Prestigious RICS Award for 6 Wellington Place in Leeds
This flagship development in the heart of Leeds City Centre has won the Commercial Property category at these prestigious awards from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.
RICS is the world's leading professional body for qualifications and standards in land, property, infrastructure and construction and the annual awards are held in high regard. The RICS Awards are run across a number of regional awards, the winners of which then go on to compete for a national award for their category at the RICS Awards Grand Final, this year due to take place on 14th October.
6 Wellington Place was short-listed at the RICS Awards Yorkshire and Humber alongside tough competition and was announced as the winner in its category on 13th May 2016. The judges recognised the scheme as a "stunning Grade A office development" and acknowledged the fact that the £16 million development was fully let within four months of completion as testament to the project team; MEPC, AECOM, CJCT Studios and Wates Construction.
Speedclad carried out the design, supply and installation of the natural stone rainscreen cladding on 6 Wellington Place, as well as composite panels and an aluminium plank system, working closely with Wates Construction. We went on to secure the integrated facade contract for the next building in the scheme, 5 Wellington Place.
