Bradford tower blocks refitted in £20 million scheme

  • Comment
Halliday Clark has been given the £20 million task of revamping 13 tower blocks in Bradford city centre.

Varying from eight to 15 storeys, each building will be re-clad, refurbished and given a roof-mounted wind turbine.

The scheme for the Bradford West City Community Housing Trust focuses on a string of aging 1960s residential buildings along Manchester Road and Otley Road.

Following the transfer of the local authority's housing stock, all the flats need to be brought up to a 'decent homes' standard with new kitchens, bathrooms and services.

Work has already started on parts of the project, which will also feature a 'living street' - a wide pedestrian boulevard providing access to the city from the southern suburbs.

The Bradford-based practice wants to give all the blocks an individual identity with 'artwork' gates and three-blade roof structures.

It is hoped the all the construction work will be completed within two years.
