The combination of slim profile aluminium curtain walling and high-performance aluminium commercial doors from Senior Architectural Systems has played a key role in the major refurbishment of Doncaster’s historic Grade II listed Wool Market.
As a South Yorkshire based company, with its head office just down the road in Denaby, Senior was the ideal choice to supply the fenestration systems for one of Doncaster’s most iconic buildings. Redesigned by leading architects Bond Bryan, the Wool Market is one of the ten separate markets located in the town’s Market Place and has been transformed into a modern leisure destination, providing a hub for local traders as well as drink and food outlets.
A key feature of the new Wool Market are its stunning glazed façades which have been created through the use of Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain wall system. Combining enhanced thermal performance and offering exceptionally slim sightlines, Senior’s SF52 curtain walling system has been integrated with Senior’s high performance SPW 501 aluminium commercial doors. Further access has been provided through the use of Senior’s ALI FOLD aluminium folding sliding doors. The attractive fenestration package allows natural light to flood the market to create a warm and welcoming interior, with the flexible door arrangement extending the useable space by seamlessly linking with the outdoor seating area.
The redevelopment of Doncaster’s Wool Market has also utilised the talents of another local company, with South Yorkshire based specialist contractor Danum Windows Ltd fabricating and installing Senior’s aluminium fenestration package for main contractor Willmott Dixon and end-client Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council.
