Case Study: No. 1 Aire Street, Leeds
Project Synopsis: Network Rail’s Grade 2 Listed Building refreshed with new EB24 steel windows
In 2014 landmark building No1 Aire Street underwent a dramatic transformation.
The Grade II listed, 1930s Art Deco property is in the south west corner of the Leeds City Centre Conservation Area. Significant consultation with Leeds City Council planning department and the owner Network Rail’s planners was carried out to ensure the proposals were historically compatible with the existing building. Almost a hundred original steel windows had to be replaced as sympathetically as possible but with a product which would bring improved thermal efficiency. Clement EB24 suite of bespoke steel windows was specified for the project offering high specification along with elegant, robust frame sections.
