Client: Galliford Try Partnership
Architect: Dransfield Owens de Silver
Fabricator: Magnum Aluminium Products Ltd
Type of works: supply of Comar 5, 6 and 7 aluminium profiles for extension to existing building.
Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems supplied aluminium profiles for the new extension to Enfield Primary Care Centre.
Magnum Aluminium Products Ltd, a Comar approved fabricator, installed the futuristic glazed screens, entrances and windows.
The three storey vibrant-looking façade features Comar 6 stick-build curtain walling. On-site construction allowed accurate and precise assembly of this complex envelope. The façade consists of faceted elevations incorporating panes of toughened glass of different dimensions. The transoms and mullions feature an assortment of cover caps, bringing extra depth and dynamism to the atriums glazed skin.
The main entrance needed to comply with DDA regulations and was created with Comar 7 automatic sliding doors hung direct onto Comar 6. A separate emergency exit incorporates Comar 7 butt-hinged doors with Axim transom closers and crash bar panic exit device.
The stone-clad elevations of the Centres extension used Comar 5 thermally-broken top-hung windows. All systems were polyester powder coated to standard Grey RAL colour.
Magnum worked on the Care Centre project from the outset and advised the architects on the systems and wind loading.
Time was a constraint and, due to close liaison throughout the design phase, the whole extensive installation of the fenestration took just over 2 months to complete.
