Contractor: Kier Northern
Type of works: installation of floor-to-ceiling maple screens incorporating Leaderflush Shapland door leaves.
The refurbishment of one of Sheffields most treasured buildings, the Victorian wing of the old Jessop Hospital for Women, has successfully been completed.
The Jessop Building, as it will now be known, is Grade II listed and will provide teaching space, office space and a computer studio for the Universitys Department of Music.
The interior has been designed to maximise space and allow natural light to flow between rooms and passageways. Architects, careyjones, worked with main contractor, Kier Northern, to reinstate and repair many of the existing features of the building as well as add new elements and transform dark corridors. By using full height, floor to ceiling maple screens incorporating door leaves from Leaderflush Shaplands Designer range, light can spill from one room to the next, illuminating the existing features of the building and creating a light, spacious environment.
Leaderflush Shapland can incorporate door leaves into glazed screens for almost any application whilst offering fire certification and sound reduction. Screens are supplied ready for on-site glazing with either hardwood or softwood frames, primed ready for painting or, as in the Jessop Building, finished in the unique Hygienilac® anti-microbial lacquer.
With extensive experience across many sectors including commercial, health and education, Leaderflush Shapland, the UKs leading performance doorset manufacturer, has the capacity to deliver, even for the largest, fast-track developments and renovation projects such as the Jessop Building.
