New lifts installed at Leeds office building

Have your say

THE installation of three new 20-floor lifts is almost complete at one of the region’s tallest office buildings as the latest stage in a major refurbishment programme.

Lift and escalator manufacturer Kone, is close to completing a nine-month, £325,000 contract to replace the entire lift running technology and computerised call system at Pinnacle Leeds on Albion Street.

The work by Chertsey-based Kone, which has a regional office in Keighley, is due to be completed by mid May.

It is the final part of a £6m upgrade of the tower which started two years ago after the property, formerly West Riding House, was acquired by Moorfield Group in 2011.
