Representatives from Sheffield Hallam University, Houlton, engineers Mason Clark and architects Watson Batty as well as subcontractors working on the project attended a steel signing ceremony for the STEM project at Sheffield Hallam University. The ceremony signified a significant phase within the construction process whereby the steel structure creating the framework for the new atrium between the Sheaf building and EMB, is in its final stages. The occasion was marked by a representative of the University and Houlton signing a steel section prior to it being lifted into position.
Prior to the signing, both Mark Swales (Director of Estates and Facilities) and Chris Husbands ( Vice Chancellor) said a few words, followed by Paul Dickerson, Houlton Managing Director. Paul and the Chair of the Board of Governors for the university, Geoff Dawson went on to sign the steel.
The group then headed to the refurbished scale up room in the Sheaf building for refreshments where they could also see first hand, the space that had been created to accommodate a new collaborative learning environment.
