K2 Aluminium Systems, an installer of the Glazerite UK Group recently completed a redevelopment project in Halifax for Leeds Beckett University Business Centre.

The project consisted of 125 windows as part of the larger multi-million pound transformation programme on the old weaving mill located on Horton Street in Halifax.

The architectural aluminium specialist installed VEKA's M70 frames in grey, which were manufactured by Glazerite's Bolton Division. Sales Manager for Glazerite, Pete Smith explains: 

"The Matrix 70 system, characterised by its 5 chambers and clean chamfered lines, provides a modern, energy efficient solution that looks equally at home when used for new build projects or refurbishment projects such as this one. The required styles looked complex in design but were easy to manufacture thanks to our state-of-the-art multi-headed welding and cleaning facilities. 

K2 needed a quick turnaround to fulfil their tight fitting schedule, installed a floor per week to meet the completion deadline, and our nationwide coverage meant we could deliver as and when required.

The frames themselves were matched to the original timber window style to keep in touch with its period facade, and this project is another great example of thermally efficient, modern materials being used to allow a historic building to live on for many years to come."

As part of its partnership with Calderdale Council, Leeds Beckett University is launching a new initiative to drive growth amongst early-stage and growing businesses. The University Business Centre will be based at Piece Mill in Halifax next to historic Piece Hall and will re-open later this year.

Piece Mill is an impressive converted mill providing open plan, affordable office and meeting space plus a range of business support in the centre of Halifax. The centre is part of a network of Leeds Beckett University Business Centres that have been operating for more than 15 years.

Over 200 businesses across the region are currently located in Leeds Beckett's private, shared and co-working spaces which to date have supported over 800 businesses to accelerate their growth.

Support from Leeds Beckett has been proven to almost double business sustainability, with a 95% business survival rate in the first year of trading. To find out more please visit www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/halifaxbusinesscentre.
