The new building, provides the Sheffield’s Royal Society for the Blind with state of the art facilities on 2 floors with additional student accommodation on 6 floors above. Lower basement up to 1st floor level are constructed from traditional reinforced concrete. Above the 1st floor deck level the upper student accommodation units are of modular construction using an innovative system of off site prefabricated floor cassettes and cold formed load bearing panels. 3e worked in conjunction with Henley Building Systems to deliver this solution which comprises floor cassettes formed of 50mm top and bottom concrete panels over a hot rolled frame. Each panel is supported on load bearing wall panels fabricated from cold formed sections. This systems allows external cladding and windows to be installed on the panels off site and reduces on site time. A major contributing factor in enabling this system to work effectively is due to the role of the architect, The Design Buro, in adopting materials which marry with the concept.
