Rolls-Royce Nelson, Barnoldswick

A new facility of 5,000 sqm for Rolls-Royce at the Barnoldswick site near Burnley in Lancashire, the Company has occupied land and buildings in Barnoldswick for over 70 years. The building houses workshops and ancillary accommodation for the manufacture of aircraft engine turbine blades, thus expanding Roll-Royce’s capability to support gas turbine aero engine assembly in Derby and Bristol.

In common with other CPMG projects for Rolls-Royce the building is fully compliant with their briefing documentation, its house design style clad and brand criteria with ppc aluminium panels and distinctive curved roofs.

Additional cost is incurred as it is necessary to remove a large earth mound from the site and a gabion-wall structure will need to be constructed to retain the embankment to the adjacent Leeds and Liverpool Canal.
