With a range of tried and tested fenestration solutions for the education sector, Senior Architectural Systems has supplied aluminium doors, windows and curtain walling for use on a landmark primary school at the centre of a new community development in Lincolnshire.
Located to the south of Newark, Middlebeck is a 694-acre urban extension which will provide new housing, access to local amenities and a new purpose built primary school.
The Christ Church C of E Primary School has been constructed by the Lindum Group and designed by Gollifer Langston Architects. Senior’s aluminium fenestration systems were fabricated and installed by specialist contractor Alusec.
The attractive and contemporary design of the new school building embraces the use of natural daylighting and the extensive use of glazing helps to strengthen the connection between interior and exterior spaces.
Senior’s slimline SF52 aluminium curtain wall system has created a light and welcoming entrance, with Senior’s versatile SPW600 aluminium windows and secure SPW501 aluminium commercial doors used throughout.
Robust and fully recyclable, Senior’s aluminium fenestration systems were powder-coated to further enhance durability and to complement the white brise-soleil installed to the south side of the building to help control solar gain.
Additional solar shading protection from the overhanging roof, in addition to the use of natural ventilation, photovoltaic roof panels and underfloor heating also contribute to the overall sustainable design of the school building.
The L shape plan of the new school forms two sides of a courtyard, where future developments are planned to further enlarge the school’s facilities and intake.
