The Founders Yard scheme for Rise Homes is on Scotland Street in Sheffield and comprises 229 one- and two-bed flats as well as a handful of two-bed duplex apartments.

Clegg started wotk on its £27m contract in the spring.

Amenities will include a courtyard, a rooftop garden, a lounge, workstations for remote working, a bookable meeting room that doubles as a movie room plus a basement car park. The flats will be heated by a biomass district heating system.

Clegg Construction contract manager Stephen Brown said: “This project is also set to be really interesting to build. It’s located on a difficult site, with the topography requiring significant retaining structures to be constructed, as well as building out the underground car park. However, we’re always up for a challenge and the team is really enjoying pushing forwards and seeing progress begin.”

Rise Homes chief executive Nigel Rawlings said: “Clegg Construction has a proven track record of working on high quality residential schemes.”

Construction work is expected to complete in early 2023.
