Project Type:     Commercial Extension
Architect:           Bauman Lyons Architects
Location:            Central Leeds
Contract Value: Circa £2m

Dobson Construction are the principle contractor creating a new rooftop extension to the Design Innovation Centre, which will provide new office accommodation.

The extension is being constructed of lightweight steel and composite cladding panels.

There are many logistical issues that Dobson’s are having to deal with on this project. Not only are deliveries and site storage very limited but the building beneath is fully occupied. Our works also include refurbishing the existing ‘pod’ structures which project out from the existing building, directly over the river Aire.

Working with existing buildings is always slightly more challenging than pure new build so Dobson Construction are fortunate to be working with very competent and responsive architect’s on this project – Bauman Lyons Architects.

The contract started in late January 2008 and completed in December 2008, on time and on budget!
