Work is progressing rapidly on Sheffield University’s new £81 million engineering department, The Diamond.

The building’s shiny exterior has started to be installed on the structure on Broad Lane and St George’s Terrace, on part of the site of the former Jessop Hospital.

The 19,500 square foot complex is due to open in September next year, creating around 400 permanent new jobs.

Planning permission was granted in 2012 despite thousands of objections.
