Q&A on G&H Building Services’ key role delivering the Majestic, Leeds for Rushbond Group

G&H Building Services is playing a key role transforming Leeds’ iconic Majestic building into a contemporary new office development.

The Majestic building on City Square opposite the railway station is being built for Rushbond Group by contractor Sir Robert McAlpine.

Over 66,000 sq ft of Grade A flexible and contemporary workspaces with a triple height entrance reception and roof terraces are being developed.

Originally built as a cinema in 1922, the Majestic became a ballroom in the 1950s and a bingo club in the late 1960s.

It was listed in 1993 and later that decade opened as the Majestyk nightclub before being used as a concert venue until 2008.

Rushbond acquired it in 2010 and the new development is due to open in 2020.

G&HSenior Contracts Manager at G&H Building Services, David Wilson, explains in a Q&A with Rushbond Group the M&E approach, forthcoming work and the importance of apprentices.

Rushbond: What has your time on the project been like so far?

David Wilson: The project has been a very exciting journey for us – it’s such a high profile building with a lot of history in Leeds.   

It is quite complex from a mechanical and electrical perspective because of the retained existing façade but we have great experience managing projects like this and are really looking forward to seeing the finished result.
