Architectural mesh for Leeds University Multi-Storey Car Park

Architectural mesh for Leeds University Multi-Storey Car Park

Leeds University’s innovative multi-storey car park features Kirkstone perforated metal panels from The Locker Group installed as a unique cladding design, with beautiful eye-catching night-time illumination.

The Locker team was integral to the success of the project, from start to finish. Locker Group's designers worked in partnership with architect Carey Jones (CJCT) to devise the optimum cladding material. All options were considered, including fabric tension mesh, until the final perforated metal panel design was created.

For Wates Group (Shepherd Construction) Locker delivered structural engineering, design, fabrication and installation of the Kirkstone perforated panels, plus a green wall tensioned mesh façade to the lower floors along with all supporting mullions, steelwork and bracketry. The innovative structure of the car park façade along with the high quality of the end product has resulted in a shortlisting for a RICS award under the ‘Design through Innovation’ category.
