Aerospace Integrated Research Centre, Cranfield University

The AIRC, a landmark building delivered in partnership with Rolls-Royce and Airbus, will change the future design of aircraft. The three-storey building includes open laboratory space with a 40m clear span capable of housing large airframe integration projects.

Other areas include presentation and visualisation spaces alongside state-of-the-art simulation facilities. Researchers and engineers from Cranfield and its partner companies now work closely together in an open-plan office environment.
