This stunning development has sustainably combined traditional and modern construction to create a fitting new home for the University of Sheffield Faculty of Engineering.

The University of Sheffield is a Russell Group university and global leader for engineering research, with a £120m per annum income. The project vision was to bring the growing faculty departments together in a dynamic social and collaboration space and deliver a more sustainable campus.

This was accomplished by fully refurbishing the Grade II listed Sir Frederick Mappin Building and 1885 Central Wing and connecting them with a dramatic glass roof, enclosing a social space and two contemporary glazed accommodation blocks. The undulating atrium glass roof celebrates engineering excellence, which has been at the heart of Sheffield’s development since the industrial revolution and this continues through the global reputation of the University.

Bridgman provided several bespoke white oak doorsets with softwood/hardwood primed frames with factory fitted ironmongery to reduce the joinery fitting time and cost on-site.

The BREEAM “Excellent” Mitford unit for Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust provides 24- hour inpatient support and treatment for up to 15 adults with severely complex autistic spectrum disorders. Built by Kier under ProCure21+, the accommodation comprises eight single-person and two and three-person shared flats within four fingers of accommodation linked at their southern end by a band of shared spaces interspersed with staff facilities. Given there was no precedent in the UK for this type of building, the project team had to develop design standards harnessing knowledge gained from visits to other residential buildings for autism patients, information from organisations such as the Autistic Society, and first-hand knowledge from the trust’s clinicians. The unit’s design has created a calm and protective setting that helps ensure the comfort and privacy of its residents while responding sensitively to the existing established features of the wider hospital site

.

Bridgman provided several specialist doorsets which included anti-barricade,  seclusion rooms,  ensuite doors and non-clinical doorsets. The factory fitted stainless steel anti-ligature ironmongery completed the laminate and PVC doors.

Design of a new high quality, landmark office building in central Ipswich, providing the new Headquarters for Birketts Solicitors. As the building is within an area of potential flooding, the lowest floors had to be designed to sit at a higher level. This involved the careful design and integration of external ramps, steps and landscaping to allow full access and egress without forgoing an attractive building frontage. As with all our office designs, we have created an efficient internal layout that balances flexibility with the use of robust materials and detailing. We also liaised with the tenant to integrate the internal alterations they required for their fit-out. The building has been built to BREEAM Very good.

The project was completed on time ready for the grand opening by HRH Prince Edward on 11th May 2018.

Bridgman supplied striking American White Oak pre-hung and certified doorsets to the main contractor. Durability was a key requirement and Bridgman’s provided with the unique flax severe-duty door core which has an excellent ironmongery provision.
