High performance aluminium curtain walling, doors and windows from Senior Architectural Systems have helped transform a derelict Victorian school into a bright and modern place of worship in the heart of Sheffield.
The Mission Hub is a part of the Catholic Diocese of Hallam; the old school building has been reimagined by Jump Architects to provide a flexible and functional space that comprises places to socialise, study and reflect.
Senior has supplied the full fenestration package for the new church, with the fabrication and installation undertaken by supply chain partner Allied Glazing Systems for main contractor T & C Williams.
The original building, which dates back to 1863, has been renovated throughout and features Senior’s SPW600 aluminium windows and robust SPW501 aluminium commercial doors.
The striking arched windows of the former school have been given a new lease of life, with Senior’s slim-profile window system adapted to replicate the look of a traditional steel window.
To provide the users of the church with additional space and to flood the interior with natural light, Senior’s thermally-enhanced SF52 aluminium curtain wall system has been used to create a striking link between the old building and the new purpose-built extension.
Highly durable and providing a low-maintenance solution, Senior’s aluminium fenestration products were specified in a matt black finish to further complement the period features of the original Victorian building.
Phil Goy, director of Allied Glazing Systems, said: “We are very proud of our work at the Mission Hub and thank T& C Williams for the opportunity to provide first class windows, doors and curtain walling from the Senior Architectural Systems’ extensive range.”
