Seventeen local firms threw their hats in the ring when the call for entries first went out and the strongest four contenders were invited to submit their ideas for transforming this Sheffield landmark at the heart of the University’s city campus.

Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson’s experience in this type of development, along with their creative approach to the project, won the day and they have now been appointed to work alongside the University team and Henderson’s to prepare the designs for a planning application later this year.

Keith Lilley, Director of Estates and Facilities Management at the University said: “We were really delighted with the high quality approach from all our finalists but the concept that Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson developed just really hit the spot with a great design to incorporate the original house into a stunning modern setting.

“We believe the pub will be a fantastic addition to opening up the spaces around the University to make it a more welcoming place for the people of Sheffield and we know that Hendersons' many fans will enjoy the opportunity to spend time in the place that was home to Henderson’s for so long.”

Pamela Freeman, managing director of Henderson’s, said she and everyone else involved with the company were really excited to see the plans developing: “Having the chance to be part of this project and see the building that was such an important part of our company’s history preserved and brought into public use is fantastic. We love the ideas that the architects have developed and can’t wait to see the new building take shape.”
