Crossway Scaffolding has been commissioned to deliver a full external scaffold and birdcage for the refurbishment of the Grade II listed Sir Frederick Mappin Building in Sheffield.
The atrium will be housed under an impressive curved glass roof that will link the two buildings. An alternative entrance to both the Mappin and Central Block buildings will also be created from Portobello Street. The project is designed to aid communication and collaboration.
Crossway will be providing a full external scaffold as well as a huge birdcage so a free-form roof can be installed over the new atrium.
Work is well underway and it is anticipated to take about a year to complete.
