A state of the art building by Trebor Developments and renowned architecture practice Corstorphine + Wright has enabled global aerospace product manufacturer, UTC Aerospace to remain as the anchor tenant at the Malvern Hills Science Park (MHSP), whilst freeing up office space for the region’s SMEs.
UTC Aerospace Systems develops and manufactures intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance technologies from its Malvern base and has grown exponentially over the last decade prompting the need for a new home.
The new 30,000 sq ft building has catered for the expansion of UTC Aerospace Systems at MHSP allowing the firm to relocate from its current multiple buildings on the site and continue its expansion. In addition a number of new small to medium businesses could be accommodated in UTC Aerospace Systems’ former building delivering up to 150 new jobs to the region.
The ground floor of the new L shaped block is home to UTC Aerospace Systems’ purpose built laboratory and assembly space which has been designed to allow for continually changing workbench configurations in line with the manufacturer’s requirements to be adaptable for quick commissions. To this end the laboratory has been scaled to accommodate a large container unit to allow for assignments to be worked upon in a controlled environment.
