Our landmark Rolls-Royce Factory of the Future building is a 6400 sq. m facility including workshop, laboratory, office and conference space. The building was opened in 2008 with funding from ERDF and industrial partners, and extended in 2012.
The main open-plan workshop is focused on machining research, housing an array of state-of-the-art machining centres and other manufacturing equipment – see the research group pages for more detail. The workshop is designed to allow partner companies to develop and trial new technologies and processes before introducing them to their own factories.
