ZenOffice (ZOBIE) to provide outstanding student accommodation

ZenOffice | Business Interiors & Exteriors (ZOBIE) are pleased to announce their latest office to residential conversion in Sheffield City centre. Working on behalf of Hartshead Group, the project involves conversion of the upper 6 floors of Watsons Chambers, Market Place, Sheffield S1 (formerly a business centre) to provide 61 self-contained studio flats and one twin bedroom unit.

The six month programme includes a complete remodelling of the building interior, new high performance windows and quality ensuite shower rooms to all studios. On completion in summer 2015 the building will be managed by Omnia Space as student accommodation providing an outstanding living environment in the city centre close to Sheffield Hallam City Campus.

Tony Marsden from Hartshead Group comments “the conversion of Watsons Chambers to residential accommodation gives us a great opportunity to improve the use of this building while at the same time we continue to run our successful business centre serviced offices from other buildings within the portfolio, we look forward to working with ZOBIE to deliver high quality studios”.

Les Kerr, Managing Director of ZenOffice, says “this is a significant win for the team and builds on our recent investment in the ZOBIE division. Our strong interior design and delivery capabilities make us a great partner for design and build schemes in a variety of sectors including accommodation, commercial and industrial refurbishment and fitting out projects.”
