Opal 1


PRINCIPAL CONTRACTOR: Ocon Construction Ltd CLIENT: Opal Developments VALUE: £1,000,000.00
WORKS PACKAGE: Light Weight Structural Framing System

This new 13 storey, 981 bedroom student accommodation with leisure club, swimming pool and retail unit is situated within Leeds city centre.

The massive student accommodation scheme is a striking thirteen storey post tensioned concrete structure, with stimulating modern treatments to the façade including distinctive, multi coloured, powder coated aluminium ‘fins’ which deliberately interrupt the mass of the structure. This state of the art student residence has all en-suite accommodation, with a choice of standard, deluxe or studio rooms.

CLM were successful to win the subcontract package from main contractor, Ocon Construction. The works package included the light weight structural framing system for this massive development.

The light coloured facing brickwork gives contrast to elements of cedar boarding and zinc replica cladding, whilst the lower portions of the elevations have dark slate and stone treatments.

The building’s continuous four sided structure is perforated by huge openings giving light and access to the landscaped central courtyard, which provides a pleasant haven for students.
