The Engineering Heart-space project is the third 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.  The project is designed to encourage communication and collaboration whilst providing a new identity and self-image for the faculty.

The project creates a dynamic social and research collaboration space between the two oldest buildings in the University’s estate. Via the insertion of a glazed quadruple height atrium between the Grade II listed Mappin Building and the 1885 Central wing, the project creates large areas of new highly serviced laboratories, office space and social space whilst improving faculty connectivity.

Proposals to connect the heart-space with Portobello Street will provide a new destination on the pedestrian route that links a range of University campus facilities including the Students’ Union, the Information Commons Learning Centre and University tram stop. This then offers an alternative to the congested main Mappin Building entrance to the faculty. These changes will support a projected significant growth in student numbers over the next 12 years.
