Bond Bryan submits Sheffield Hallam extension plans

Bond Bryan Architects has submitted a planning application for a £30 million city centre extension to Sheffield Hallam University

The seven-storey building on the corner of Charles Street and Arundel Gate, will house the university’s faculty of development and society and institute of education.

The scheme includes a sky bridge – based on a toast rack by local product designer David Mellor – which connects it to the nearby Arundel Building.

A central walkway along Brown Lane which is enclosed by a glass atrium and open to the public will also be included.

Inside the building will feature a 300 seat lecture theatre, teaching spaces, staff areas, a café and reception.

University director of estates and facilities Mark Swales said: ‘This is part of a £100 million investment in our estate over three years. It’s pivotal to improving the student experience at Sheffield Hallam and is a significant development in the heart of the city centre.

He added: ‘We have worked closely with Bond Bryan architects and planners to produce a design which incorporates the heritage of the local area, but also reflects the forward thinking values of the University.’

The project is an amended version of a scheme which won planning permission in 2010. Construction is expected to start later this year with the building due to complete in 2015.
