BT moves into Sheffield Digital Campus

The communications giant has taken possession of its new South Yorkshire base, the seven-storey 65,000 sq ft Endeavour building.

Workers from across the company have begun moving into the building, which will accommodate up to 1,000 employees.

Staff based at Endeavour will include those from its consumer and business divisions, while it will also become the primary base for employees from Sheffield-founded company Plusnet, which has been part of BT Group since 2006.

BT announced its intentions to create a hub at the building, close to Sheffield station, last year, and handover was achieved in August. Scarborough Group was the developer, GMI the contractor and CJCT the architect.

The investment forms part of BT’s Better Workplace programme, which has also seen landmark moves in places such as Bristol and Salford, where it committed to ECF’s New Bailey.

The group’s Doncaster contact centre underwent a major overhaul in 2021, with 350 new jobs created at the site.

Brent Mathews, property director at BT Group, said: “Sheffield is an important strategic location for BT Group, and opening this office in the heart of the city allows us to provide a state-of-the-art building for our colleagues based here.

“Our Better Workplace Programme was designed to ensure our colleagues work in future-fit buildings they can be proud of and Endeavour embodies that perfectly.

“While the past few years have seen changes to work patterns and increased flexibility, offices remain an integral part of our way of working, allowing us to bring colleagues together to collaborate, and to support economic growth in our key locations.”
