Sheffield Digital Campus development has reached a key milestone in its construction
Endeavour, the fourth and final phase of the acclaimed Sheffield Digital Campus development has reached a key milestone in its construction.
Cllr Julie Grocutt, Deputy Leader of Sheffield City Council and Co-Chair of the Transport, Regeneration and Climate Policy Committee, joined representatives from developer, Scarborough Group International (SGI) alongside the wider project team to celebrate the topping out event on Thursday 23 June 2022.
Work on the eight-storey, 63,000 sq ft super-prime, state-of-the-art, grade A, office building started in June 2021 and is due to complete by January 2023, bringing to a close 15 years of development at the Digital Campus that has seen a once derelict site transformed into a thriving cluster for the creative, digital and professional services industries.
Designed by award-winning architects, Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher and delivered by principal contractor, GMI Construction Group Plc, Endeavour will provide office space capable of sub-division to accommodate a diverse range of businesses.
The building also incorporates a number of enhanced wellbeing and sustainability measures to optimise the occupier’s user experience, including reducing the amount of touch points throughout the building alongside increased cycling provisions, spa quality changing facilities and a greater provision of EV car parking bays.
Adam Varley, Development Director at SGI, commented, “getting the project to where it is today has not been without its challenges however our ‘partnership’ approach to development has ensured that we have been able to continue to deliver this exemplary office building.”
Julie commented, “Sheffield City Council is committed to ensuring our city not only remains an attractive place to do business but also lessens its impact on the environment. Endeavour will provide the perfect platform for both and I’m really looking forward to seeing the building envelop evolve throughout its final stages of construction over the coming months.”
The building has been funded via a joint venture agreement between SGI and Metro Holdings of Singapore, supported by a £4m mezzanine loan from the SCR Jessica Fund alongside a £10m Senior Loan from The South Yorkshire Pension Fund, both of which are managed by CBRE Capital Advisors.
