Senior Architectural Systems’ PURe aluminium window system and SF52 aluminium curtain walling system have been installed by Anders Glass as part of the redevelopment of Fleetwood Town FC’s training ground.
The League One club’s new training complex at Poolfoot Farm is made up of new grass pitches and a pavilion style football academy building. The facilities boast a range of features including FA standard changing rooms, a gym, classrooms and a lounge bar.
The development was designed by Croft Goode Architects, benefitting heavily from the use of BIM to determine which products would best suit the build.
The PURe aluminium system developed by Senior was fabricated and installed by Anders Glass, who worked closely with main contractor F Parkinson Ltd to realise the design team’s overall vision.
Senior’s PURe window system uses an innovative thermal barrier manufactured from expanded polyurethane foam (PUR) which, used together with Guardian SN70/37 solar control glass, achieved the required sustainable design and low u-value targets specified.
In addition to reducing the building’s overall carbon calculations, the PURe system was specified for its aesthetically pleasing, slim 52mm sightlines and to provide the Anders team with a system that could be easily fabricated to be externally or internally beaded.
Senior’s SPW600e windows were also used to create a new viewing area.
Chosen in a tilt-and-turn configuration, the windows were also enhanced using solar control glass to minimise heat gain and glare. The company’s SPW500 entrance doors completed the specification.
Carl White, project manager at Anders Glass, commented that the company was proud to have been involved in the creation of the football club’s new training facilities. He said: “This was a design and build project and so we worked closely with both the main contractor and architects throughout the construction programme to manage the coordination between the glazing packages and the other interfaces of the building envelope.
The reliability and high-quality of Senior’s products played an important part in the successful delivery of the contract and as one of the first installers to work with Senior’s new PURe windows, we were very impressed with the system’s flexibility and ease of fabrication. Similarly, we were able to easily fabricate the SF52 curtain walling at our own factory for assembly on site, helping to improve efficiency and accuracy during the installation process.”
