Sector: Residential Completion date: August 2023

In Leeds, Robertson is bringing the former Leonardo Printworks & Thoresby buildings back to life. The project combines new build with refurbishment of Grade II Listed buildings. It will provide 473 student bedrooms across a mix of studio and student cluster accommodation, attracting undergraduates, postgraduates and young professionals to the city centre.

Refurbishing existing buildings, using minimal structural alteration, substantially reduces the embodied carbon of the development. Operational costs and ongoing carbon emissions are also minimised by connecting to the city council’s district heating system, along with a thermally efficient building fabric and rooftop photovoltaic panels.
