The Advanced Manufacturing Park is home to a range of different high profile and world-class employers such as Boeing and Rolls Royce. The University of Sheffield is thought to be the centre of advanced manufacturing in the UK. The construction programme took 26 weeks and allowed the design team to value engineer a wide range of aspects of the finishes in order to make sure that the high-quality expectations of the employer are met while also remaining within the planned budget.
The Sir Henry Royce Institute features three units and is the second phase of the new Advanced Manufacturing Research Campus 2 under development by the University of Sheffield. The construction project is taking place in order to make the most of the campus boulevard and will engage building users and passers-by by sowing their workshop activities in picture frame elevations. The construction work for this project began at the start of October last year and all three of the units that form the development by JF Finnegan are expected to be complete in March next year.
