6 Wellington Place
A consistent approach was the key to the success of this project, to ensure that quality standards were maintained on the latest addition to this prestigious city centre business quarter in Leeds.
Following the successful completion of 10 Wellington Place, Speedclad was given the opportunity to negotiate the contract on 6 Wellington Place with main contractors, Wates Construction, and developer MEPC. With an ambitious and high-profile 'master plan' in place for the Wellington Place scheme, it was essential that all design, performance, aesthetics and delivery targets continued to be achieved in the same manner.
Speedclad completed the facade design in close liaison with other interested parties and installed an ultra-lightweight limestone cladding system from Stone Panels inc. over the curtain walling to provide a high-performance facade. In addition to the stone cladding Speedclad also installed 1600 lm of fully formed stone heads and jambs, plus other facade systems including Benchmark Render system, aluminium soffit cladding, Kingspan 1000MR and Scheuco glazed screens. 6 Wellington Place went on to win the Commercial Property category of the RICS Awards 2016 Yorkshire and Humber, and Speedclad went on to secure the integrated facade contract on the next development; 5 Wellington Place.
