With award-winning architects BDP looking to showcase the very best of British design and product manufacturing in the creation of the stunning UK Pavilion at Milan Expo 2015, windows from Senior Architectural System’s innovative Hybrid range have proven to be the perfect fit.

The leading fenestration designer has supplied 15 Hybrid Series 1 timber composite tilt turn window, specified with black powder coated aluminium externally for durability and low maintenance and featuring spruce engineered timber internally for a natural look and feel.

The Hybrid frames were fabricated by Hepworth Framework and installed by main contractor Stage One, with the double glazed units with solar control glass supplied by Senior’s dedicated glazed unit manufacturing facility in Scarborough.

Mike Davenport Senior Architectural Technician at BDP said “We wanted to use timber composite windows to give the building a sustainable, softer feel and were looking for a UK based manufacturer to showcase UK products and systems. We considered a number of UK systems and Senior’s Hybrid window system was by far the best option, offering local UK manufacture and being the only one with the quality we needed. In fact the quality is equivalent to that of the Scandinavian systems we have used in the past and we will definitely use Senior’s Hybrid systems again in the future.”

The UK Pavilion features a fruit orchard and natural wildflower meadow leading to 14m³ aluminium lattice hive sphere based on the design of a honeycomb which has been created by sculptor Wolfgang Buttress. Overlooking and perfectly complementing this striking focal point are Senior’s Hybrid windows which have been installed in the conference and VIP suite, offices and kitchen area and will be electrically operated to allow automatic mechanical ventilation.

Mark Wadsworth Managing Director at Senior said “We are extremely proud that our Hybrid windows have been chosen for such a prestigious project. With over 20 million visitors expected at Milan Expo 2015, it will allow us to showcase our sustainable timber composite Hybrid range and the best of British manufacturing on a global stage.”

Milan Expo 2015 is a non-commercial Universal Exposition and will run from May to October 2015 under the theme ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’. It aims to highlight one of the most pressing challenges of our time – how to feed and sustain an expected rise in the world’s population to 9 billion by 2050.
