Hallam Union Building of Sheffield (HUBS)

Stunning…. by design

The amazing silver drums of the Hallam Union Building of Sheffield (HUBS) are a unique and unrivalled welfare and social facility for 28,000 students at the University and will also be open to the public.

HUBS houses the student advice centre and volunteering team, a shop, social space and activities area, as well as three multi-functional entertainment rooms and a stylish café/bar.

A high traffic, high usage building catering for the needs of demanding students, university staff and members of the public, requires a tough solution that will stand up to the challenge – and to cap it all the rooms were circular!!

Extreme challenges require extreme solutions and inscape’s Extremus range of cubicles were just right for the job. Made from tough 12mm solid laminate, Extremus cubicles are virtually indestructible. Totally resistant to moisture and humidity and, requiring tungsten tipped tools to cut and machine them, the Extremus range just shrugs off wear and tear.

Complementing the cubicles, Industria pre-plumbed duct panels formed the rear of the cubicles and the urinal walls providing easy access to pipework and other services concealed behind. The vanity units, manufactured from Industria Mezzo (half-height) units complete with face mounted basins and centre-mounted non-concussive taps, completed the picture.
