company (Wales) to provide a modern healthcare facility for the local Buckley community.
Prior to the project, Senior has had a well-established relationship with Flintshire based aluminium fabricator and installer CS Aluminium Windows – who recently became the first company to install Seniors new PURe window system on a residential contract.
Sharon Edwards from CS Aluminium Windows said: Over the past three years we have undergone a period of expansion and investment and we wanted to use the new medical centre in our home town to showcase our capabilities.
With the help of Senior Architectural Systems we have been able to achieve a cost effective high performance fenestration solution for this project by integrating different systems from within Seniors product range.
