Parkinson Building, Leeds University

Jun 13, 2016 | Architects & Commercial, Education, Heritage & Listed Buildings |

“The Granada team have fully achieved their part of the brief, providing a unique solution to the thermal issues at Leeds. Their secondary glazing is non-intrusive, and has helped to discreetly renovate this Grade II listed building.” David Oldroyd, Project Manager, University of Leeds

Leeds University is one of six original “red brick” universities. The introduction of secondary glazing helped transform energy ratings at one its most iconic buildings from “F” to “C”.

A suite of horizontal sliding windows were installed to retain the original character of this Grade II listed building, whilst providing full access to the primary windows for natural ventilation. The result has been a huge carbon footprint reduction. Classrooms provide a quieter, warmer working environment, whilst operating costs have been significantly reduced.
