Concord Street, Leeds
Concord Street, Leeds Concord Street is an exciting new build 9 storey apartment block in central Leeds. 35 apartments with a mix of 1 and 2-bed accommodation procured through modern, off-site construction via Frameclad.
A very challenging site has led the design team to look at minimising time and construction activities onsite and through a full BIM approach, the coordination of architecture, structures and Frameclad has allowed careful and detailed positioning options to be looked at.
The specialised floor system used provided a working platform to facilitate construction of further floors to continue Frameclad’s edge protection system ensured constant site safety throughout the build.

This uniquely shaped building designed by B&R Architects is on the site of the former Bellerby Theatre in Guildford. Main Contractor Bowmer & Kirkland were tasked with building a new Waitrose food store on the ground floor with 30 apartments and 18 affordable homes on the tapering floors above. Several of these enjoyed roof gardens which are sheltered by high parapet walls constructed from Frameclad SFS.
Frameclad manufactured all of the internal/external frames for these two interlinked block five-storey residential development. Floors were constructed from lattice joists and also balcony cassettes were supplied to sit inside a hot rolled frame. Access was limited and due to the busy site location deliveries had to be carefully coordinated and time slots hit.
