Opal 2


PRINCIPAL CONTRACTOR: Ocon Construction Ltd CLIENT: Opal Developments VALUE: £600,000.00
WORKS PACKAGE: Light Weight Structural Framing System

A sister to Opal 1, Sheffield’s Opal 2 student accommodation follows the standards set by its predecessor as ‘premier student accommodation’. This was a mixed use, new build development to provide 986 student bedrooms 190 residential apartments with retail and leisure facilities.

An integral part of Sheffield’s St.George’s Quarter master regeneration plan, the contemporary scheme provides semi-public courtyards and a small cluster of ancillary facilities at the core. The strong residential component promotes a safe and populated environment and a dense urban village character for students, academic staff and private tenants.

CLM were responsible for the construction of the external light weight structural steel framing system which was constructed from scissor lifts without the use of traditional scaffolding thus reducing costs for the main contractor.
