The redeveloped Concourse that provides essential connectivity within the University of Sheffield’s campus has been honoured with a sixth industry award.

The Concourse won the Outside Space FX Award 2021, beating off stiff international competition from projects in China and the USA.

The award submission highlighted how the redevelopment had 

“...transformed a featureless concourse area to become a vibrant, social and meaningful space….Its uncluttered design provides a flexible space for a variety of users and functions that occur through the university’s academic year, making it an animated place both day and night….”

This award joins the ever growing number of tributes in recognition of the hugely successful project, taking it’s tally to six.
