Structural alterations to former Lloyds HQ in Leeds

AOC Services: News

AOC Demolition were assigned by Yorkshire construction company Harris CM to carry out structural alterations to the former regional head office of Lloyd’s Bank on Park Row in Leeds. Throughout the duration of the 6-month project, the team had to work around the restrictions of the bustling city centre to remove the external walls of the building following the installation of a brand-new steel structure. We also carried out the careful removal of the granite cladding, which was set aside for reuse.

Built in the early 1970s, the 12-storey building is at the intersection of Bond Street, close to Leeds railway station and Trinity Leeds shopping centre, a busy area to say the least. In addition to the active public around the area, there were also various traders onsite whilst our works were being carried out; something we made sure to be mindful of and work carefully around.

Now our structural alterations are complete, it makes way for a comprehensive refurbishment of the building, which will create 553sqm of additional floorspace and two new entrances. The new-found space will be converted into Grade A standard office accommodation on the upper floors, and the ground floor will become a restaurant.
