GMI Construction will build the eight-storey, 67,000 sq ft, Grade A ‘Endeavour’ office building designed by architects CJCT.
Due to be delivered in Spring, 2022, it is the final of four buildings on the Sheffield DC site.
Electric Works, Ventana House and Acero have all been successfully let and subsequently sold to investors with high profile occupiers including Sky, Kennedy’s, Michael Page and Atkins and the flex-office workspace provider Spaces.
In light of the potential impact that the pandemic may have on the future use of workspace, the design of Endeavour has been modified in response to accelerated trends for making the office environment a safer place to work with smart building integration and reduced touch points, also appreciating the increasing prevalence of agile working.
The development, which has a GDV of £27m, will create up to 140 construction jobs and house up to 800 office workers when complete.
Adam Varley, Head of Commercial at Scarborough Group International, said: “We are delighted to announce our commitment to deliver this final building which will complete our promise to provide nearly a quarter of a million sq ft of prime business space at Sheffield DC.
“The scheme has and continues to prove successful, establishing a new office quarter in a super-prime location next to the city’s major transport hubs and in the centre of the development framework for new HS2 Midlands Station.
“In promoting Endeavour, we recognise the creative reputation of the city which is celebrated for innovation, pioneers and academic achievement. As well as delivering a landmark, efficient and productive working environment, we want to deliver a building that people will be proud to say this is where I work.”
Scarborough Group International is one of the most active developers across the Northern Powerhouse, with over 3m sq ft of commercial/mixed-use space under development over 524 acres of land.
