New Leeds College of Art building scheme profiled in ABC&D magazine

10 August 2017

Leeds College of Art - ISG

One of ISG’s first college projects procured under the new YORbuild2 public sector framework has been covered in the public sector publication, ABC&D Magazine.

The £14m extension of Leeds College of Art was the subject of a double-page spread, titled ‘£14m Leeds College of Art expansion scheme’, which focused on how ISG is constructing a circa 65,000 sq ft, five-storey extension that will connect to the existing Blenheim Walk campus building.

The steel frame structure provides extra capacity for the College and its accommodating art, design and performance facilities, as well as community spaces including a coffee shop and public exhibition gallery.

An enterprise centre will also be built within the new building to allow the College to engage with regional businesses, as well as the local and wider communities of Leeds.

ISG's regional managing director for UK Construction North & Scotland business, Andy McLinden, was quoted in the article.

“Leeds College of Art has ambitious plans for its future development and these new facilities will provide the infrastructure to support significant expansion at the Blenheim Walk campus, and promote greater engagement with the local community,” he said.

“The use of the YORbuild2 framework has proved instrumental in getting this complex project from concept to site quickly to maximise efficiencies and drive innovation in the build process.”
