The firm building Sheffield's new retail quarter has produced a 3D video of the construction process.

BAM Construct UK tweeted the animation of the first 20 weeks of the massive project, which will eventually be a six-storey office block with ground floor shops and restaurants.

The firm is currently preparing the site between Furnival Gate, Pinstone Street and Wellington Street where the Grosvenor House Hotel once stood.

The animation shows the start of the construction process, which should be complete by summer 2019.

Sheffield Council has put up signs and artwork on the border of the site to give residents and visitors an idea of what the new building will be like.

A planning application for the second phase of the retail quarter, which will involve the buildings between the new office block and Barker's Pool, has yet to be submitted.
