Burflex Transforms Vacant Office Building in Sheffield
Burflex has recently been involved in the transformation of a vacant office building in Furnival Square in the city of Sheffield, bringing it back from the brink and turning the site into high-end accommodation and luxury apartments, as well as business management facilities.
The nine-storey tower was originally built back in the late 1960s and proved to be an especially complicated project because of the work involved – but it was an occasion that we rose to with aplomb.
Our team had to scaffold internally on the north-west elevation on level four of the tower block, necessary in order to beam out the windows and bridge the span oversailing Redevers House, so that there was no need for scaffolding systems to come from the roof of the building next door.
Working alongside The Broadley Group, we were involved in the redevelopment and conversion of the vacant building, turning it into a completed residential apartment block with an extra two-floor extension to create a development of 69 residential units.
The tower itself is a well-known landmark in Sheffield and it’s exciting to see it being brought back to life – and our team is proud to have been involved in a restoration project of this kind.
