Work begins on prestigious project

Work has now started on the prestigious Leeds City University, Parkinson Building Steps and Lift Shaft project. Replacement steps are currently being stripped out ready for new to be installed over the coming weeks.
The project is set to take 26 weeks to complete, mainly due to its delicate locality next to the main entrance of the Parkinson Building, as well as working around site users and students.
Phase 2 includes lift shaft, walling and 2nd phase step replacement.
This iconic Grade II listed building was started in 1939, but work was halted because of WW2, the building was finally completed in 1951. It is named after Frank Parkinson a former student of engineering at the University who in 1938 generously donated £200k.
