  • 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. Include new stair from main courtyard to north and reconfigure courtyard shallow stairs to maximize work area and create a new loading area.
  • Maximize flexibility in infrastructure to allow for future movement of machinery.
  • Locate robots, wet casting, and high bay assembly areas in new shop area north of building.
  • Locate CNC, milling, lasers, and tabletop tooling areas in existing model shop on north end of building.
  • Add roll down security screens to allow high bay assembly and model area to be accessed independently.
  • Create new interactive lab and materials library in existing room 7 on north end of building.
  • Convert small gallery into 3D Print area.
  • Enclose area under First Floor walkway to become 24hr access assembly and open shop area with storage below/above tables.
  • Use elevator hallway for lockers and exhibition.
  • Expand architecture building to the south to create metal work area.
  • Remove CMU wall between existing wood and metal work areas to create a larger single space wood working area with a roll up door to the 24hour area.
