Project Award: 3 Wellington Place, Leeds
Having successfully completed facade packages on no's 5, 6 and 10 Wellington Place in Leeds, this latest project award represents on-going repeat business for Speedclad with key client, Wates Construction.
Speedclad completed the natural stone rainscreen cladding facade on 10 Wellington Place in 2014 and this was quickly followed with the award of the cladding contract for 6 Wellington Place. We received excellent feedback from our client for our performance at this prestigious development, which can be read on our Testimonials page, and continued on to secure the full integrated facade of cladding and curtain walling on 5 Wellington Place. Showing consistent delivery of a quality product and service, Speedclad has now secured the c. £4 million facade contract for this latest addition; 3 Wellington Place.
Our contract on 3 Wellington Place includes Lithodecor, a lightweight natural stone rainscreen system provided through Alsecco UK, curtain walling, louvres and external doors to ground and roof levels, including the automatic circle door to the main entrance, as well as all associated items. Speedclad worked closely with Wates Construction throughout the pre-construction phase, channelling our experience and knowledge into the design and selection of materials, including visiting the Alsecco factory in Germany to review facilities and processes and build collaborative relationships.
3 Wellington Place will occupy a high-profile setting at the junction of Wellington Street and Northern Street in Leeds city centre and will form the principal north-eastern gateway into Wellington Place. The 6-storey building will provide 111,000 sq ft of Grade A office space with an emphasis on style and versatility and impressive sustainability credentials.
