News: AMRC in line for structural award


The Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre in Rotherham has been shortlisted in the 2009 Structural Awards by the The Institution of Structural Engineers.

Design Engineers, Buro Happold, worked up structural designs for the Rolls-Royce Factory of the Future as one of the country's first large carbon neutral buildings, capable of generating its entire annual energy consumption.

The AMRC with Boeing is a £45 million partnership of the University of Sheffield and over 40 partner companies based at the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham.

The building houses a mixture of flexible workshop space, laboratories and office space where research, design, manufacture and study can support the innovative work in manufacturing techniques applied to aircraft components.

Established in 1968, the Structural Awards recognise and reward the work of the world's most talented structural designers, their indispensable contribution to the built environment and showcase projects that lead the industry's development.

The AMRC is in the Industrial or Process Structures catergory with the Bodegas Protos Winery in Valledolid, Spain and the The Lakeside Energy from Waste (EfW) plant at Colnbrook near Slough.
