“The first phase of works is to strip down the pre-cast panels leaving the concrete frame. This is a controlled de-construction rather than a demolition and it will take two tower cranes to achieve it.
“Then we will re-clad the building into a fully glazed and curtain walled structure. There are several complex aspects to the works, both the structural works and the M&E require particular expertise and experience. BAM’s specialist services engineering business will help us deliver what will be a striking transformation. This is going to be a very visible building as you enter the city of Leeds from the north.”
