Tender Details

Western Parkland City Authority (WPCA) is the owner and operator of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) in Bradfield City Centre (Bradfield). 

The AMRF, currently under development, will be a shared-use platform that operates at an industrial scale.  The AMRF will enable its customers to develop manufacturing capability and easily transfer that capability to real-world production. It will play an important role in accelerating the adoption of advanced technology for manufacturers in Western Sydney and NSW and activating the local manufacturing ecosystem. 

The first stage of the AMRF (AMRF First Facility) will include advanced mechanical-based manufacturing capabilities to support a range of applications and demonstrate enhanced productivity and quality in manufacturing systems – construction is currently underway, and the building is scheduled for completion in Q3 2024. 

The second stage of the AMRF (AMRF Facility 2) is scheduled to open late 2026 in a separate, purpose-built facility. It will focus on advanced semiconductor and electronics manufacturing to address capability needs in industries such as defence and aerospace, as well as catalysing growth of emerging electronics industries. 

AMRF Facility 2 aims to establish a competitive edge in the global semiconductor ecosystem through the manufacture of low volume, high value advanced packaging for semiconductors at development and pilot scale using equipment and technologies for commercial production.  It will leverage Bradfield’s focus on advanced manufacturing and high-tech focus industries to become a trusted supplier of semiconductor-related technology. 

AMRF Facility 2 is currently being planned, with building, cleanroom services, and initial process capabilities in the design phase. These design plans will be provided to the adviser to inform the work. 

WPCA is conducting a competitive tender process to engage an adviser (Adviser) to provide advice on two main areas:

• Semiconductor process capabilities to be offered by the AMRF;

• Design requirements to deliver those capabilities, including cleanroom spaces, services, equipment, and process flows.
