The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS)

The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) is a ground-breaking new project, creating a healthy workplace for people to come together from across the public, academic and private sectors.

Operated by the University of Strathclyde and based next to Glasgow airport, this flagship building will encourage innovation.

Deploying our expertise, OFR has worked as part of a design team, supporting the client in its quest to deliver low-carbon and sustainability-focussed designs. Features include an exposed timber glulam frame, internal tree planting and a unique internal green wall as well as large-scale rooftop solar panels, a state-of-the-art low carbon district heating network and a rainwater harvesting system.
