Leeds is seen by many as the unofficial capital of Yorkshire. With its links to the industrial revolution and a storied past, it’s long been established as a northern powerhouse. Today, it’s a city looking to the future, with record-breaking levels of construction in Leeds creating exciting new neighbourhoods and revitalising existing districts across the city.

There’s a real mix of activity behind Leeds’ resurgence. Regeneration is being driven by an expanding economy, retail and leisure and the city’s universities and colleges. There are also burgeoning creative and digital industries, with marketing and advertising agencies making up a chunk of the regional economy. We’re proud to deliver the construction services Leeds needs to continue its development as one of the UK’s premier cities in which to live, work and grow.

Leisure & Entertainment Construction Services in Leeds

Construction projects like The Springs at Thorpe Park are a key part of Leeds’ progress.

We supplied our construction services in Leeds for this first-class entertainment and leisure hub. The development created a landmark site on a wider masterplan which includes business, retail and residential accommodation.

The project delivered over 160,000sq.ft. of prime retail, 38,000sq.ft. of restaurants, 70,000 sq.ft. of leisure facilities and more than 900 parking spaces. As a building company operating in Leeds, GMI are at home with this scale of build. We have a 20-plus year history at Thorpe Park, where we have been responsible for all construction work to date.

Commercial Construction Services in Leeds City Centre

The development at 12 King Street is testament to GMI’s ability to provide the complex building services Leeds relies on, thanks to our expert workforce. Located in the Central Business District, the Cat A Level design of this iconic £9.5m project on behalf of Opus North, has drawn a lot of interest since its completion in 2022.

Occupying a prime position in the heart of Leeds City Centre, the transformation included a brand-new façade, complete replacement of the fifth and sixth floors, a state-of-the-art cycle spa and two new floors with communal lounge and extensive roof terraces.

Student Accommodation Construction Services in Leeds City Centre

Attracting and retaining students is a vital part of Leeds’ present and future success and one way to do this is through world-class student accommodation. Oak House is student accommodation with an exceptional finish, located 10-minutes from the University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University.

In order to create a foundation of emotional wellbeing, every floor plan is focused on creating connection. At GMI, that’s just what we do, which is why Oak House is a place for people and not just student housing. The finish and quality GMI has put into this building has created 188 spaces specifically designed with growth and belonging in mind.

The space is light and with an onsite gym space, bike storage and communal rooms integrated into the building, this inner-city plot and the people living here will help Leeds to continue to be a vibrant and forward-thinking city.
