Roof-off view to show new machinery layout.
This model was commissioned to illustrate the proposed new factory layout for a precision engineering company serving the aerospace industry. The model was to be used initially for evaluation purposes prior to finalising plans but had a secondary function as on-going staff-training tool. To keep costs down the level of detail on the machinery was kept to a stylised level but the individual machines also needed to be instantly recognisable to their highly skilled workforce. The colour coding was added to help clarify zones of operation. The upper floor of the offices and the mezzanine level in the production area were both made as removable elements to facilitate a clear view of the ground floor layout.
