Senior looks ship-shape at Bristol’s Harbourside

  • 9 Aug 2021

Aluminium windows, doors and curtain wall systems from Senior Architectural Systems create a modern and efficient fenestration package for a new residential development in the heart of Bristol’s historical harbourside.

The second phase of the Wapping Wharf regeneration project comprises two stunning residential buildings, Abel Yard and Hope Quay. This is alongside four new retail units.

Senior’s range

Senior worked closely with its long-term supply chain partner Elite Aluminium Systems to design a fenestration package that would meet the specific needs of the waterside development. This includes Senior’s low maintenance SPW600 aluminium windows and doors.

Senior’s high performance SF52 aluminium curtain wall system also features throughout the scheme to maximise the use of natural light, with the company’s safe and secure SPW501 aluminium commercial doors specified as panic doors with crash bars for the emergency exits.

The large window apertures have been created using a combination of fixed light and tilt and turn SPW600 aluminium windows, and provide the perfect frame for the picturesque views of the harbour and surrounding areas.

The light and airy apartments also benefit from Senior’s inward opening SPW600 aluminium doors, which provide ventilation and open up the living space further with access to either full or Juliet-style balconies.

The highly durable aluminium construction of Senior’s glazing systems makes them ideally suited for use on coastal and waterside buildings, with the fenestration package complementing the wharf-style design of the buildings which feature an attractive mix of brick, stone and iron materials.

Developed by Umberslade and Muse Developments in a joint venture, constructed by Balfour Beatty and designed by award winning Alec French Architects, the development also pays homage to the rich history of the area by incorporating the restored early 19th Century Grade II listed Gaol Gate to create a feature entrance to the neighbourhood.
