Motorway makeover

Bennett Architectural has been chosen to work on the £60m development of Skelton Lake Services on Junction 45 of the M1 in Leeds.

The new services, located at the gateway to the Leeds Enterprise Zone, will create more than 700 new jobs throughout its construction and operation.

Bennetts will supply and install Kawneer doors, windows, curtain walling and brise soleil on the project, working with contractor Morgan Sindall and from designs from Architecture 519.

Lionel Grant, managing director at Bennett Architectural, said: “This is an exciting and large-scale project for our team to be involved with. We have refined our installation of brise soleil on stunning projects at John Taylor Free School and Abcam Bio-Medical Campus in the past 12 months and have no doubt it will complement the design of Skelton Lake Services.”

Skelton Lake Services is set to open in Summer 2019, significantly improving road safety for this section of the M1 motorway.
