The National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC) is a new industrially led joint initiative between TWI, lead academic partner Brunel University, alongside the University of Manchester, the University of Cambridge and a number of leading industrial partners.
The initiative is funded by industry and by grants from the Regional Growth Fund (RGF) and Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). Funding is available in the period up to 31.3.2015 to assist in establishing a new facility at the TWI site in Abington, Cambridge and to purchase equipment to be used in the centre. All equipment must be accepted on the Abington site by the end of December 2014 at the latest.
There will be 3 new large buildings at Granta Park. These buildings are in addition to 2 large buildings currently in place, plus other smaller areas of office space that will be redeployed. These buildings will provide for a mix of operational needs, including office, university, research, training, conference, hospitality and industrial services.
TWI Ltd staff levels are currently around 850 globally, with 45-50 % of these located within the UK. Future growth anticipates staff numbers exceeding 1000 by 2018.
It is necessary that the new buildings are fitted-out with robust and resilient audio and video equipment, being ready for use by December 2014 at the very latest. The result of the tender will be the delivery, installation and configuration of the AV equipment and on-going support.
All communication regarding this tender should be made through the TWI Ltd In-Tend system via the correspondence functionality.
