Sir Robert McAlpine secured the Mustard Wharf build-to-rent housing project in Leeds. The 250-home project in the Holbeck area of the city is being developed by Legal & General, which bought the site next to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal from U+I last year.
Its immediate proximity to the River Aire meant that extra protection was required to obviate the risks associated with flooding. FIS supported the design team including Sir Robert McAlpine, Enjoy Design and Moortown Group to ensure that an effective design was produced.
The sub-structure was protected through the use of Maxiprufe 2000 waterproof membrane and Hydrocrete Watertight Concrete.
