Ground investigations expert Lithos Consultancy chose a brownfield site to redevelop for its new headquarters. We provided a complete build and fit-out service working with a sympathetic mix of materials including a steel frame with cedar wood cladding, topped with a copper canopy and an aluminium standing seam roof. Architect: Wildblood Macdonald
This commercial property development involved the transformation of a partially-cleared brownfield site which formed part of the old Larkfield Mill, built in 1825 by the Thompson family and used for the manufacturing and dyeing of woollen cloth. Located just off the busy JTC roundabout in Rawdon, Leeds, this was an exciting and challenging project to develop a 3,200 sqm site and build an architecturally interesting 3-storey commercial block with piled foundations and a monopitch roof. Access roads and a car park were also constructed. Architect: John Wharton
This £2.5 million redevelopment of a 10-acre brownfield site created a new home for the award-winning Yorkshire landscaping company as well as constructing two buildings comprising seven serviced offices for rental. A well-planned development that maximises the use of space, the project involved demolishing existing buildings and constructing seven new building. These included a head-office for Green-tech, seven serviced offices for rental plus warehouses and retail units to showcase – and store – the company’s 6,000 plus product range. The Rabbit Hill site uses mixed styles and materials from single skin and cedar cladding to traditional masonry. As part of the project, we built an environmentally-friendly soakaway system that included drainage ponds. Architect: Lawrence Hannah Architects.
A complex phased development to extend the floor space of the existing factory, increase productivity and value – without interrupting operations. Temporary office accommodation was installed and Phase one of the factory built and handed over to the client. The existing premises were demolished and Phase two of the factory was built with new offices. Finally, a temporary factory wall between Phases one and two was removed so increased production could begin. Architect: Bowman Riley
This was a phased build that had to be carefully planned so operations in the main factory weren’t interrupted. In Phase One, part of the existing factory was demolished and a new 243-car park and roadway was created. A 42,000 sqft extension was built on the demolition site and former car park, with a service yard and 3,600 sqft ancillary building for staff. Architect: JB Birch
