Electric Works, Sheffield

In 2007, Creative Space Management was appointed by Sheffield City Council (following a competitive dialogue process), to manage a 12 year contract to operate The Hub Building at Sheffield Digital Campus. This building is now called Electric Works and opened in March 2009. This building is 5000 sq m and provides grow-on space for creative and digital enterprises from the Cultural Industries Quarter and the wider city-region. Office spaces are let on a range of flexible licences and traditional leases. The building also includes conferencing facilities for up to 200 people. Creative Space Management were responsible for detailed market testing, design specification, fit-out contract specification and the full business planning and the operation and facilities management of the building. The Creative Space team were awarded the 2009 British Institute for Facilities Management award for Innovation in respect of Electric Works. Despite opening at the beginning of the recession, the property is now 70% let and has a community of some 275 people based there including one of the fastest growth businesses in the north of England, WanDisco, who recently floated on AIM.
