Advanced Blade Casting Facility
These high-tech manufacturing facilities are Rolls-Royce’s new Advanced Blade Casting Facility (ABCF) in Rotherham. At the heart of Yorkshire’s Advanced Manufacturing Park, the factory is one of a number of cutting edge industrial plants to locate in the Sheffield City Regional Enterprise Zone. Rolls-Royce asked BAM to deliver a flagship building reflecting Britain’s world-class capabilities in the aerospace sector. A gently curving roofline echoes the blades being manufactured inside. BAM used state-of-the-art 3D modelling software to design, plan and manage the development.
