The new residential project ‘Home at St Wilfrid’s’ moved one step nearer its completion date when Henry Boot Construction Ltd held a ‘Topping Out Ceremony’ on the roof of the new building.

Kevin Bradley, Director of St Wilfrid’s, whose inspiration began the building project said, “The lads from Henry Boot Construction have made our dream come true.  They have carried out the build in a professional and expert manner, which has been tempered with good humour, cooperation and great team spirit.”

‘Home at St Wilfrid’s’ will provide 20 brand new apartments for homeless and vulnerable people who will stay for up to two years whilst attending the Centre to learn the skills they will need to enable them to live independently.

The project will be a flagship for Sheffield and could become a model for the rest of society.
