University Business School has won an award for best altered
building in the City of Leeds awards for architecture.
The only award in its category, the project was commended
for the quality and standard of the £15m refurbishment
of the former Leeds Grammar School, designed and built
by E M Barry in 1857.
of estates Robert Sladdin said: "This is a fitting acknowledgement
of an exciting design, created to provide state-of-the-art
factilities for the business school, but also to restore
the buildings extensively 'modernised' in the 1960s
to their former glory."
