SWANSEA UNIVERSITY
IMPACT BUILDING


  • THE IMPACT BUILDING FOR SWANSEA UNIVERSITY WILL PROVIDE A WORLD CLASS FACILITY FOR MATERIALS RESEARCH THAT WILL BE A COLLABORATION BETWEEN INDUSTRY AND ACADEMIA, ATTRACTING WORLD CLASS TALENT AND INVESTMENT INTO NEW RESEARCH PROJECTS.

  • Rigorous logical principles are emphasised throughout the design. The building is divided into three distinct but connected areas - a research office building, a laboratory and a workshop linked via an  atrium. The integration of sustainable technologies, including thermal solar collectors, photovoltaic panels and the living wall, are significant in minimising the building’s greenhouse gas emissions and impact on the local and global environment, as well as increasing the biodiversity of the site. The building is designed to achieve the rating of BREEAM Excellent.

  • The new development will serve as a showcase building located at the main entrance to the site. The building represents a transition between research and making, science and engineering. The new building faces the Computational Foundry building, also designed by AHR, located on the opposite site of a shared amenity courtyard. 

    Research activities will be focused on promoting and supporting cross-disciplinary fertilisation of ideas under five core research themes:
    • Future Manufacturing Technologies
    • Next Generation Materials Property Measurement
    • Advanced Structural Mechanics
    • Vapour Deposition Cluster
    • Metals Technology Centre
