Flexing to meet the challenges at The Majestic

Converting this Leeds city centre landmark requires care, expertise and engineering know-how.

In its latest incarnation, this Grade II listed building will be transformed to provide seven floors of prime Grade A Offices.

The former cinema and dancehall has been altered several times before and was partially destroyed by fire in 2014. With limited structural information to work with, a flexible approach to construction is essential.

Intelligent solutions

We developed an alternative foundation design which removed 120 piles, speeding up the programme.

A 9-tonne piling rig was lowered into the basement using a temporary works system designed by our in-house specialists.

The fa├žade retention scheme was adapted as the structural limitations of the existing building became clear.
