The Graduate School is the first phase of the University of Sheffield’s 15-year Faculty of Engineering Development Framework, established via a strategic Study undertaken by Bond Bryan during 2010. Filling a corner plot, the building improves communication by connecting to the two largest buildings in the faculty. 

The Graduate school forms a centre of excellence for specialist postgraduate research including a suite of three research labs that sit alongside support spaces for postgraduate research workrooms and offices. Each of these units are clustered round an atrium forming a dynamic research collaboration space to allow engineers from different disciplines to freely exchange ideas and thus supporting a culture of innovative and creative working.

The lab spaces are highly flexible, designed to accommodate significantly scaled research projects from any of the Faculty’s seven departments over coming years. This has been enabled by a centralised servicing strategy that can be easily adapted to support different activities in the future.

Externally the centre is a contemporary interpretation of the redbrick campus developed over the last 100 years, through the adoption of ceramic louvered panels within a concrete, brick and glazed composition. Large glazed openings offer direct views of the faculty’s activities from Broad Lane.

"I have worked with Bond Bryan Architects for over 20 years on Education schemes at both the University of Sheffield and previously at Sheffield Hallam University.  They have proved to be excellent architects with the ability to engage with the client, who usually are new to major projects, and skillfully develop a brief that meets their aspirations with vision and flair".  

David Briggs, Project Manager - The University of Sheffield.
