The Rose Bowl is a new £32 million business school comprising academic and supporting staff offices, teaching rooms, seven lecture theatres, a large cafeteria and ancillary spaces. The primary teaching spaces, the lecture theatres, are accommodated in a pod which floats in the interstitial space of the atrium which in turn is defined by the U-shaped peripheral accommodation.

The Rose Bowl is a landmark building for the City of Leeds. This centrally located state of the art development features the very latest in modern conferencing facilities and design as well as functioning as a business school. Offering a corporate level of service, this venue is ideal for banquets, receptions, conferences, exhibitions, meetings and training.

PMJ Masonry were tasked with cladding the external steps, walkways, retaining walls and planters in Yorkstone Limestone and Granite which provided aesthetically pleasing environment for staff and visitors. Furthermore, Granite Cubes were set within the paving at intervals alongside the entrance to the building. The Granite Cubes were installed on Granite Paving, which is designed to support high loading requirements.
