Brunel University London - Advanced Metals Processing Centre OpensJuly 2018
Following the successful completion of the Brunel Centre for Advanced Solidification Technology (BCAST) Advanced Metals Casting Centre, Pascall+Watson have designed and delivered the new state-of-the-art Advanced Metals Processing Centre.
Located within the Uxbridge campus’s science park, the 1,500m2 laboratory supports the UK manufacturing sector by conducting world class academic research and industrial development in the processing of high performance aluminium and magnesium alloys for automotive applications.
The scheme was developed via regular collaborative workshops with academic and industrial partner stakeholders to establish the unique solution for this complex facility.
Our work with BCAST has assisted the university in securing funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, Innovate UK, the Higher Education Funding Council for England and industrial partners, and is part of our ongoing contribution to the development of their campus.
Dr Ian Stone, BCAST Director of Operations, states "Pascall+Watson took care to understand the requirements of our complex equipment and designed a building that both met those requirements for the here and now, and provided future proofing to meet the changing needs of a research environment”
