Moving Spaces for Sheffield Transport Centre
Thinking Space Systems has just completed the relocation of Sheffield City Council’s Urban Transport Centre.
Having completed the original control room in 2008, a redevelopment of the site at Carbrook meant that the control room had to be relocated across the city to Sheffield Town Hall, a grade 1 listed building. Thinking Space were awarded the contract, by competitive tender, to move the existing consoles to the new location and undertake a complete fit out of an empty office in the town hall and bring up to control room standards. In addition, a brand new Evolution media wall was manufactured and in partnership with Eyevis, a video wall system was created.
As well as the challenge of carrying out work in a listed building, the project needed to be completed within tight timescales and whilst the building was operational. With negligible work needed to the consoles being eight years old, the aluminium build system offered by Thinking Space consoles ensured that the consoles were broken down, transported and re-assembled on site quickly and efficiently, giving cost savings and promoting recycling benefits to the client.
