Contract Period: Commenced April 2018
Contract Type: Bespoke

Background

Kirkstall Road is a new development of PRS (Private Rental Sector) acccomodation incorporarting stylish 1,2 & 3 bedroom apartments close to Leeds City Centre. This area of the city is rapidly changing and considering it’s close proximity to the city centre and the whole range of public transport options on offer, it is becoming a very popular area of Leeds.

Howard Civil Engineering have been employed by new client Hollycroft Construction to deliver the RC Frame

Due to obstructions in the ground, the piling and groundworks (undertaken by others) took longer than initially envisaged and we worked with our client to establish a delivery that maintained the main contract programme
Our openness and flexibility around programme and delivery was a key factor with our client deciding to progress with HCE.

Due to the site constraints, we have employed a ‘just in time’ delivery strategy to best manage the limited space onsite and overcome the challenging site logistics. Furthermore, with our head office and plant yard just over 3 miles away we were able to use this valuable off site space for prefabricating steel and constructing formwork/falsework.

  • 10 Storey building with a floor plate of 1200m2
  • 2nr cores constructed utilising a ‘Slipform’ construction method
  • Over 4000m3 of structural concrete and approx. 750tn of rebar
