First White Cloth Hall
The £2.5m scheme at the grade II* listed First White Cloth Hall, a former cloth market on Kirkgate in Leeds, has now been completed. This was a D&B scheme, working with Buttress Architects for the developer Rushbond. Works included restoration of the hall's demolished west wing to include an inner glazed atrium courtyard and a new shop front. The construction of an inner steel frame now provides structural strength for the building. This had to be co-ordinated, managed and constructed around the existing facade support and seamlessly blend the historic with the new.
