B&E Boys are pleased to announce the completion of the Canon Medical Arena project at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park. The handover of the project that began in July 2022 took place one week ahead of schedule.
The development project comprised of a brand new 2,500-seater basketball arena. The arena, now known as the Canon Medical Arena, will become the new home for the Sheffield Sharks and the Sheffield Hatters. Associated amenities and leisure facilities are also included.
One of the main aims of Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is to provide versatile facilities for the local community. As an example of this commitment, one end of the new building will accommodate a state-of-the-art Medical Diagnostic Centre. The facility houses AI-assisted CT and MRI scanners, Ultrasound and X-Ray equipment will be managed by LivingCare Limited. It also includes a minor surgery operating theatre. The centre provides valuable additional health provision for NHS and private patients across Sheffield.
The new building features a curved steel-framed structure and a rolled aluminium sheet roof. The Sheffield Green City initiative aims to make Sheffield a zero-carbon city by 2050. Indeed, in 2021, Sheffield was named the UK’s Greenest City in a report published by NatWest and the University of Southampton. All carbon emission metrics were calculated and verified by specialists. All CO2 emissions of the build will be offset by Canon Medical Systems UK, as part of its ESG: environmental, social and governance initiatives.
B&E Boys would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the team that worked on Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park renovation. The recent Considerate Construction Scheme (CCS) assessment was scored at an excellent 41/45. The Scheme is a voluntary assessment that uses a Code of Considerate Practice and provides transparency for construction companies and clients alike. It evaluates the impact that the construction will have on the local community, environment, and workforce. B&E Boys are particularly proud of the score that was awarded for the Respect for the Community section – an impressive 14/15. Notable mentions were made about the team’s on-site activities, engagement with the local community, social media support, and the contributions made towards the City of Sheffield Green City objectives.
In the Care of the Environment section, the team was given a score of 13/15. We estimate that 50% of our supply chain is now carbon neutral. All our hard landscaping is permeable with attenuation.
The final part of the CCS assessment focused on how we value our workforce. We are very pleased to say that we scored 14/15.
John Boys said, “Thank you to the team and subcontractors for all their efforts. We are proud to be involved in such a great project. Thanks also go out to all the associates who worked on the project: Canon Medical Systems UK, Mascot Management, Topping Engineers, Bond Bryan, and Parker Wilson. As well as a huge thanks to all the staff at Sheffield Sharks especially Sarah Backovic, Atiba Lyons, Yuri Matischen and Nick Montgomery.”
The successful completion of the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park project continues the company’s long record of working on projects in the sports and leisure sector.
