The Kingspan OPTIM-R Flooring System and Kingspan Thermaroof TR27 LPC/FM have been installed in floor and roof constructions as part of the multi award-winning transformation of The Piece Hall in Halifax.
The Grade I Listed building first opened in 1779 for the trade in ‘pieces’ of hand-loomed cloth. Following a multi-million-pound transformation project, the building has been reinvented as an outstanding major international cultural destination, which is strengthening the local and regional economy and enhancing local pride. The project was made possible by funding from Calderdale Council, £7 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund and support from the Garfield Weston Foundation and the Wolfson Foundation. It’s run by The Piece Hall Trust, an independent charity, to ensure the sustainable future of this magnificent building at the centre of Halifax’s vibrant cultural quarter. The project included the construction of the Council’s new adjoining Central Library and Archives as well as the creation of heritage, leisure, events and retail spaces within the conserved building.
