Senior Architectural Systems has played a key role in the creation of a new multi-storey residential development in Birmingham.
Located in the heart of the city centre, The Toybox offers luxury student accommodation over 15-storeys and has been designed by Corstorphine + Wright architects.
The building’s striking curved façade, which creates a cantilevered canopy over the main entrance, features an attractive mix of green coloured brickwork, zinc cladding and the extensive use of Senior’s slim-profile aluminium glazing.
Helping to maximise the use of daylighting and to provide residents with far-reaching views of the city landscape, each apartment benefits from a glazing package comprising Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain walling and SPW600 aluminium windows.
Both systems, which have been installed by EYG Commercial for main contractor Torsion Group, provide excellent thermal performance to create comfortable interiors that are cost-effective to heat and offer a highly durable and low-maintenance solution.
Senior’s SPW600 aluminium windows, specified as tilt and turn style openings, also provide safe and secure ventilation and can be easily cleaned from the inside.
Nicola Arnott, EYG Commercial’s marketing, said: “We were very pleased to secure this contract on such a high-quality development, led by contractors who have a reputation for transforming buildings in cities into vibrant new communities which breathe new life into the area.
“They have been the latest in a string of student accommodation projects that we have fabricated and installed windows, doors and curtain walling products for, and alongside new hotel developments, this has been an increasing area of our work.”
