Sheffield Hallam University
G-Tech Electrical Contractors Ltd have successfully handed over the £8m refurbishment project for Sheffield Hallam University.
The University’s investment was aimed at supporting high-quality science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) teaching and research. This meant that the Sheaf and Eric Mensforth buildings had significant upgrades.
Now completed, the redevelopment will provide staff and students with the very best in learning and teaching spaces, alongside a striking new atrium which will create an impressive entranceway to the University’s City Campus.
Work started on this YORbuild project over the 2015 August Bank Holiday weekend, and it involved closing off the main concourse access between the Sheaf and Eric Mensforth buildings. Work on the buildings were completed and handed over in April 2017, ahead of an official opening in October.
Improvements included the creation of a stunning new atrium linking the two buildings, with opportunities for galleries, collaborative spaces and social learning, a cutting-edge chemistry lab, and a new engineering area.
