Senior Levels Up Leeds Student Accommodation

by | Nov 21, 2023 | On-Site

A trio of innovative aluminium solutions from Senior Architectural Systems were used for the Terry Frost Building, a new £30 million luxury student accommodation development in the heart of Leeds’ university hub.

The seven-storey building required a robust yet attractive façade, and Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain wall system provided the ideal solution. Featuring a range of benefits including slim sightlines and enhanced thermal performance to exceed current regulations, as well as excellent weather performance and cradle-to-cradle recyclability, the SF52 curtain wall system combines form and function.

Senior’s popular Pure range of aluminium windows and doors was also utilised throughout the development’s exterior facade. This revolutionary range features an expanded polyurethane thermal barrier for exceptional thermal performance, Part L compliance and ultra-low U-values. The Pure aluminium windows and doors are compatible with each other, as well as Senior’s curtain walling systems including SF52, for a seamless finish.  Senior’s products were fabricated and installed by specialist contractor Elite Aluminium Systems Ltd.

The Terry Frost building was designed by architects Howarth Litchfield Durham and built by main contractor GMI Leeds on behalf of developer Alumno. Managed by student accommodation provider Prestige Student Living, the scheme  provides 411 luxurious en-suite rooms as well as prestigious communal spaces including a lounge, study spaces, gym, games area, café bar and rooftop biodiversity garden. The building’s ground floor also boasts a studio space to support local artists, complete with a kiln.
