Ground Breaking at Béton House, Sheffield

Speech from David Campbell

Alumno and Kier were pleased to host a ceremony to celebrate work to date on Phase 3 of the Park Hill project. Alumno Managing Director along with John O’Callagham of Kier, welcomed guests and stakeholders. Alumno, Urban Splash, S1 Artspace, Hallam University, University of Sheffield and Sheffield Council were invited to place items in a time capsule which will be buried on the site. Whoever opens the capsule in years to come will find a lot of history about this iconic site from these various parties.
