The purpose-built facility, for Albert Browne Ltd, 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.


The facility responds to the existing buildings by using a contemporary
form with large areas of glazing and a simple neutral colour palette.

Three interlocking forms with asymmetric curved roofs contain the main production and storage building whilst a lower block contains the office and R&D functions. A change in colour on each block helps to break down the overall mass, forming an animated ‘gateway’ into the city and responding to glimpsed views from the A607. The entrances are emphasised by a two storey blue framed glazed structure containing reception and meeting rooms.
