The robotics centre project has seen us prepare design proposals and obtain planning permission for a new build research and development space within the wider, 5plus designed, Salford Crescent and University masterplan. The ‘Centre of Excellence’ will sit within the university’s new high-tech ‘innovation district’.

The aim of the centre is to provide a facility for small and medium sized companies in the Greater Manchester area to develop their skills, improve their business and production processes, digital technologies, products and services using robotics and automation.

Our proposals have been designed in response to a prescriptive brief and complex equipment requirements which will allow the building to support this aspiration whilst regenerating a brownfield site and meeting sustainability targets.
