Project Award: Citispace Façade Remediation

Speedclad has been appointed as Principal Contractor for the remediation of the façade at Citispace, Leeds, under the Building Safety Fund (BSF) scheme.

Citispace Services Ltd has awarded Speedclad the contract for the replacement of all non-compliant elements of the façade on this 9-storey apartment building in Leeds city centre. Speedclad will act as Principal Contractor for the works, coordinating all relevant activities including the façade remediation, traffic management, road closures and temporary works.

Speedclad will remove 900m2 of glazing, which currently has a PIR insulation bonded to the rear, and replace with Speedpanel A2 Glass® spandrel panels which are tested and certified to an A2-s1,d0 classification in accordance with EN 13501-1:2018. Speedclad will also replace all other non-compliant elements on the façade, install fire barriers and replace wooden balcony flooring with metal decking.
