Award winning restoration for historic clock tower

We successfully overcame a number of challenges and met the requirements of multiple stakeholders to complete this complex restoration project on the historically important Grade II Listed Oakwood Clock in Leeds.

 

The £290,000 project fully restored this important local landmark which had become dilapidated. The internal structural frame had corroded, the cast iron clock tower panels were rusting and the timber colonnade structure was decaying and unsightly.

 

The restoration involved the removal of the timber colonnade and plain clay tiled roof and replacement with a powder coated steel ‘Victorian Style’ colonnade with a lead effect steel roof. The clock tower required careful dismantling and shipping to a specialist clock restorer for repair before being reassembled once the restoration work was complete. Architectural lighting was also installed to illuminate the features of the tower during the evenings.
