FANUC UK

FANUC, one of the world’s leading global manufacturers of automation and industrial robotic solutions required a new UK headquarters.

The proposed scheme was an advanced building located at Ansty Park, Coventry.

Challenge
SVM BSD was asked to develop the RIBA Stage 3 design to detailed level. With a predetermined structure already in place SVM BSD was required to produce a design strategy that would align with the finalised steel model.

A large proportion of the services were positioned at high level, which meant the location of ductwork, air conditioning units and electrical services were subject to spatial issues due to limited ceiling void space. It was also essential that SVM BSD provided a design solution that would allow easy maintenance access to services for the 60,000 sq ft workshop.

Solution
SVM BSD used Revit MEP, for co-ordination purposes, to reduce any potential clashes with the high level services. To achieve this, SVM BSD imported the structural engineers Revit model into its own model to enable coordination with the existing steel structure.

In addition to standard UK power levels, two transformers were installed to cater for two different voltages; this would accommodate the three phase voltage levels, used in Japan, for commercial/industrial facilities. SVM BSD developed its electrical design strategy to serve the 200v levels in order for FANUC to use its existing machinery.

The Outcome
A brand new 107,000 sq ft facility, which comprises of 56,000 sq ft of design, manufacturing and training facilities, 43,000 sq ft of offices and a 8,000 sq ft showroom area. The new facility will enable FANUC to expand its team and provide quality levels of manufacturing excellence.

Within the commercial offices sector, cost, time, and quality are all still fundamentally important factors that have to be carefully balanced. This is coupled with the modern workspace need to support personal development, reduce stress, and have a positive impact on health.

From complex new buildings to detailed, refurbishments, we are perfectly equipped with advanced skills, including the latest BIM capabilities, to drive a project forward to a successful and timely completion.

Future design will require a multi-facetted effort, one that reaches across the tools and technology that now need to be used to communicate policies. High tech ideas and social change, will create smart work environments that boost wellbeing, productivity and collaboration.
