Cranfield’s AIRC scoops win at LABC Grand Finals

The £35m Aerospace Integration Research Centre was rewarded in the Best Large Commercial Project category

CPMG Architects’ multi-award-winning project – the Aerospace Integration Research Centre (AIRC) at Cranfield University – has scooped another award at the LABC Grand Finals.

The design team was recognised in the Best Large Commercial Project award category for its work in delivering the £35m centre.

Nick Gregory, director for CPMG, said: “Cranfield University’s Aerospace Integration Research Centre is a flagship scheme that we are incredibly proud of. The AIRC has had a positive impact on the future of aircraft design and we are delighted to have been a part of the team that has made this scheme so successful.”

Tracy Flynn, development manager at Cranfield University said: “We have enjoyed working with CPMG in developing this unique building and giving it such personality. I, the faculty, and the students, now have a building which we are proud to say has shaped aerospace research and training.”

Nick added: “The success of the AIRC Centre has led to us working further with Cranfield University as they make plans to expand their estate with a new agri-informatics building and a water sciences building.”
