At Sheffield Business Park we can provide serviced offices, self contained office buildings from starter units to corporate headquarters, and manufacturing and distribution units of any size and specification.
Together with other land owners, the two Sheffield Universities, and Sheffield and Rotherham Councils, we are creating the UK’s Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District; a nucleus of innovation, research and technology, designed for collaboration and rapid commercialisation.
It will be a catalyst for innovation led manufacturing across the Sheffield City Region (SCR) and Northern Powerhouse, attracting new international investors and generating an R&D revolution in the existing manufacturing base.
The University of Sheffield's Advanced Manufacturing Campus
The Advanced Manufacturing Campus will soon be home to three new engineering research centres designed to accelerate the region's advanced manufacturing capabilities. The new centres, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), will work with large businesses and SMEs to carry out initial research into new technologies which can be translated into industry-ready applications.
Sheffield Royce Translational Centre
The Sheffield Royce Translational Centre has received a £4million grant to help manufacturing companies in the Sheffield city region to adopt next generation technology to produce and process metal powders. The centre will work alongside another new Royce research centre at the University’s city campus, which will be focussed on early-stage research. The translational centre will then take these research discoveries and work with companies to help apply it to their manufacturing challenges. It will house global-leading academics and engineers along with industrial-grade machines to bridge the gap between research into metal powder and applications for sectors such as aerospace, automotive, energy and medical high-value manufacturing.
Laboratory for Verification and Validation (LVV)
A £3.2million grant has also been given for the creation of a new laboratory for testing large engineering structures under real life vibration conditions. The Laboratory for Verification and Validation (LVV), as it will be known, will capitalise on the University's globally recognised expertise in this field to offer radical improvement in product design, operation and lifetime for engineering structures. At present innovative new structures, for example plane parts or civil engineering structures such as bridges, make extensive use of computer models to test performance. The LVV will allow these structures to be tested under real-life conditions, most notably vibrations, in a world-leading facility.
Integrated Civil Infrastructure Research Centre (iCAIR)
Also being developed is the Integrated Civil Infrastructure Research Centre (iCAIR). This centre, which will receive £1.5million from the ERDF, will take the Sheffield city region’s expertise in advanced manufacturing and apply it to national civil engineering and infrastructure challenges. It will look at how big data, advanced materials and robotics can be used to increase innovation in the sector, which has historically been seen as slow to adopt new technologies.
