University of Sheffield - Geography and Planning Building


A strategy for improvements to the University of Sheffield Geography and Planning Building, implemented in 2010.  The 1960’s building was designed as a cluster of hexagons for the communal and teaching spaces, with a rectangular block for academic offices. In developing the brief, the study expanded to look at the building as a whole and make recommendations to:

Improve the energy performance of the building.

Improve accessibility.

Increase toilet facilities.

Reassess the fire strategy.

Rationalise Departmental use.

Improve the ‘image’ of the building.

Provide long-term improvements to the building
