The International Manufacturing Centre (IMC) houses manufacturing, technology, teaching and research facilities arranged in two spine wings, flanking a four-storey high Engineering Hall.

International Manufacturing Centre

The highly successful WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group) had developed to a size where it needed a new building of its own. Part-funded through the ERDF, IMC was the first building in a new sector of the University of Warwick. 

The dramatic prow over the entry is designed to impress visitors. It contains a three-storey atrium under the top floor Board Room, whose terrace overlooks the campus. This entrance is at one end of the four-storey concrete-framed teaching block with an oval 200-seat raked auditorium set into the ground floor. 

The main teaching block has two floors of offices on top of two floors of lecture theatres and computer laboratories.

The 30m x 60m naturally-lit steel-framed Engineering Hall is 14.5m high with a 5-ton travelling gantry across its central 20m span, and flanked by two 7m high aisles.

IMC is connected to two existing engineering buildings with a light glazed pedestrian bridge spanning 32m across University Road. The bridge was designed to be erected in one evening to avoid disruption to this main road through the University.
