Factory of the future







Air Leakage

0.2-0.25m3/m3/hr per Pa


Appointed by architect Bond Bryan and main contractor ISG, we assisted in the development of an Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) in South Yorkshire, described as a `Factory of the Future´.

Project Spec

The main challenge was to construct a clean precision engineering facility where the walls and ceilings would achieve an air leakage of not more than an average of 0.2 – 0.25 m3/m2/hr per Pa and a need to maintain a pressure of 20Pa, whilst maintaining complete flexibility to incorporate planned and future services. By working closely with the architect and ISG, we accomplished an optimal design flexibility to allow the lighting and duct apertures together with other services to be factory formed in the walls and ceilings which in some areas had heights of over six meters.


We used our expertise in controlled environment clean rooms to design and develop a range of bespoke steel partitioning solutions for the AMRC’s Composite Centre. As part of a major investment programme supported by the European Regional Development Fund, the 1800sq metre expansion featured state of the art interior construction methods enabling a fast track programme to be easily implemented.
