The new £100m Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot, Berkshire has been designed by leading architects BDP and features a range of aluminium fenestration solutions from Senior Architectural Systems.
The ’open’ design of the building features Senior’s slimline SF52 aluminium curtain wall system, with the ground floor areas benefitting from the robust SFG shop front glazing system and integrated SD commercial doors.
To provide safe and secure access, Senior’s SPW501 aluminium commercial doors were chosen for the main access points and the thermally efficient SPW600 aluminium windows star throughout. All Senior’s aluminium fenestration products were expertly fabricated and installed by specialist contractor Soundcraft, for main contractor Kier.
The use of Senior’s energy-efficient aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling complements the new hospital’s other sustainable design features which include photovoltaic solar panels and a green nature roof to manage rainwater absorption.
Senior’s technical team and locally based architectural advisor were also on hand to provide specification support and guidance, including help with U-value calculations and Part L compliance.
The new state of the art building comprises a multitude of resources, from treatment rooms to operating theatres, day and out-patient facilities and specialist x-ray, MRI, and radiology services.
The overall design of the hospital has been greatly influenced by the woodland that surrounds it, with Senior’s aluminium fenestration systems framing the expansive views and maximising the use of natural light.
