Project: Leeds Playhouse

Client: Turner & Townsend

Value: £12.7m

We were appointed by Turner & Townsend to provide Quality Site Inspections for the refurbishment of the award-winning Leeds Playhouse.

The exterior works involved re-orientation of the theatre towards the city centre by creating a new glass extension and high impact entrance at street level on St. Peter’s Street. The interior of the building has been refurbished in the front of the house areas, creation of a new performance and rehearsal space under the foyer area, reconfigured offices, and improvement to access, overall improving the overall energy efficiency of the building.

Project: Leeds Skelton Lake Services

Client: Mascot Management

Leeds Skelton Lake Services is the latest addition to the M1, located just two miles east of Leeds at junction 45. We were appointed by Mascot Management, initially to provide quality inspections for the installation of a unique green curved roof on a kempar water proofing system, however this soon developed to us providing Clerk of Works services across all aspects of the project.

The service station will provide all the essential needs for a rest stop, including restroom and shower areas, moderate parking, a modular hotel, retail outlets, restaurants and cafés, along with on-the-go food and drink.

Project: Tooting Bec Lido

Client: David Gibson Architects

Value: £900k

The Tooting Bec Lido Pavilion is the result of an initiative by the South London Swimming Club to improve the facilities at Tooting Bec Lido for their members, to provide proper accommodation for the staff who run the pool, and to widen the opportunities for other sporting, social and community activities to be associated with the Lido.

We provided Clerks of Works services on behalf of David Gibson Architects. The new building consists of a hall of just over 100 square meters and an annex to the west which provides twin entrances from the pool and the Common, accommodation for Lido staff, a servery, changing rooms and toilets which serve the hall.
