Allied Glazing Systems ‘on track’ for Network Rail project in Leeds

18th Jun 2020 | Posted In Project updates

Allied Glazing Systems has been awarded the contract by Buckingham Group Contracting to install windows, doors and curtain walling to the Holbeck Maintenance Depot unit in Leeds for Network Rail. Up until 1985 the unit was used to service steam locomotives and to store machinery but has since been used as a storage facility and office space for rail workers.

Designed by Waldeck Consulting, the new two-storey office and storage building at the existing Maintenance Delivery Unit in Leeds will provide a more updated facility for Network Rail operational staff, along with increasing the capacity of the Holbeck Site. The new space will include office and mess areas, showers, locker rooms, plant room, meeting rooms, break out space, control rooms, walkways and storage facilities.

The team at Waldeck Consulting has also incorporated the construction of a mezzanine floor in the designs for the existing engine shed, as well as subdivision of the existing space along with total refurbishment to enhance the efficiency of the unit.

Allied Glazing Systems has manufactured, supplied and installed a full range of architectural glazing systems for commercial properties for more than 40 years and provides customers with a full design and management service as a project partner. The expert team has specified the use of Senior Architectural Systems windows, 600e commercial doors and SF52 curtain walling which have been chosen for their Aesthetics, cost competitiveness against other systems and thermal properties.

Phil Goy, Director at Allied Glazing SystemsWe’re really excited to be part of this project for Network Rail and can’t wait to see the unit once all work is completed. Renovating historic buildings alongside new modular designs will create a fully fit-for purpose space. The innovative systems selected from Senior Architectural Systems are of the highest quality and are also a sustainable choice.”
