    Creating exceptional facilities for the University of Sheffield

An extensive refurbishment and extension project that provides flexible modern teaching spaces in the three storey St George's Library building, whilst retaining the building's beautiful historic features.

The new layout is flooded with natural light and cleverly designed to improve circulation between teaching spaces, with a moveable partition wall creating a flexible dance and music workshop. Other spaces, such as seminar rooms and workshop teaching spaces can also double up as exam rooms in the busy summer terms.

The standards that Henry Boot Construction maintain to support the University are of the highest quality and we are delighted with the results of this refurbishment.

The building remained fully operational and accessible throughout the scheme. Out of hours working was incorporated into the programme to limit disruption to the building’s occupiers and the local community. To maintain the university’s corporate identity, fabricated bespoke furniture was produced using the campus’ primary and secondary colour palette. Glass privacy screens and a high quality finish were also specified.
