Leeds firm wins Yorkshire Advanced Manufacturing Park engineering contract

Leeds engineers RWO has won an undisclosed six figure contract to support the latest phase of development at a state-of-the-art manufacturing centre in South Yorkshire.

R-Evolution phase 4 is part of the 150-acre Advanced Manufacturing Park, which is being developed on Government Enterprise Zone status land off  M1 Junction 33 near Rotherham, by land and property regeneration specialist Harworth Group. Eventually, more than two million sq. ft. of industrial space will be created there, generating an estimated 4,000 new manufacturing jobs on a site that is already home for Rolls Royce, Boeing, McLaren Automotive and the UK Atomic Energy Authority.

Park Place-based RWO will supply civil and structural engineering services to support the build of three buildings that will provide 93,000 sq. ft. of office and industrial workspace. A key feature of the plans will see design and construction to the highest BREAM environmental and sustainability standards, including EV charging points, rainwater harvesting and an energy efficient heating and cooling system.

This work comes as RWO, currently employing 30 people across its two offices and targeting revenues in excess of £3m in the next 12 months, is seeing strong demand for its engineering services from across the region’s commercial property development sector.

Head of RWO’s Leeds office Andrew Fairburn, who is working closely with Wakefield-based architects The Harris Partnership on the scheme, said: “This is another major project for us, reflecting our ability to maintain a strategic view of investment projects from an engineering perspective  while delivering high calibre infrastructure and detailed design work for clients.

“We are continuing to develop our commercial offering and this latest success with Harworth comes at a time when we will see further growth over the next 18 months as we continue to develop and secure new regional and national work.”

R-Evolution is a key development at one of the most important new manufacturing centres in the North of England, said Robert Cole, project manager at Harworth Group. He added: “RWO, who continue to impress with their technical experience, are an important partner. Their expertise and insight will ensure this phase of our plans are delivered on time and to the highest standards as progress of the overall site continues apace.”
