WELCOME TO SHEFFIELD

WELCOME TO THE UNITED KINGDOM 

THE FUTURE CITY CONCEPT

REDEVELOPMENT, MASSIVE INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT, SUPERB QUALITY OF LIFE

.

The latest (mid-2014 est.) population estimate for the City of Sheffield was 563,749 residents. This represents an increase of about 17,000 people, since the last census in 2001.

During the 21st. century the city has undergone a population growth way above that of the national average, and is projected to increase to over 600,000 by 2020.

Sheffield is about the size of a small city in the USA, but the differences are literally of cosmic proportion.

We make the latter comparison only because it is not possible to sugar coat stagnation and poverty.

The point being that Sheffield is the typical dream come true, because it is in the United Kingdom.

Typical, meaning; multi-billion pound investment, resulting in massive innovation across all sectors.

This is The Future City Concept but also as it impacts life here with rich, prosperous and multifaceted content.

CHINA TOWN

The 150 million pound New Era project reaches far beyond a simple Chinatown district. The project will contain a cosmopolitan feel incorporating all cultures, not just Chinese. This is a landmark project for an area of the city which will be transformed into a modern, cultural and enjoyable location for all. The investors from China are key business individuals and are very keen to promote and showcase the incubator we will create for their contacts in the Far East. New Era Square will offer a fantastic opportunity for any business looking to break into the Chinese market. It will also provide businesses in China with a UK market entry through Sheffield.

WESTON PARK CANCER HOSPITAL. CUTTING EDGE TREATMENT

The Varian TrueBeam STx uses a wide range of technical innovations including synchronised imaging, patient positioning and motion management to deliver high doses of radiation with pinpoint accuracy. Together with its ability to rotate so that cancerous tissue can be treated from any angle, a high definition multi-leaf device consisting of 120 computer controlled leaves of varying sizes and apertures sculpt the beam and match it to the 3D shape of the tumour. These leaves can move and change during treatment to target the tumour and minimise the dose to the surrounding healthy tissue.

Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre Capabilities

Additive Manufacturing – Castings – Composites – Design and Prototyping – Integrated Manufacturing – Manufacturing Intelligence – Medical – Metrology – Microscopy – Structural Testing – Virtual Reality **

Our Virtual Reality team develops virtual environments to support our programmes in; system design, assembly process development and training.

Virtual reality (VR) involves three-dimensional, interactive environments which simulate real or imagined worlds or systems.

At the AMRC, we use VR to develop virtual environments to support iterative product design, assembly process design and training, maintenance simulation, and remote support.

As well as developing components and systems for aerospace and other key industries, we also work on related areas such as factory layout simulation and optimisation.

Projects have included:

A maintenance program to benchmark against current best practice.

The development of factory layout scenarios with different equipment layouts.

A Rolls-Royce engine mock-up and fly-through which was presented to over 1000 people at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago in 2010.

A virtual ground breaking simulation which HM The Queen activated to officially launch the build of the new Nuclear AMRC facility.

Our Vision Sheffield City Region is growing and we want Meadowhall to evolve with it. Our vision is to create a fantastic visitor experience which complements the retail offer in Sheffield city centre and builds on the economic potential of the city.

Our proposed new Leisure Hall at Meadowhall, linked to the existing centre, will provide a great new place to spend time with friends and family, attract investment into the area, create jobs for local people and boost the regional economy. We’re excited about the future of Sheffield City Region and we hope you are too

MORE REGARDING : THE FACTORY 2050 ENTERPRISE ZONE

PLANNING

.

.

Plans to create a centre of excellence for advanced manufacturing at Sheffield Business Park have taken a big step forward as Sheffield City Council approved plans for Factory 2050 to be sited adjacent to Sheffield City Region Enterprise Zone.

The £43 million stunning circular building will combine a range of technologies, including advanced robotics, flexible automation, unmanned work-space, off-line printing in virtual environments linked to plug-and-play robotics, 3D printing from flexible automated systems, man-machine interfaces, and new programming and training tools.

The state of the art development will be built by the University of Sheffield, consolidating the success of their investment in the original Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre on the Advanced Manufacturing Park at Catcliffe. Since the first University building opened there in 2004, four further new buildings and two extensions have been added to provide a current total of around 30,000 sq. m of accommodation.

The new location – sited directly opposite the existing developments on the other side of the Parkway – will help to secure Sheffield’s place at the heart of advanced manufacturing in the UK and as a key player on the global stage.

Sheffield South East MP Clive Betts, whose constituency includes the Business Park, said he was fully behind the new development.

“Over the last decade we’ve seen the enormous impact of the University’s active involvement in advanced manufacturing, creating high quality jobs and hundreds of new opportunities for apprenticeships, as well as attracting some of the world’s best known aerospace and engineering companies to work and invest here.
