Context

Alpha Rail completed the installation of electrofused grating fences for a £21m student accommodation redevelopment project in Sheffield.

The site, known as the Princess Works, is located in the St Vincents Quarter of Sheffield. It was previously a brass foundry before it closed in 1972 when it was demolished to make way for archaeological investigations and site remedial works, prior to the new student accommodation being built.

The new development caters for 437 students and comprises of three residential blocks of between 6 and 8 storeys, with a central communal landscaped courtyard. The high specification brick and glass façade will house 144 studios and 293 en-suite cluster bedrooms along with a substantial communal hub area including common rooms, private study area, meeting rooms and a gym.

The project is designed to be used by students from both of Sheffield’s illustrious Universities and has been funded by a £21m investment from property development experts the Crosslane Group.

Solution

Alpha Rail was contacted by Create Construction to manufacture and install electrofused grating fences, of which over 30 linear metres of varying height provide a perimeter boundary around the new-build project.

In addition, one single-leaf gate and four double-leaf gates were also installed to enable students to pass through into the development and to provide safe access in and out of the building.

All metalwork supplied was galvanised and polyester powder-coated RAL 7016 Anthracite Grey.

Testimonial

"A great deal of planning, effort and determination has gone into this project, to ensure that it was ready for the beginning of the 2017/18 academic year. I am pleased that our dedication to the job has been matched by Alpha Rail who have also worked hard to enable us to meet this deadline."
