Leading Edge Sustainability Features In New Hallam University Building
Aiming to boast some of the most sustainable and energy-saving features anywhere in the city, Sheffield Hallam University’s new Furnival Building, designed by Bond Bryan Architects, will feature a ground source heat pump, energy from burning Sheffield’s rubbish and domestic hot water will be heated by solar panels and special photovoltaic cells will power the decorative outside lighting.
The previous two-storey 1950’s building has been demolished and construction of the new building has now begun.
The new 9,500 square metre Furnival Building for the Arts, Computing, Engineering and Sciences features a dramatic three-storey atrium, allowing natural daylight to penetrate its heart, give legibility to the primary circulation and integrating a wave shaped double height lecture theatre at first and second floor levels.
Large street level windows along Furnival Street promote a ‘café culture’ and
the Gallery will display art works as the public interface along Arundel
