A Peterlee manufacturing company is expanding its portfolio nationally after being awarded a contract to re-develop a prestigious building in Leeds City Centre.
D&S Services was appointed as sub-contractor to play a key role in the development of New Merrion House.
The 170,000 sq ft office space is jointly owned by Town Centre Securities Plc and Leeds City Council as part of a partnership between public and private sectors, and will be the new home of the local authority.
Merrion House, which was originally constructed in 1973, is currently undergoing significant refurbishment in order for the council to return with all public facing services under one roof.
D&S Services, which is based on the South West Industrial Estate in Peterlee, was tasked to manufacture pre-fabricated aluminium external frames complete with brick cladding and grout.
Mark Kelly, Director at D&S Services said: “The re-development of New Merrion House has been a major project for us, and certainly one of our most high profile.
“As a growing company, being selected to manufacture the pre-fabricated aluminium external frames complete with brick cladding and grout is testament to the high quality services we provide and our ability to secure lucrative contracts nationally.”
Corium, a unique and innovative brick cladding system, was used by D&S Services to give a new modern finish to the building.
The whole process was pre-fabricated and allowed manufacturing to take place at D&S Services’ factory which significantly reduced on-site construction time.
