The University of Sheffield AMRC expand into the North West

We are a leading provider of Quality Site Inspection services providing Clerk of Works and NEC Supervisor services, as well as Technical Reviews and Condition Surveys, for Construction projects across most sectors throughout the UK.

Independent construction and property consultancy, Gardiner & Theobald, who we have worked with for over a decade, have recently appointed us to provide Clerk of Works services for the creation of The University of Sheffield’s dedicated Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) in the North West of England, to oversee the quality monitoring and reporting on-site.

The AMRC research centre will be constructed at the heart of the Samlesbury Aerospace Enterprise Zone, with an aim of extending their footprint into the North West’s advanced manufacturing region. A £20m grant from Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Growth Deal will be used to build and equip the 4,500m2 applied research centre, which will accelerate and demonstrate innovative technologies, tools and techniques.

Focusing on new and emerging market opportunities, Samlesbury will be a leading centre for world-class research businesses and supply chain manufacturers, developing cutting edge technologies and advanced manufacturing processes.

“We are excited to be part of the University of Sheffield AMRC North West project overseeing the quality aspects of the build. The project, which forms part of a larger initiative to offer world-class facilities to in the North West, in particular Lancashire, will boost their reputation as one of the UK’s most innovative regions for advanced manufacturing. We are delighted to be working on-site providing quality monitoring and reporting, being the ‘eyes and ears’ on-site to ensure that the project meets quality specification and requirements.”
