In the outskirts of Leeds, Adel Square is witnessing a remarkable transformation. Advent, an award-winning developer, is undertaking a project that combines the restoration of Grade II listed buildings with contemporary new constructions, reshaping the living spaces in Leeds.


With 72 family homes across all phases, it seamlessly bridges the gap between heritage and modernity.

Adel Square’s distinctive character presented a dual challenge – preserving the historical integrity of Grade II listed structures while integrating cutting-edge designs for the new builds.  Advent required a structural warranty that would be accepted by the UK Finance and provided full structural cover without any unnecessary exclusion clauses and a tailored warranty to cover the preservation, conversion and extension of the building.

Advent provided detailed structural reports and design details, including foundation design, relevant plans and elevations, along with the proposed construction programme in order to obtain suitable A-rated terms from a number of providers in the market.

Matt Blackhall, Senior Advisor at J3, meticulously reviewed the project and assessed the associated risks. A formal quote was subsequently sent to the client, with a schedule in place to oversee critical stages of the project, from foundations and DPC to the superstructure, until completion.

Tim Reeve, Director, Advent  added, “We found the whole experience of working alongside the J3 team very good and would certainly recommend J3 to my associates in the trade.”

J3’s partnership with the Yorkshire based developer extends beyond this project. Advent has consistently entrusted J3 to place their residential structural warranties on multiple schemes, reflecting the mutual trust and successful collaboration that has developed over time. This ongoing relationship underscores the J3’s expertise and reliability in safeguarding Advent’s investments and ensuring the longevity of their various ventures.

Homes England funding further emphases the commitment to quality at Adel Square. The project aims to excel not only in design and construction but also in assuring the quality and durability of the finished homes.

Residential Structural Warranties:

While being results-driven and providing a fresh approach, we also offer the benefits of continuity. We frequently take care of the insurance on multiple schemes with the same client, becoming an extension of their businesses. Clients benefit from our detailed knowledge of their projects, their objectives, and a deepening relationship with their people. This evokes confidence not only from our clients but also the insurers and underwriters we place business with.
