Sheffield City Centre Regeneration


The regeneration of Sheffield city centre is one of the first examples in the UK of public sector investment in ‘place making’ and infrastructure. Since the work began in 2000, the city centre has been reinvigorated, which has been a catalyst for bringing in millions of pounds of additional private sector investment.
Sheffield Train Station
Major regeneration work has transformed the entire area around the train station. The work has included a new footbridge to link the station with the Supertram stop, a revamped passenger hall with new shops, ticketing facilities and destination boards. Remodelling of Sheaf Square outside the station has provided a new, large, open pedestrian space with water features.

Digital Campus/Electric Works
The project is the result of considerable effort across the public and private sectors to deliver a high-quality development in one of Sheffield’s major sectors – digital. One of the buildings, branded as the Electric Works, has been let to Sheffield City Council who has successfully opened the building for creative and digital businesses. With state of the art IT and plug-and-play offices, the building provides a fantastic step-up for ambitious businesses who want to expand their horizons

The Crucible
Yorkshire Forward are contributing to the refurbishment of arguably one of the region’s best known brands to help diversify the night time economy, activity and visitors into the city centre. The works will modernise the building and increase capacity for the staging of significant events such as the annual Snooker World Championships.
