Housing scheme gets a new outlook thanks to Senior

  • 7 Aug 2019

Regeneration and the local community have been put at the heart of a vibrant new housing project in Hull, with help from Senior Architectural Solutions.

This project has seen the extensive redevelopment of the former head office building of social enterprise organisation, The Goodwin Development Trust.

Designed by Hodson Architects and comprising 41 new dwellings, the Hugh Webster Place housing scheme features bright and colourful cladding, which has been complemented by the use of Senior Architectural Systems’ slim profile SPW600 aluminium doors and windows.

The fenestration package has been designed, fabricated and installed by Glass & Framing Solutions Ltd for main contractor Houlton & Sons.

The stepped profile and positioning of the development, which increases from two to four storeys from the south to the north, ensures  each of the homes and gardens enjoys adequate levels of daylight.

Framing the residents’ views are Senior’s versatile SPW600 aluminium windows which are ideally suited to the housing sector as they are cost-effective, durable, robust and easy to maintain.

Specified alongside Senior’s SPW600 aluminium single entrance doors to give consistent slim sightlines, Senior’s high performance SPW600 aluminium window system also offers excellent thermal efficiency to easily achieve compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations, with the additional option of an enhanced thermal version for even lower U-values.

The scheme has been designed to offer affordable housing with a reduced energy footprint and as such, sustainability has been built in.

Alongside Senior’s thermally-efficient aluminium windows and doors, the development has been created using off-site timber construction and even features a shared courtyard for growing fruit and vegetables.

Hugh Webster Place won the best Social Housing category at the South Yorkshire & Humberside Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Awards 2019.
