38 Mappin Street, The University of Sheffield

38 Mappin St Refurbishment & Extension

The University of Sheffield

Re-imagining existing space to achieve best value from the University’s current estate.

Our latest completed project for the University of Sheffield will reduce the energy consumption of the existing building by 52% and CO2 emissions by 64%, exceeding the University requirement to comply with HEFCE carbon targets and create an exemplar for sustainable re-use.

The £7.2 million refurbishment of 38 Mappin Street creates a state of the art flexible teaching facility with a range of flat-floor, small to large capacity teaching spaces, seminar, meeting, prayer and workshop spaces. We worked closely with the university’s stakeholders to create the brief and test a range of design options. The preferred solution supports envisaged future teaching models, increases natural daylight into the building, and improves circulation and connectivity between spaces. A selection of photographs is attached.

Twelve Architects acted as lead consultant and provided full architectural and interior design services. The project was completed on time and within budget in the summer of 2017.

The completion of 38 Mappin Street is the second project we have completed for the University of Sheffield, following The Diamond a state-of-the-art engineering faculty which has contributed to significantly increasing applications to study these subjects.
