Senior’s fenestration systems make a stand at The Strand


Complementary and high-performance aluminium fenestration solutions from Senior Architectural Systems have helped create harmony at The Strand Hub, a new award-winning mixed-used scheme in Rochdale.

Designed by Triangle Architects, the development has transformed a previously neglected area of the town to create new retail units, residential apartments and various community facilities which include a cafe, medical centre and housing advice centre.

The glazing package includes Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain wall system and SPW501 aluminium commercial doors, which were fabricated and installed by supply-chain partner Aire Valley Architectural Aluminium. Ideally suited to high-traffic applications, Senior’s robust SPW501 aluminium commercial doors provide safe and secure access to the retail and community buildings, with the slim sightlines afforded by Senior’s popular SF52 aluminium curtain wall system helping to maximise the use of daylighting.

In recognition of the scheme’s considerate and creative design, The Strand Hub won Rochdale Borough Council’s 2019 Rochdale Design Award.
