  • Graham Solley Sports Pavilion

    A purpose-built home for Sheffield Hallam University students to train and compete

A £4.6m project to enhance the experience of students and the local community. The new modern two storey pavilion is designed to maximise visibility, with 360 degree views from the first floor balconies.

The pavilion is placed centrally within the new 3G synthetic football and rugby pitches and incorporates leisure facilities with a social hub, including licensed bar. The building embraces sustainability, taking advantage of natural ventilation, with solar heating providing hot water. Glulam beams were also incorporated as a more sustainable alternative to steel and concrete.

Henry Boot’s performance has been exemplary. The end result is a development which I believe we can both be proud of and one which will have a lasting impact on the student experience and the experience of the many community groups that will be using the new facilities. Thank you once again to you and your team for a job well done.
