February 2015 – New Leeds Pentecostal Church Rises From The Ground

Picture 2

In the grounds of the former Leeds High School, building works commenced on Leeds Pentecostal  Church in January 2015, the 2600m2 building will house a church with approximately 1000 seats and a community facility.

Due to the topography of the site a large basement has been created to form the ground floor of the church  which has required a 300m3 in-situ RC retainer wall with water proofing and gas retardant properties. Planning constraints require that all vehicular areas are required to be drained in such a way that the surface water does not dis-charge onto the highway, therefore a large underground attenuation tank and petrol inter-ceptor had to be incorporated into the scheme.
