The Nuclear AMRC operates research, production and business support facilities in South Yorkshire and other key regions.
Our core facility is an 8,000 sq m research factory on the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP), on the boundary of Sheffield and Rotherham, where we sit alongside other University of Sheffield centres including the AMRC, Castings Technology International, AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre and nearby AMRC Training Centre. See our contact page for full address and directions.
The Nuclear AMRC is based around an open-plan 5,000 sq m workshop, containing over £35 million worth of state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment tailored for nuclear industry applications. The building acts as a research factory for innovative and optimised processes in machining, welding, inspection and other key areas of large-scale manufacturing technology. For detailed information about our workshop resources, download the Nuclear AMRC equipment & capability directory (5MB pdf).
The building also features accommodation over three stories, including laboratory and technical support space, virtual reality facilities, open-plan offices and secure meeting rooms.
The building was designed by Bond Bryan Architects to BREEAM Excellent environmental standards.
Work at the Nuclear AMRC focuses on metals engineering and does not involve nuclear critical aspects such as fuels or other radioactive materials. We are committed to environmental sustainability, certified to ISO 14001 for environmental management, and follow the AMRC environmental policy (pdf). We are also certified to ISO 9001 for quality management.
