£220m Sheffield Hallam University Development

Asite has been chosen as the Common Data Environment (CDE) solutions for Sheffield Hallam University’s development project to improve its estate.

Sheffield Hallam is aiming to become the world’s leading applied university, and it has unveiled its 20-year masterplan to transform its campus, with Asite being chosen as CDE provider for the initial phase of works.

This initial phase will be delivered over the next five years, and, will include new buildings for the university’s Business School and social sciences, as well as a refurbishment of the Students Union building which is known as The HUB, along with creating a University Green and improving the current estate. The multi-year contract will also see Asite supporting the regeneration and development of the university, along with the wider region.

Asite SVP for the UK and Europe Rob Clifton, said: “Asite has always prided itself on its facilitative relationship with universities and higher education institutions in the UK and on supporting the development of a strong educational infrastructure, both in terms of the built environment and resources.

“The regeneration project at Sheffield Hallam University presents a significant opportunity for the university to enhance its presence and position itself as a leading international institution.

“As Asite moves to become the leading integrated supply chain solution for infrastructure projects around the world, we are excited to be a part of such a bold redevelopment mission.”

The platform which Asite produces will allow the estate to store and manage its data and project management information in a centralised repository. It will also support protocol standardisation across management teams and through the lifecycle and will allow for enhanced privacy and visibility of records at role, distribution group and organisation level.

Sheffield Hallam University will implement the platform across their projects at RIBA Stage 0-7 which will enhance document, workflow and information management best practices, and ensure compliance with international BIM standards – ISO 19650 – published last year.
