Base were employed by the university to provide a feasibility study and design for a new engineering centre with collaborative office, training and learning spaces with practical teaching and workshop areas for their Engineering Dept.

Their vision is a multidisciplinary facility, operated in collaboration with key industrial partners, which enables the rapid production of novel, prototype electrical machines, encompassing the process from concept through to manufacture and testing. Creating a national centre for excellence for machine design and manufacture, leveraging the benefits of collaboration between different industries and academia and building up a repository of best practice an innovation in the field that will attract future collaborators – targeting in particular the rapidly growing sectors of automotive electric machines and electric aircraft propulsion

The space would be divided into a number for ‘cells’ that can be flexibly developed as per the requirements of partner industries, customers or academic projects. There would be a core cell, taking up the largest portion of the laboratory/workshop space and dedicated to the rapid design-build-test of electrical machines. A breakout space where engineers from different industrial partners can meet and exchange experience and ideas as well will aid in innovation and growing the knowledge base of the team at Camperdown as well as ensuring the sustainability of the site. Displays and workbenches for the teardown and examination of past prototypes or externally built machines, will aid in the learning and evaluation of best practice in machine design.

We produced 3D visuals and video walkthroughs of how the facility would look to attract investment and future partners
