Sheffield Hallam University
Hughes and Salvidge were chosen as the preferred demolition contractor for the project to prepare the site for the new construction. The work included the demolition of the Heart of the Campus, Marshall Hall and Yorkon buildings.
Sheffield Hallam University’s Collegiate Campus has been revamped with a major £25 million investment project to create impressive new facilities and a fantastic learning environment for students based there.
The development included a completely new building in place of the previous ‘Heart of the Campus’, with a new café, glazed atrium, lecture theatre, study areas and social spaces.
In line with the University’s commitment to delivering a sustainable estate, Hughes and Salvidge’s approach to reducing waste and minimising the burden on landfill were influential in securing this contract. As standard we aim to achieve a recycling rate in excess of 95% of demolition arisings on all our projects.
This site was assessed by the Considerate Constructors Scheme and awarded a ‘Performance Beyond Compliance’ certificate. The site auditor was very impressed with our awareness and commitment to the CCS and he made the following summary comment on his report, “The Demolition Contractor makes a very strong point of applying all the principles of the CC Scheme to present a very approachable attitude to the public in addition to good presentation”.
Brian Badger, Senior Project Manager for the University said “Hughes and Salvidge performed very well and went out of their way to help keep all stakeholders happy. We were more than happy with their work. I would not hesitate to recommend them for future work.”
