Nov 2020 Head of Leeds City Council Conservation team visits First White Cloth Hall, Kirkgate, Leeds
Phil Ward, Head of Conservation at Leeds City Council attended site on 20th November 2020 to view the works and lay bricks to the historic wall at the east of the building. The restored external shell houses an inner steel framed structure and, in addition, an inner glazed atrium courtyard with a new shop front. Propping has recently been removed from the east building courtyard wall and the cupola has been fitted.
The skills of HH Smith’s specialist tradesmen, all of whom have undertaken many heritage projects previously, have been vital throughout this £2.5m project.
