Services Design Associates have completed the comprehensive refurbishment and extension of the existing Student Union Building, to provide up to date facilities appropriate to the current and future needs of the University of Sheffield and its students.
The project included:
• Two flexible entertainment venues complete with extensive state of the art, audio visual installations
• New feature entrance area
• Numerous Retail Outlets
• Bar and Café facilities
• Student Services and Information Facilities
• Conference Space
• Ancillary and Welfare Spaces.
As one might imagine for one of Sheffield’s youth oriented entertainment venues, this facility encompasses extensive, state of the art, digital media technology which allows the venues to be used for a variety of activities including nightclub, theatres, and conferencing facilities.
The project was procured on a design and build contract with SDA retained by the Client to comment upon the Contractor’s Proposals and monitor the design process.
SDA were subsequently appointed by the University to carry out a feasibility study and prepare mechanical and electrical designs for the much larger refurbishment of the linked University House building to extend the type of facilities provided under the Student Union project.
