5 Wellington Place

5 Wellington Place

By undertaking the complete facade package on the latest addition to this prestigious business quarter in Leeds, Speedclad was able to provide best value and practice for key client, Wates Construction.

Following the successful completion of the cladding contracts on buildings 10 and 6 Wellington Place, Speedclad was able to have an early involvement in the development of 5 Wellington Place. Having established good working relationships, and a proven track record, with the client and supply chain teams, we collaborated to provide a total facade solution that drew on all the skills, knowledge and expertise across our business, supported by standardised and consistent operating procedures.

 Speedclad's package included the design, supply and installation of an ultra-lightweight limestone cladding system from Stone Panels inc., composite panels, aluminium parapet flashings and soffit panels, soffit SFS, curtain walling, windows, brise soleil, louvres and doors - including automatic curved sliding door and steel doors. We worked closely with our own supply chain throughout the project, identifying lessons learned in our previous Wellington Place experiences. As an example of this we liaised with BENCHMARK by Kingspan to develop a structural insulated spandrel panel for the curtain walling insulation that removes all cold-bridging issues and went on to manufacture these special panels in our own facility.
