Henry Boot Construction’s latest project for the University of Sheffield, the Management School Tier Two Works in the Crookesmoor area of Sheffield is now complete.

The site team, led by Site Manager Andrew Greaves began work on the project in June 2015. Their main aim was to deliver the project to a high standard, which included the demolition of the existing entrance and erection of a new three storey extension.

Established in 1986, Sheffield University Management School is in the global elite of business schools worldwide. Through the distinctiveness of its graduates, excellence of its staff, intellectually rigorous research and network of international partners, the Management School seeks to inform the practice of management and make a difference to its community, locally and internationally.

The new extension at the Management School created a large open plan office space for professional services. In addition, the creation of additional staff offices provided further space for academic staff. Finally, the new extension included the development of a larger Employability Hub.

Andrew Greaves said: “The Sheffield University Management School project was a successful project with a valued client. The expansion work allows the University of Sheffield to meet the needs of an ambitious and forward-thinking Business Management School.”

David Jack Hudson, Project Manager for the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Sheffield, said: “A key factor to this success was the flexibility and consideration Henry Boot Construction and the Site Manager, Andy Greaves, provided. Another success factor was attention to detail. This was an extension to an existing building and Henry Boot Construction worked hard to ensure that the working site remained out of sight to all our staff and students.

“Henry Boot Construction staff and their contractors showed real consideration for the need to operate with minimum noise and minimum mess. The new extension blends perfectly with the existing building work and has provided additional space necessary to house our increased numbers of staff, as well as expand our Employability Hub in line with the School’s Strategy.”
