Case study story


Our specialist glazing team were deployed to carry out the removal and installation of a new large double glazed unit on the fifth floor of Livingston House at the Clarence Dock development in Leeds.

Livingston House offers stunning views over the Royal Armouries Museum, Clarence Dock and the River Aire.

The high specification Grade A offices currently house over 500 employees from the Asset Delivery Department of Yorkshire Water.

Works carried out:

Due to the size and weight of the glazing unit, our glazing team utilised a mobile mini crane, from our suppliers The GGR Group

The Glassboy GK550 with powerful lifting capacity of 500kg ensured the project was completed with relativeease, due to the hydraulic lifting arms and the electric powered vacuum lift.Rope access techniques were used to release the external capping detail and guide the unit into position
