Project Award: Leeds City College
Key client, Wates Construction, has awarded Speedclad the rainscreen cladding package on the new Quarry Hill Campus development for Leeds City College.
The £57million development is located at Eastgate in the heart of Leeds City Centre, close to the West Yorkshire Playhouse and will provide a 15,500m2 learning environment to house the Public Services, Creative & Digital Arts and Health & Social Sciences departments. The 9-storey scheme, designed by Ellis Williams Architects, will take an innovative approach to providing an education experience and include dance and rehearsal spaces, TV studio and editing suites, music recording facilities, lecture theatres, science laboratories and childcare training facilities.
Speedclad's contract comprises the design, supply and installation of the terracotta rainscreen cladding to the facade and our teams are working in close collaboration with both client and supply chain to meet the challenges of this compact city centre site.
