Engineering Centre, Olive Grove Sheffield College/ Clugston Construction
Race Cottam was novated to Clugston Construction to design and deliver new facilities at the Sheffield College of Applied Engineering. The project comprised a new extension and atrium link building, as well as the phased refurbishment of existing workshops to provide technical studios and specialist workshops, general teaching accommodation, a large cafe and learning resource centre, flexible breakout spaces and ancilliary accommodation.
The environmental design and energy strategy were designed not only to create an efficient and sustainable building, but to also act as a learning tool for students. The scheme achieved a BREEAM Very Good rating - the maximum possible due to the constraints imposed by the existing building.
