Partnership Projects

Sheffield Family Hearing Centre

Centreland and joint venture partner, M.J. Gleeson Group plc, were selected to design, build, finance and operate a new family hearing centre for Her Majesty's Courts Service. One of the first stand-alone family centres procured under the Private Finance Initiative (PFI) the facility in the heart of Sheffield was completed to a fully fitted specification. Successful delivery of this turnkey scheme was achieved after overcoming a complex legal process and a number of physical difficulties including archaeological and infrastructure issues. Constructed to a 'very good' Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) rating the project is supported financially through the commercial development of surplus land. The joint venture company was responsible for operating the building for 25 years subject to a performance measurement and bench marking system.

The Centreland team remained in place as co-ordinators throughout the bid, design, build and operate phases in order to maintain continuity and a close working relationship with the end users to ensure the successful delivery of this highly specialised public building.
