In its bid to become the world’s leading applied university, Sheffield Hallam University has unveiled a 20-year masterplan to transform its campus and Asite has been chosen as the common data environment (CDE) provider
The initial phase of this masterplan will be delivered over the next five years and will include new buildings for the Business School and social sciences, refurbishing the Students’ Union building known as The HUBS, creating a University Green and improving the current estate.
Students will benefit from new buildings, green spaces and general improvement works upon completion of the Campus Masterplan.
This multi-year common data environment contract will see Asite support the regeneration and development of the university and wider region.
Asite’s platform will allow the estate to store and manage its data and project management information in a centralised repository. It also supports protocol standardisation across project teams and throughout the lifecycle and will allow for enhanced privacy and visibility of records at role, distribution group, and organisation level.
Sheffield Hallam University will implement the platform across their projects at RIBA Stage 0-7 which will enhance document, workflow and information management best practices, and ensure compliance with international BIM standards – ISO 19650 – published last year.
Opportunity for the University
Rob Clifton, Asite SVP for the UK and Europe, said: “Asite has always prided itself on its facilitative relationship with universities and higher education institutions in the UK and on supporting the development of a strong educational infrastructure, both in terms of the built environment and resources.
The regeneration project at Sheffield Hallam University presents a significant opportunity for the university to enhance its presence and position itself as a leading international institution.
As Asite move to become the leading integrated supply chain solution for infrastructure projects around the world, we are excited to be a part of such a bold redevelopment mission.”
