Project: University of Sheffield, Engineering Building ‘The Diamond’
Architect: Twelve Architects
Project Value: £81m

European Doorsets are delighted to have recently secured the complete doorset & ironmongery package to the new state-of-the-art Engineering Building at Sheffield
University, known as ‘The Diamond’.

The Diamond is the largest investment ever made in new teaching & learning facilities at the University, built over six floors it will provide specialist engineering teaching facilities including 19 labs, workshop space, seminar rooms, lecture theatres, open-plan learning spaces, a library and recreational space for private study.

550nr doorsets will be supplied in total in which the majority of the doors will be faced in a crown-cut Black Stained Ash veneer with concealed Oak lipping’s, and supplied complete with primed frames for painting on site. These doorsets will be installed mainly within the teaching and communal areas. Meanwhile, paint-grade doorsets will be manufactured for the Riser and Plant Rooms with many having a fire-resistance of 120 minutes. These high-performance fire doorsets will be manufactured from our Ignis range of doorsets and are constructed using specialist materials.

The project is due to be completed ready for the September 2015 intake.
