Senior’s Central Role In University Of Stirling’s New Campus Project

by | Mar 30, 2022 | On-Site

Aluminium fenestration solutions provider Senior Architectural Systems has delivered its third contract for the University of Stirling, following the completion of the University’s new Campus Central development.

Designed by Page and Park architects, the new scheme marks the University of Stirling’s largest ever investment in its infrastructure and sees the creation of a multi-functional community hub which brings together student services, study areas, cafés and social spaces. The building features a variety of aluminium fenestration systems from Senior, including its slimline SF52 aluminium curtain wall system and patented low U-value PURe aluminium windows, which have been fabricated and installed by supply chain partner Marshall Brown for main contractor Robertson Construction.

Senior’s fenestration systems have been previously used on both the University of Stirling’s new state of the art sports centre, which opened in 2020, and the INTO Centre, an international student facility which was constructed in 2017. The new Campus Central building has helped further improve the University’s impressive facilities, with the stunning three-storey building benefiting from a landscaped courtyard and glazed facades which frame the breath-taking views of the surrounding scenery. Located next to Airthrey Loch, the building is also flanked by the beautiful Ochil and Campsie Hills.

The sleek, aluminium frames of Senior’s SF52 curtain wall system complements the use of granite rainscreen and light grey stone cladding, and floods the interior spaces with natural light. The thermal performance of the SF52 curtain walling has also been enhanced with the use of Senior’s low U-value PURe® aluminium windows throughout. Senior’s PURe aluminium window system has the potential to achieve U-values as low as 0.73W/m2K when calculated as a commercial CEN Standard window, claims the company.

For durability, safety and security Senior’s robust SPW501 aluminium commercial doors, certified to both PAS24 and Secured by Design standards, were also installed at all entrances to cope with the expected heavy footfall.
