Those in the running include ‘King Ted’s’ school in Broomhill, a technical college, a terraced home and a training centre.

Nick Beecroft, operating director for HLM Architects, which has two nominees, said: “King Edward VII Upper School is a well known historical building in the city and what we have done is a very sensitive addition.

“The UTC meanwhile was one of the first of its kind in the country. Its design connects old and new.”

RIBA Yorkshire’s Emma England said: “Good building design plays a vital role in the creation of successful places. We are proud to work with Sheffield Civic Trust on this, as Sheffield has some of the best contemporary architecture in the region.”
