Leeds East Academy
The new E-ACT Leeds East Academy will provide an outstanding learning environment for students, staff and the wider community.
Billington Structures provided the structural steel to build a two storey beam and column braced frame with composite metal decked floors. Billington faced many challenges throughout the erection process, not least the compact site conditions and proximity to the existing school boundary. Access to site was limited and the steel had to be erected to full height with no opportunity to go back once complete. Billington overcame the challenges and tight erection schedule, completing the erection in a six week turnaround, which included secondary steelwork. Neither company had worked together before, however both Billington Structures and Interserve teams worked closely to complete the erection successfully and within the time frame. The scheme of works also included the supply and installation of pre-cast concrete staircases as well as the supply of perimeter edge protection.
