Design Prototyping and Testing Centre Opens for Business

Sheffield University’s latest building at its Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) has been handed over.

Bond Bryan Architects’ Design Prototyping Testing Centre provides engineering design and prototyping expertise to help UK manufacturers develop innovative high-value products in such industries as aerospace.

With a construction cost of £4.3 million, the two-storey centre is a mix of regular scaled research spaces and double-height workshop space.  Externally the centre uses Kalwall, Alucobond and masonry.

It is designed to achieve a BREEAM rating of “very good” being linked to the centre’s existing ground source heat pumps and wind turbine systems.

Darren Southgate, Bond Bryan Director said, “This is the latest development at the Advanced Manufacturing Campus, a world leading, globally recognised centre of manufacturing excellence”.
