Building for the future

Construction of the new TWI Technology Centre at Granta Park is now well advanced with occupancy of the first phase scheduled for Spring 2002.

Set in the wooded grounds of Abington Hall and overlooking the lake, the 10 000m 2 building will contain state-of-the-art research facilities and business accommodation for some 300 staff. On completion, the project will enable TWI to improve even further the service given to members by:

  • Provision of a higher quality environment for staff and visitors
  • Increasing operational effectiveness
  • Increasing operational efficiency

TWI staff have made a significant contribution to the design development, working closely with the Bovis Lend Lease Pharmaceutical design team.

The facility will support the full range of TWI activities ranging from microjoining technology to destructive testing of large pipe specimens weighing many tonnes.
