Project Overview

The University of Leeds hired Western to complete the design and build of a two storey office space on their campus to house the Facilities Directorate for the University. Established in 1904, the University currently has 33,500 students enrolled at it, making it one of the biggest in the UK.

A two storey modular steel frame design was used for this project, with 48 modules constructed on site at our Coalisland base and transported to the site at the University.

Construction Process

The work carried out at the University of Leeds was modular in design and saw the installation for 48 modular units at the site.

The bespoke finish to the building includes a red brick and cedar cladding to the exterior of the building, a stunning, unique finish. Inside the building there is office space for the Operations Office, Estates, Planning and Information office and the Engineering & Energy office as well as Human Resources.

The building was a modular design and included innovative features to improve and enhance acoustics, provide enhanced natural ventilation and heat retention capability and performance. All internal fixtures and fittings were manufactured and supplied by Western.

These included:
• Door Sets
• Fitted toilets
• Glazed screens
• Full M&E work
• Aluminium A-rated windows.
