Commenting on each of the winners, the judges noted:
"The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing and Research Centre North West really stood out with its triple-height atrium which creates a focal point, where occupiers can interact and exchange ideas. This ‘social heart’ space overlooks the workshop, where these ideas will inform innovative research into new manufacturing processes. The judges felt that flexibility was at the core of the design approach, with working spaces easily reconfigured as classrooms, seminar rooms or offices. The workshop offers varying zones which can be adapted for different tasks, accommodated through both the architectural and services design."
We are delighted that AMRC NW has been recognised for pushing the boundaries of workplace/ research hybrid facility design; congratulations to the whole team!
