Senior Architectural Systems’ Stirling effort

  • 26 Jul 2021

Products from Senior Architectural Systems help to shape the new state of the art sports centre at the University of Stirling.

The eye-catching building features the manufacturer’s high-performance doors, windows and curtain walling.

Designed by Faulkner Browns architects and built by Morrison Construction, the new build facility has been constructed over three levels. This is to complement the existing landscape and maximise the links with the established national swimming and tennis centres which are located on the same site.

A key feature of the new sports centre is the extensive use of glazing, which sees Senior’s thermally-enhanced SF52 curtain wall integrated with the company’s SPW600 aluminium windows.

For safe and secure access, Senior’s robust SPW501 aluminium commercial doors have been used throughout.

Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain wall system has been used on three of the building’s elevations including the striking main entrance. The slim and sleek system opens up the internal space, accentuating the central cylindrical drum in which the main gym is located and framing the vertical timber fins that surround it.  By creating both a focal point within the new sports centre and providing panoramic views of the surrounding area, the glazed façades of the building also help minimise the structure’s impact on the landscape.

Fabrication and installation of the fenestration package for the University of Stirling’s new sports centre was courtesy of specialist contractor Linn-Tech, with whom Senior also worked on the University’s landmark INTO building.  

This three-storey building, designed by architects Page & Park,  provides dedicated teaching and learning space to support students from overseas on their learning journey in the UK and features Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain walling, SMRF frameless casement windows and low U-value PURe® aluminium windows.
