New Era Development, Sheffield
Main Contractor

Bowmer & Kirkland Ltd

The New Era project in Sheffield is a new 21 storey building which will contain student accommodation, penthouse apartments, shops and office space. The reinforced concrete frame consisted of 3 lift/stair cores of which 2 were constructed via slipform, with the highest core being 67m. The other core was constructed via jumpform. The slabs were constructed using the post tensioning method which offers a cost saving, due to less reinforcement and concrete being required.
