Completion of University of Nottingham’s Advanced Manufacturing Building

Bond Bryan are delighted with the successful completion of the University of Nottingham’s Advanced Manufacturing Building.

Bond Bryan worked in partnership with the University of Nottingham to expand their Faculty of Engineering and reflect their position as a beacon within manufacturing research. This new facility will host several world-leading research groups, accommodating some of the most advanced manufacturing technologies related to automation, precision manufacturing, 3D printing and light weight composite materials.

The 9,000m2 state-of-the art building on Derby Road provides a new south entrance to the University’s Jubilee Campus.

Chris Jagger, Chief Estates and Facilities Officer at the University of Nottingham, said: “This pioneering project delivers a fantastic addition to the University’s portfolio of unique and ground-breaking buildings and it further enhances the continued growth of our Jubilee Campus. The project has also included a replacement new building for the 62nd Wollaton Park Scout Group which will also provide facilities for the local community.”

Project Architect, James Woodhouse commented: “This project has been a fantastic team effort and a joy to see it come to fruition. We are all thrilled with the result and believe this will help to shape the future of the UK manufacturing sector.”

Bond Bryan’s success in the region includes the RIBA-shortlisted Nottingham University Academy of Science and Technology (NUAST) and the University of Nottingham Ingenuity Centre – an iconic three-storey building based at the University Innovation Park (UNIP).

The project team includes: project managers Turner & Townsend, architects Bond Bryan, engineers Arup, cost managers Currie & Brown (previously Sweett) and contractors GF Tomlinson.
