Sheffield contractor JF Finnegan has been shortlisted in two categories for this year’s Celebrating Construction in South Yorkshire (CCISY) Awards.
CCISY 17 celebrates high-quality work by all sectors of the region’s construction industry and highlights the broadest possible spectrum of construction excellence throughout South Yorkshire.
The ceremony takes place at Cutlers Hall in Sheffield on Friday 13 October.
JF Finnegan has been shortlisted for two awards, ‘Project of the Year Under £5M’, for work constructed on behalf of the Harworth Group on Plots 7 & 8 at the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP), and ‘Project of the Year Over £5M’ for work carried out on the Sir Henry Royce Institute for the University of Sheffield.
The AMP is home to world class employers such as Boeing, Rolls-Royce and the University of Sheffield and is considered the heart of advanced manufacturing in the UK.
Over the 26-week construction programme, the design team was able to value engineer many aspects of the finishes to retain the high-quality expectations of the employer, whilst keeping within the planned budget.
The Sir Henry Royce Institute, consisting of three units, is the second phase of the new Advanced Manufacturing Research Campus 2 (AMRC 2) currently under development by the University of Sheffield.
The project sought to take advantage of the campus boulevard through the engagement of both building users and passers-by, by showcasing workshop activities through ‘picture frame’ elevation.
Construction began early October 2016, and all three units have practical completion dates of March 2018.
Gary Smith, Managing Director of JF Finnegan, said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for these prestigious awards which acknowledge construction work in South Yorkshire.
“We are incredibly proud of the projects that we have completed and look forward to the forthcoming ceremony to see all the work being highlighted.”
