Advanced Forming & Assembly Facility

The Advanced Forming and Assembly Facility (AFAF) is located at the heart of the advanced manufacturing site. Whilst initially challenging to accommodate, the proposed development houses the manufacturing processes. This challenge informed the design and performance of the envelope and structure. Whilst the consultant team became more involved in the coordination and integration of the solutions, the project was ultimately successfully delivered.

The design sets a new standard for quality on the site whilst working within the client’s established budget parameters, creating a ‘landmark’ building on a site that is otherwise featureless.
