Solar Shading Case Studies
Bridgewater Place, Leeds


Bridgewater Place is one of the most prestigious mixed use developments in Leeds.

The 32 storey building needed protecting from the constant solar glare and heat gain whilst ensuring that the occupiers could still take in the panoramic views of Leeds and beyond.

The majority of office space was taken by Evershed Solicitors and they, with their chosen interior design specialists Aedas, would pioneer the choice of product which was to be used throughout all of the offices.

Subsequent tenants to move into Bridgewater Place include, GHD, Ernst & Young and DWF LLP.


Over 1000 Linea 314 system roller blinds throughout with a mixture of manual and electric operation. For aesthetics the aluminium headbox for the blind was powder coated white or charcoal to blend in with the internal décor.

Fabric used throughout was Lineascreen in open office areas and Unilux in Boardroom and meeting areas enabling the aesthetics of the exterior of the building to be uniform in colour whilst giving a choice of colours for client’s to match their internal décor.

Linea systems’ 5/10 year warranty gave all of the tenants the peace of mind of a long term maintenance free operation.
