Kingston Joinery plays key roles on multi-million pound new school and motorway services developments

Tuesday, April 14th, 2020

Kingston Joinery have been delighted to play a major part in the construction of the multi-million pound new Dixons Trinity School in Leeds.

Teams were on site for months working for Willmott Dixon, contracted to carry out all internal joinery work as well as stunning external fin cladding on the £21.6m project.

The Leeds school will educate close to 1,000 primary and secondary school students when it is fully open, boasting fantastic modern facilities.

Our teams also helped another significant development in Leeds push towards completion in recent months.

We were again contracted to provide a full joinery package at the stunning new £60m Skelton Lakes Services development, first starting on site late last year, working for second phase contractors, Morgan Sindall Construction.

Our teams have completed internal joinery on the services and food court, hotel, business centre, leisure facilities and retail areas ahead of a full opening, which was scheduled for later this spring.

Given the current situation and recent government guidelines, the service station has currently opened with reduced services.

Paul Warnecke, Contracts Manager at Kingston Joinery, said: “These are both excellent developments which we have been proud to be part of at Kingston Joinery.

“It has been really rewarding to be part of a project providing a first-class educational facility at Dixons Trinity School in Leeds.

“The Skelton Lake Services are stunning both from the exterior and internally. It has been an excellent project to be a part of and really sets a new standard for motorway services as wider developments.

“As can be seen from the images, the site is far from the norm when it comes to motorway services with facilities of the highest standard.

“As a business we are proud to have a track record of being chosen as the joinery specialists on contracts where that extra level of quality is required, and that is something our teams have brought with regards to the joinery in the main services area and the new 100-bed Ramada hotel in particular.

“The whole site has been designed to provide an innovative, environmentally sustainable and comfortable environment and that can now be seen.”

Located at junction 45 of the M1 J45 and built by the Extra MSA Group, the services will create around 300 new jobs.

It will have a ‘Living Green Roof’, comprised of wildflowers and greenery, and sit adjacent to Skelton Lake with walking routes, cycle paths and nature trails nearby, as well as an RSPB visitor centre and viewing deck.
