Senior Architectural Systems’ slimline SF52 aluminium curtain walling system proved just the ticket in creating a bright and modern façade of the new-look bus station in Rawtenstall, Lancashire.
Built to replace the town’s dilapidated bus station, which dated back to the 1970s, the new £3.5m transport hub has been designed by Day Architects, with the intention to give passengers a more pleasant travelling experience.
Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain wall system was installed by UK Curtain Walling for RTB Projects and has been used throughout the new station to open up the main entrance and stand areas.
Maximising the flow of natural light during the day, the extensive use of glazed curtain walling also transforms the facility at dusk, creating an eye-catching addition to the town’s urban landscape.
Duncan Hague, MD of UK Curtain Walling Ltd, commented: “The creation of the new bus station in Rawtenstall presented numerous technical and logistical challenges which were successfully overcome by all those involved and we are both proud and delighted to have played a part.”
As well as offering aesthetic value, the enhanced thermal performance and robust construction of Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain wall system has helped create a more comfortable and energy-efficient interior environment, which is a far cry from the original cold and leaky bus station.
The durability and minimal maintenance requirements offered by Senior’s SF52 aluminium system make it a cost-effective choice for such high-traffic environments and thanks to the cradle-to-cradle recyclability of aluminium, the sustainability of the solution is assured.
