G&H Building Services starts its fifth phase of Leeds City College’s regeneration scheme

G&H Building Services has secured a £2 million contract to provide full mechanical and electrical design and build works for the latest stage of Leeds City College’s regeneration.

Appointed by Interserve, the international support services and construction group, who are main contractors on the project, G&H Building Services will install services to Building 1A on the former Alf Cooke Printworks site – one of the most recognisable industrial landmarks in Leeds.

It is the fifth phase G&H Building Services has delivered as part of the college’s overhaul of the Printworks Campus and follows on from its works carried out on Buildings 1B, 3, 4 and 5.

Services to be designed and installed in Building 1A will include air conditioning, heating and domestic water services, a heat recovery unit centralised plant with ventilation systems, a Building Energy Management System, small power and data, fire alarms, lighting and emergency lighting.

Senior Contracts Manager at G&H Building Services, Paul Cuss, said: “Our continuing work for Leeds City College demonstrates our ability to deliver schemes that exceed expectations.

“This latest phase is the biggest we have carried out as part of the college’s regeneration and sees us converting a derelict building into a modern educational facility.

“Building 1A will be used to teach business, applied IT and computing. The building will also have a spa and restaurant.

“As is the case with all the schemes we design, the mechanical and electrical services have the end users at the forefront of our work.

“This applies to services we are providing to the teaching areas, staff offices, kitchen and canteens to ensure we create the best environment possible for the college.”

Interserve Contracts Manager, Andrew Jones, said: “We are pleased to welcome G&H Building Services to our supply chain and look forward to working with them and the expertise and knowledge that they will bring to the refurbishment of this iconic Grade II listed building.”

Printworks 1A has received an £8.9 million investment through the 
Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Growth Deal – a £1 billion package of government investment to accelerate growth and create jobs across Leeds City Region.
