Kirkstall Road

Client: Hollycroft Construction

Value: £2.1m
Location: Leeds
Contract Period:
Contract Type: Bespoke

Background

Kirkstall Road is a development of PRS (Private Rental Sector) acccomodation incorporarting stylish 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments close to Leeds city centre. This area of the city is rapidly changing and considering its close proximity to the centre, it is becoming a very popular area of Leeds.

Howard Civil Engineering were employed by our new client, Hollycroft Construction to deliver the reinforced concrete 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 Howard Civil Engineering.

Due to the site constraints, we 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 three miles away we were able to use this valuable off site space for prefabricating steel and constructing formwork/falsework.

Scope of works

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