A series of aluminium windows, curtain walling and doors from Senior Architectural Systems have been specified for use in Leeds’ recent Concordia Works development.
The development project, which has been carried out by Firecrest Construction for Boultbee Brooks Real Estate, involved the complete renovation and refurbishment of a disused yarn and cord warehouse, which dates back to the early 1900s.
The redesigned building offers a combination of traditional and contemporary styles, retaining some of its original features. Based on Sovereign Street, in close proximity to Leeds’ central transport links, it makes an ideal urban office space.
Aluminium curtain walling from Senior Architectural Systems was specified to achieve Gpad London’s – the project’s architect – vision for the building’s exterior.
Paired with the company’s dark coloured, slim framed SPW 300 aluminium windows, the SF52 curtain walling offers a contemporary finish, which simultaneously pays homage to the industrial history of the former warehouse.
The curtain walling has been used to create the feature glazed arches to the entrance level of the building. Similar window arches have been installed to the higher storeys.
Senior has also supplied its SPW 500 doors, which have been designed specifically for use in commercial buildings where a high-level of traffic is to be expected.
