Local contractor appointed to Sheffield’s ‘landmark’ Heart of the City development
A local construction specialist has been appointed to a ‘landmark’ urban development in South Yorkshire.
Henry Boot Construction has been selected for two developments within the Heart of the City project in Sheffield.
The firm is set to begin work on the cultural and social destination known as Cambridge Street Collective and low carbon office building Elshaw House, on the city centre site between Wellington Street, Carver Street and Cambridge Street.
The historic buildings fronting Cambridge Street, notably Henry’s Corner and Bethel Sunday School, are to be retained, and along with an adjoining new structure behind them, will deliver a 20,000 sq ft industrial-styled food hall and a 15,000 sq ft live entertainment venue.
Alongside Cambridge Street Collective, Henry Boot Construction will also work on the brand new Elshaw House – a dark metal building that will incorporate around 70,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over seven floors.
Tony Shaw, director for Henry Boot Construction, commented: “This is a strategically important urban development project for Henry Boot Construction that will create a significant sustainable landmark in the cultural heart of the city.
“As part of our continued commitment to Sheffield and as a major local employer, we will deliver life changing social value outputs through our local supply chain and site-specific employment and training initiatives.”
Cllr Mazher Iqbal, cabinet member for business and investment at Sheffield City Council, added: “We are excited to see construction work on these key city centre projects gearing up.
“This is understandably an unsettling time for many of us, so it is particularly rewarding to see cultural and sustainable projects coming to fruition that will improve both our mental and physical wellbeing and help drive the local economy in the future.”
