Norwoods market leading range of partitioning solutions have been specified by architect Bond Bryan in conjunction with main contractor ISG for the new 1800 sq m extension to the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).
The new Factory of the Future in South Yorkshire, which will house AMRCs expanded Composite Centre, is due for completion in Spring 2012 and is part of a major investment programme by the University of Sheffield to create a world-leading hub for advanced engineering research. The Composite Centre extension is supported by the European Regional Development Fund.
As part of the project, Norwood worked in partnership with the architects and ISG to design and develop a range of bespoke steel partitioning solutions for the centres controlled environment and three high specification clean rooms.
John Gittins, ISGs regional managing director commented: The specification for this state-of-the-art research facility has driven our search for best of breed solutions that deliver to exacting standards. Any steel partitioning solution would need to meet the demanding performance requirements of the facilitys controlled environment and clean rooms, as well as delivering efficiencies during the installation process. Norwoods bespoke solution achieved both requirements.
