A former Edwardian mill in Leeds has been sensitively restored and turned into a stunning development of luxury apartments by Leeds based ALPHA Aluminium.

Each of the 89 spacious flats at Horsforth Mill, bursting with character and craftsmanship, have received a unique new look thanks to Jack Aluminium Systems.

The £11m project used the JCW curtain walling system to create cutting-edge style without losing the building’s local heritage. Specially-engineered, the TW70 thermally-efficient window system was also commissioned throughout the two-year restoration.

To complete the project, the TD68 thermal door that is designed to be a reliable high-traffic commercial aluminium door, also featured.

Jack Aluminium and ALPHA have a long-standing and successful relationship and have worked on several projects together. The excellent partnership continued at Horsforth Mill.

Marius Miotk, project manager at ALPHA Aluminium, says: “Horsforth Mill was a really interesting development. We worked closely with Jack Aluminium during the 60-week project, to transform the old mill and sensitively restore it.

“Whenever we order aluminium from Jack Aluminium, the process is always straight-forward and that’s what we need when we’ve got deadlines to meet.”

Andy Short, at Jack Aluminium Systems, says: “This was a fascinating restoration project. Floor by floor, this amazing building was brought back to life.

“ALPHA has been a customer of ours for a very long time and it was great to team up with them on this project. As well as measuring and quoting for materials, we organised delivery to suit project timescales and fit in with the work on the ground.”

Horsforth Mill was originally the largest textile mills in the north of the England. Today, bespoke one and two bedroomed apartments now take pride of place inside the original building, which feature full-height picture windows, impressive balconies and roof terraces.
