Leeds tower upgrade nears completion

One of Yorkshire’s tallest office buildings is nearing the end of its multimillion pound refurbishment, with the installation of its new lifts.

The elevator at Pinnacle Leeds is part of the final stage of the £6m modernisation. The lift contractors, Kone, expect to sign off on the work by the middle of next month.

It will bring an end to most of the two year project, with local asset manager Robert Firth saying that the old lifts, though thought to be the fastest in the city, were at risk of becoming unreliable.

Although this was one of the biggest jobs on the venture, there were other major works also taking place. For example, the air conditioning chillers were replaced and the ground floor was entirely refurbished.

There was also  office fit out  office fit out work to seven of the floors. This has created over 5,000 square foot of open plan office space, while the tenth floor has seen two suites created through the use of  office partitioning  office partitioning.

However, it is not the end of the project, with Mr Firth going on to explain:

“While the majority of the initial refurbishment is complete, we have many exciting developments in the pipeline, including the refurbishment of floors eight and 15 later this year, while a significant new leisure letting will be announced in the next few weeks.”

No details have been released about the leisure deal in regards to use by Pinnacle’s tenants, but a new scheme allowing occupants discounts for the building’s retailers has been introduced as part of the upgrade.
