In May 2015 Henry Boot Construction were awarded the contract to build a flagship Extra Care housing scheme in Yeadon for Leeds City Council through the YORbuild Framework.
The 45 self-contained apartments will be the first council owned and managed, extra care scheme in the city. The development comprises of 18 one bedroom, 27 two bedroom apartments and a range of vibrant communal and outdoor spaces.
The new scheme forms part of the council’s ambitious plans to provide accommodation to suit people’s needs for now and the future.
The new curved building has a concrete substructure, concrete columns, core walls and suspended post tensioned concrete floors. The stability of the structure is derived through the three cores (stairs, lfts and service cores) of the building which are formed with 250mm thick in-situ reinforced concrete walls. The building also incorporates concrete retaining walls to accomodate the changes in level across the site.
