Pipework prefabrication smooths city-centre project in Leeds

Gemma Martland, a mechanical apprentice with SES, completes some final inspection checks before the installation of modular pipework systems at Bridgewater Place in central Leeds. Time savings of around 50% are being attributed to the extensive use of offsite prefabrication systems for this £11.6 million project. Modules are delivered at weekends due to the restricted access and tight storage conditions at this city-centre development. Peter Lewis, northern regional director, explains, ‘Benefits of this method of installation include the reduction of labour costs, less waste on site, benefits to the programme and, most importantly, a reduction in safety risks.’ Bridgewater Place is a mixed-use development offering office and residential accommodation in two blocks linked by a 10-storey glass atrium.
