Stephen George + Partners unveils state-of-the art production facility in Leicester
Stephen George + Partners has recently completed a £7.7million, 5894.9m2 new build warehouse, factory and office building on a vacant 4.5-acre plot at the Watermead Business Park, Syston, near Leicester.
The purpose-built facility, for Albert Browne, a wholly owned subsidiary of US-based STERIS Corporation, will showcase the company’s product quality and high level of quality assurance in its production methods, as well as merging staff and processes from two sites whilst allowing space for any potential future expansion.
Says Ian Yallop, Chairman of SGP: “Working alongside Albert Browne and the STERIS Corporation, SGP has designed a flexible, high-quality production facility whose refined design delivers a contemporary building that meets the clients’ current and future needs.”
The main production and storage building is contained by 3 curved roofs, with the overall mass broken down by colour changes and splayed design features, whilst the lower block contains the office and R&D functions. The entrance is emphasised by a blue framed double height glazing feature. The building forms an animated ‘gateway’ into the city and responding to glimpsed view from the A607.
Albert Browne Ltd is the world leader in decontamination and sterilization monitoring systems all of which are designed and manufactured and distributed from Leicester.
