Video | Kier restores Sheffield’s famous Park Hill flats

4 November 2020

Kier has completed a £21m restoration project on a Sheffield housing development, delivering 54 student flats and 24 studio flats.

The Park Hill flats complex is Britain’s largest Grade-II-listed building, and sits above the city’s main train station.

The development opened in 1961, as part of a slum clearance project and consisted of nearly 1,000 flats but fell into disrepair. It was listed in 1998.

The new student flats constructed by Kier comprise a total of 356 bedrooms for student accommodation developer Alumno.
