Environmental regeneration

Climate Innovation District (CID) will deliver 530 new homes, all low carbon with manufacturing, leisure, offices and climate resilient public spaces. Its aim is to economically build a healthier, smarter and better-connected zero carbon hub in the South Bank of Leeds, becoming the most significant regeneration project in the UK.

The first phase consists of twelve independent timber frame structures containing three to four storey apartments. Each block is built over a reinforced concrete car park which extends across the full length of the site, providing a car-free environment at ground level.

The new district provides lots of open space and makes the most of the river with cleverly built outdoor areas. All roof spaces are shared between solar panels and residents, whilst car areas are segregated allowing pedestrian zones to be car-free.

RISE love working with the client, architect, manufacturer and contractor who are all working closely together. Our aims are much more than delivering low carbon housing, we think about every stage of the project, learn from what is being fabricated, and consider carefully how it is going to be built on site. Feedback constantly improves the entire design / construction cycle.
