University of Sheffield to tear down brand new faculty building

Social sciences building project runs into problems and must be rebuilt

The University of Sheffield has begun to demolish up to half of its new £65m social sciences faculty building after construction work ran into problems.

According to the university, the new “world-class” facility will “enhance the student experience and encourage interdisciplinary research”. Construction started in May 2019, and once complete, the faculty will feature “collaborative teaching and social spaces, and offer a wide range of disciplines under the same roof for the first time”.
