Construction of student accommodation at Allen Street, Sheffield
RJD Associates (North West) Limited have been appointed as Principal Designer and Client CDM Advisor on a development project that involves demolishing the former Steel City Marketing Limited and University of Sheffield buildings that currently occupy the site and then constructing an eight-storey student accommodation block comprising 289 studio units, communal facilities and landscaping including all associated enabling, infrastructure and external works.
The new structure is a reverse L-shaped building that will be formed in two sections, noted as Block A and Block B, with Block A having floor accommodation up to 6th and 7th floor levels and Block B having floor accommodation up to 5th floor level.
Key health and safety considerations on this project include managing the overlap and associated interfaces between the construction site and adjacent occupied areas, temporary works, demolition works, contact with live services, restricted working space, preventing unauthorized access to the construction site and traffic management. RJD Associates look forward to working alongside the project team to ensure a successful delivery of the scheme.
