Assembling beams JLP01_08_053121

COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL, GEDLING ROAD, ARNOLD, GEDLING, NOTTINGHAMSHIRE. Workers assembling Laingspan beams from individual concrete elements during the construction of Arnold County High School.
Work began on the site in March 1958 and construction was completed for the new school term in September 1959. Laingspan was a flexible modular system of frame construction using precast pre-stressed concrete units. Laing developed the system in conjunction with the Architects and Buildings Branch of the Ministry of Education and consulting engineer A J Harris. The Arnold school was the first building for which the system was used beyond a prototype extension to Laing's own Research and Development Centre. Designed to economise on steel consumption and minimise on wet trades to speed up construction, the system went on to be used for other building types including offices and hospitals

Durham University, Parson's Field House, Durham, County Durham. Three men reading newspapers in the students common room in Parson's Field House halls of residence at Durham University.
The Parson's Field House halls of residence were designed by the architects Bernard Taylor and Associates and were built by the Northern Region of Laing's Construction Company. Three four-storey blocks were constructed using Laingwall prefabricated concrete units, including block one which contained the main dining room and common rooms on the ground floor with study bedrooms on the upper floors, block two contained administration offices on the ground floor with bedrooms above and block three contained study bedrooms. Work on the site started in in June 1964 and was completed in June 1966 when it was handed over to the university authorities for furnishing. These buildings have subsequently been demolished
