We were approached to install a workshop with race bays to build endurance race cars, a composite room, and a research laboratory.
The idea was to incorporate RLR Motorsport Race Team at the university to build and develop cars, which offered a degree course running alongside the development and design.
We were given a blank canvas and were tasked with providing a work environment taking both education and students into consideration.
We used an 8mm Trespa Athlon solid laminate on a 30mm MDF core to give an extremely hard wearing surface. We then inlaid steel to allow welding to take place on the same worktop run.
Workstations were created for the students from the same material to give a continuity to the design.
The result is a functional and professional work area now the envy of other universities.
