Developed by Manchester Life, the residential project will see the construction of over 300 new rental homes on New Union Street.
Senior Architectural Systems was commissioned by the project’s primary contractor, John Sisk & Son, and fabricator, Elite Aluminium Systems, to deliver a comprehensive fenestration package. Its patented PURe aluminium windows will be installed to provide thermal efficiency throughout the complex.
The contract is Senior’s largest order of PURe windows to date.
PURe was recommended by Elite Aluminium Systems, after the initial specification for the project was received. The company had installed the system on a number of schools, in previous collaborations with Interserve; it was impressed by each unit’s attractive powder coated finish and ability to provide low U-values.
The aluminium system comprises a thermal barrier, manufactured from expanded polyurethane foam (PUR). Traditionally used in cladding and insulation products, PUR enables the PURe range to achieve U-values of 0.71W/m2K when calculated as a commercial CEN standard window.
Senior offers bespoke powder coating at its in-house facility; all coatings benefit from a standard 25 year warranty.
