Senior Architectural Systems’ SF52 aluminium curtain wall system was used to create the façade in a new £22m sports and leisure centre in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, to help improve the energy-efficiency of the scheme whilst maximising the use of natural daylight.

Senior worked with Crown Doors and Shutters Ltd and main contractor Tolent Construction to deliver the landmark scheme which replaces the town’s previous leisure centre.

To ensure the town’s existing Swan Centre could remain operational throughout, the new leisure centre was constructed in two phases with the project team working closely to carefully coordinate each element of the build to limit the disruption to the local community.

Senior has a history of playing a role in the leisure sector and has provided aluminium fenestration solutions for a number of contracts across the UK, including being specified for leisure chain David Lloyd’s flagship club in Bristol. 

Senior’s SF52 curtain wall can be specified as capped, silicone sealed or as a combination of the two for even greater design flexibility. Thanks to Senior’s in-house powder coating facility, the SF52 system is available in an almost unlimited range of colours and finishes.
