Case Study: The Majestic, Leeds City Centre
Project Synopsis: The Majestic’s stunning façade restored by Clement windows
“The design objectives were to replicate the original windows. This was achieved to the satisfaction of the client, the architect and the planners. Clement succeeded in quality and programme. We have learnt that some companies can achieve what they promise!” - Peter Martin, Site Manager, Quarmby Construction
Opposite the railway station in Leeds City Square is the Majestic. An iconic building, Grade II listed, for many years it has been derelict. Developers Rushbond plc have acquired the building to create prime leisure accommodation and also a feature roof top external trading area.
The works included the reinstatement of all of the original windows on the first and second floors for which Clement W20 was chosen. Offering slim, elegant sight lines and the ability to create stunning shapes, replicating the original fenestration it was the right choice for this project.
All the new handmade windows feature beautiful detailing using Fenestra joint T bars. The windows include a series of curved heads and bull’s eyes, adding to the elegant look of the façade.
