  • Expand architecture building into north courtyard to capture largest roof area possible and create high bay work area.
  • Construct trolley crane from new Flint Ave truck loading zone through courtyard work areas to enable large scale work.
  • Reconfigure retaining wall at north courtyard to maximize usable work areas in north courtyard.
  • Unify all shops on north end of the building.
  • Move Wood and Metal shops into north end expansion of building to create more productive and safer machinery arrangement and use.
  • Reconfigure Model shop into Machine Fabrication space containing robots, CNC, as well as tradition milling and turning machines, and large scale assembly space.
  • Create 24hr work area in Room 7 with work tables, safe tools (sanders, small drill presses and band saws). Remove doors to create visible connection to main shop.
  • Move Model shop to south end of building.
  • Use small gallery for 3D Print shop.
  • Create materials library in existing shop. Open wall to hallway to provide visual connection through building and between materials library and shop.
  • Expand storage at the courtyard level or in the sub basement.
  • Construct exterior clean finish room south of building or in the existing metal shop area.
