FANUC, the world’s largest supplier of CNC controls, drives and industrial robots and a specialist for various intelligent machine tools, just completed its new R&D Engineering Center located just at the outskirts of Moscow in the beautiful campus of Skolkovo where high tech companies and research centres are located.

Astron Builder Stynergy completed the 6 700 m² new facilities. The complex built with the Astron building solutions includes three laboratories, an assembly production, office premises, training and service centers. The 2 300 m² production space will be occupied by equipment depot and the test area for injection molding, milling and EDM operations. The building is equipped with a 22 tons crane beam.

During 18 months of negotiations, Astron developed 6 variants of the building concept to satisfy the functional and aesthetic needs of the customer. As a result, the LMR600 standing seam roof was chosen as well as a pleasing architectural combination of sandwich panel and panoramic glazing contributing to a light and modern aspect.
