Material Engineering Support & Test Facilities

The facility is used to investigate the material failure of manufactured components and to determine what remedial action is required to rectify difficulties in both manufacturing processes.

A detailed consultation and review process led to the segregation of the open plan office from disruptive laboratory and workshop activities, improving the work environment for the building’s users.

To maximise usable space within the existing building envelope, a first-floor plant mezzanine was created and an external first floor flat roof deck formed within the roof profile to accommodate comfort cooling and fume extraction plant, simplifying access for maintenance.
