About this event

The ICE EM G&S Committee invite you to this exciting opportunity to visit a pioneering manufacturing facility designed to help engineer the UK’s future. Laing O’Rourke’s Explore Industrial Park (EIP) is the most automated concrete products facility in Europe, producing state of the art structures using automated manufacturing techniques.

This facility has produced key components for some iconic buildings and infrastructure, including Two Fifty-One in Southwark, Imperial College’s residential towers at White City and the high-end Clarges residences in Mayfair. Additionally, they have produced floors, walls, columns and platforms for projects including Crossrail and Manchester Airport.

The tour will last around 3-4 hours, this includes:

  • A Presentation on EIP
  • Full Factory Tour
  • A Visit to an Onsite Prototype House and Apartment
  • A Visit to a GRC Crossrail Mock Up
