55m x 130m Manufacturing Facility, Armidale NSW

TechSpan partnered with the Uniplan Group to design and manufacture a purpose-built manufacturing facility of a grand scale. This project is located in Armidale, NSW.

The Brief

The facility needed to provide a large and unobstructed workspace to support the efficient manufacturing of modular homes. A key functional requirement included optimised accessibility to enable a range of Uniplan’s workflow requirements, including; multiple loading zones, materials handling, easy and safe movement of modular home units (between each manufacturing station/stage and to external yard once complete). Natural light was a large consideration, as well as a custom mezzanine for storage of equipment, supplies and access to the staff lunch room.
