Representatives from the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority and Sheffield City Council visited the construction site adjacent to Howard Street leading up from Sheffield Train Station, which will provide a key gateway to the city centre.
Adjacent to Howard Street leading up from Sheffield Train Station, the development is the first phase of Sheffield Hallam’s campus plan and will see the construction of three new buildings around a public green space. The buildings will provide exceptional teaching and learning facilities for students and staff as well as using the latest technology and sustainability solutions to make them zero carbon ready.
The creation of a green public space will provide a heart for the campus, with more than 400 square meters of new greenery and spaces for up to 150 people to sit and relax. It will complement the extensive work being undertaken by partners to develop the Heart of the City.
The development is the first phase of wider plans to improve the city centre campus. Future phases of the campus plan will see further redevelopment and refurbishment of the city campus, enabling teaching, learning and research activity to be moved from the Collegiate campus within the next seven years, realising the ambition for a single campus in the city centre.
Delivering phase one of the campus plan, significantly improving part of Sheffield city centre, is one of the University’s key commitments in its Civic University Agreement. This includes a commitment to work with local partners to ensure plans maximise the benefits for Sheffield and the wider region.
