News: Rotherham building in line for national green award


The Rolls Royce Factory of the Future, part of the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham, has been shortlisted for a national award. The Estates Gazette Green Awards have been established to highlight and reward excellence in sustainable development and raise environmental awareness. The AMRC has set new standards for sustainable manufacturing facilities worldwide and has the highest BREEAM rating for any building of its kind. It combines leading-edge sustainable design and materials with high-end facilities for two of the world’s leading manufacturers, Boeing and Rolls Royce, as well as a globally-respected research centre. The AMRC was designed by Bond Bryan to be a world first in terms of design, complementing the work carried out in the building which is leading the way for manufacturing as a whole. This is a contemporary design putting paid to the belief that low carbon energy and sustainability cannot sit comfortably in commercial industrial environments. Instead of an Awards ceremony the winners will be announced on the website on November 22 to minimise carbon footprints.
