Steel frame up at Leeds Central Square

Central150903More than 1,900t of structural steelwork has been erected by Elland Steel Structures, working on behalf of main contractor Wates Construction, to complete the frame of the 12-storey Central Square project in Leeds city centre.

Situated in a prime location, close to Leeds railway station, Central Square is a 20,000m² mixed-use scheme, which will provide Grade A offices as well as retail and leisure facilities.

Offices will be accommodated on the ten uppermost floors of the development and will have floorplates of 2,300m², which are said to be the largest in the city.

Flexibility is a key factor in the scheme as all of the office spaces can be sub-divided providing the future occupiers with highly efficient floor space.

A Sky Garden will be located on the ninth floor, providing entertainment opportunities and views across the city.

The reception for the offices is positioned at first floor level, accessed via a feature escalator, with the upper floors being accessed by a number of lifts including two glass clad wall climber lifts.

Rated at BREEAM ‘Excellent’ working towards “Outstanding”, the scheme also features a dramatic atrium space incorporating a winter garden and restaurant/cafe units.
