The Welding Institute

Eric Parry Architects was commissioned to design the Masterplan for Granta Park in the mid 1990s by the then owner MEPC. Throughout the subsequent 16 years the site has been transformed from arable farmland into the highly successful science park it is today.

Following the recent completion of a restructuring of the ownership of Granta Park, The Welding Institute have been able to transform their site and create the accommodation suited to their needs.

Three new buildings house amenity operations, a NSIRC education facility and an engineering hall including heavy and light engineering laboratories and office accommodation.
