The lower two floors of the building are dedicated to specialist laboratories, workshop areas and a machining centre.

These tools will be able to accommodate skilled machinists and students with little or no experience, and have links to design software and metrology.
The successful supplier will be expected to form strong links with the faculty to ensure that the facility remains a showcase for their products, and continues to support the teaching and research within the faculty. This leads to general and specific requirements outlined in part 5 of the invitation to tender (ITT) document.
