The Advanced Manufacturing Building, located on the campus of the University of Nottingham, is complete.

The £30mn (US$42.7mn) facility will focus high-tech and innovative 3D printing and robotics research, as it targets manufacturing of the future.

The site will become a global hub for the leading minds working on advanced technology, as it hosts meetings, seminars, and lectures.

The manufacturing building will work with industry to provide engineers, and will become the flagship Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre.

“This pioneering project delivers a fantastic addition to the university’s portfolio of unique and ground-breaking buildings and it further enhances the continued growth of our Jubilee Campus,” stated Chris Jagger, Chief Estates and Facilities Officer.

“The project has also included a replacement new building for the 62nd Wollaton Park Scout Group, which will also provide facilities for the local community.”

The facility also aims to become a hub for those on its campus – working as classrooms, laboratories, and workshops for students and teachers.

“The new institute will align with the Government’s desire for a new industrial strategy, in key sectors such as advanced manufacturing, and with the ambitions of D2N2’s own programmes; to enable area companies to innovate, create new products and grow,” commented Sajeeda Rose, Senior Manager for Growth Deals and Capital Programmes.
