Renfrewshire factory of the future secures planning consent
March 6 2020
HLM Architects have obtained planning permission to construct a National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NIMS) at the Netherton Campus in Renfrewshire to assist industry and engineering firms wishing to innovate and expand.
The distinctive heather-toned carbon-neutral facility will cover an area around 1.5 times the size of Hampden football pitch and employ fully digitalized machinery as well as an on-site skills academy.
Operated by the University of Strathclyde the plant will provide industry, academia and the public sector to collaborate on research and development.
NMIS design team lead Ross Barrett said: “This new facility will provide an inspiring and supportive environment for manufacturing firms in Scotland to thrive. It not only offers a variety of different spaces and environments for learning, collaboration and innovation but is also a landmark in its architecture and an exemplar in carbon-neutral design.”
Enabling works are already underway at the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District to pave the way for the development.
