Manufacturing News

The proposed design of Bradfield City Centre’s Second Building has been released for public exhibition, covering 12,000 square metres over three levels and including stage two of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF.)

In a statement on Tuesday, the NSW government’s Western Parkland City Authority agency said the Second Building will have space to accommodate “industry tenants, an advanced manufacturing hall, research laboratory facilities including cleanrooms, and publicly accessible greenspace.”

“Second Building will be a thriving, global economic hub, and a place for the future of advanced manufacturing in Western Sydney,” said Western Parkland City Authority Chair, Jennifer Westacott, in a statement, adding that it is expected to employ over 400 jobs for engineers, researchers, support staff and businesses once complete.

“The AMRF is a concept centred around collaboration and in keeping with that principle, Second Building will be a catalyst for a new innovation ecosystem at Bradfield City Centre.”

According to the statement, the building will “focus on micro-electronics and semi-conductor packaging”. It is expected to be finished by 2026, and will be opposite the Bradfield City Centre’s First Building.

The First Building houses the first stage of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility, which is scheduled to open mid-2024”. The first sod was turned in September 2022.

The design for the second building – by Architectus in collaboration with Aileen Sage Architects and Jacobs – is on exhibition until June 17 via the NSW Planning Portal. 

Subject to approvals, construction is expected to begin next year and be completed by 2026.

Editor’s note: The AMRF was a sponsor of @AuManufacturing’s Australia’s 50 Most Innovative Manufacturers campaign.
