Wates Construction were chosen by Leeds City College to provide their new Quarry Hill Campus and having worked directly for Leeds City College over a number of years Fresco were asked to provide their heavy duty roller blinds to the new £60m building.

Wide expanses of glazing required a robust solution to ensure that the mechanism would cope with the overall weight of the blind and also be available with wide fabrics to alleviate any requirement for unsightly seams in the blinds.


Manual operation throughout the building meant that some areas required blinds 3000mm wide x 3600mm high and the roller blind system needed to be extremely robust whilst the operation needed to be easy for everyone to use.
Linea 314 heavy duty roller blinds with blackout fabric for teaching areas and anti-glare fabric for office areas was the preferred option for Leeds City College.


Installation was carried out according to Wates Construction programme with all aspects of H&S covered including PASMA for high level installations
Leeds City College Quarry Hill Campus is a magnificent building with cutting edge facilities to give the students unrivalled opportunities to progress

Fresco Solar Shading were selected for this project as we had every confidence that they would deliver the required specifications within the allocated time. The constant communication with Mark and the fitters ensured a professional and quality installation. The team worked with us to achieve a finished product that is both modern and functional for the education sector.
