Wolfson Bulk Solids Handling Laboratory

The Wolfson Bulk Solids Handling Laboratory houses testing equipment for the steady state transmission of particle materials passed under pressure through pipe work.

Listed Building Consent was granted for the large structure, which accommodates silos, a control room and other staff facilities, adjacent to a row of listed buildings along the campus’ Central Avenue. It is a single volume carefully wrapped within a sinusoidal metal and translucent cladding. An analysis of sight lines, and careful detailing, ensures the visual impact of the new building is kept to a minimum.
