Bond Bryan was appointed to establish a 15 year Development Framework for the Faculty of Engineering. The Faculty, one of the largest in the University, has an international reputation for teaching and research plus ambitious growth plans. The existing buildings are some of the oldest in the University and include Grade II listed structures.

The study provides a routemap targeting:

- Improved condition of the oldest part of the estate
- 21st Century engineering teaching centres
- Demand led space allocation, ensuring efficient use of space
- A phasing plan that ensures continuity of academic delivery
- Reduced carbon levels to meet HEFCE and University targets

The Graduate School will provide post-graduate research suites for Robotics, Energy and Composites each with post-doctoral offices and collaborative learning environments. The Engineering Commons will act as a central undergraduate facility fostering multidisciplinary working between all departments. At the centre of the campus the Engineering Heart-space will transform an unattractive external space providing an enclosed social centre.

"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.
