Over our years of operations we’ve built a wide variety of different school buildings & covered over learning areas.
Take a look at some photos from our past projects below:

6 Of The Most Impressive Factories In The World
- The Fiberline Factory.
This incredible factory is in Denmark and produces fibreglass. The low, angled architecture makes it blend in with the surrounding hills, minimising it’s impact on the environment. It’s everything you don’t expect when you think ‘factory.’
2. Louisville slugger factory, Kentucky.
Creators of an American icon, the Louisville slugger baseball bat factory has kept it’s original design. The building is classic factory architecture – reminiscent of the traditional American values that bring the company such success in it’s homeland.
A huge, iconic bat has been laid against the building on the scale of giants. A nice touch to a well respected building.
3. NPO Energomash Plant.
Much of this amazing factory looks like something out of a sci-fi film. It’s used to produce rockets and is located in Poland. Although some of the factory is still in use, other parts have been dormant for years.
4. The McLaren technology centre.
The famous prestige car-maker has put as much technology and design finesse into their UK factory.
The extended layout lets in large amounts of light to it’s surprisingly huge interior. The factory includes production areas, research and development, showrooms, electronics stores and testing rooms.
5. Olisur Olive Oil factory.
This beautiful Chilean factory respectfully matches its environment. It’s made of biodegradable materials, a decision that matched the biodegradable nature of the entire olive oil process.
It’s a great example of sustainable architecture.
6. Van Nelle factory
This Dutch factory produces tea, coffee and tobacco. Built in 1925, it’s a great example of a modernist factory: a big, grand, impressive machine.

Dying Mini Horse Saved By 3-D Printed Hoof
A miniature horse named Shine was recently attacked by dogs and was considered unlikely to survive until veterinarians suggested creating a prosthetic limb using a 3D printer.
Shine’s hoof became infected after the dog attack and had to be amputated to keep Shine alive. After a 2-hour surgery, Shine had a completely new prosthetic limb and a second chance at life.
The prosthetic was created using radiograph scans of Shine’s hoof to create an exact replica.
Shine’s owners published this statement online:
Shine is a beautiful horse inside and out. On December 29, 2015 Shine was viciously attacked by a dog/dogs while standing in his paddock … Shine had punctures to his face, his bottom lip was torn, his front knee gashed open and his rear fetlock covered in blood … It was the worst thing I have ever seen in my life.
Shine healed up everywhere except his rear leg. It progressively got worse … Dr. Goodrich thought he would be a great candidate for amputation surgery and a prosthetic if he survived the surgery.
Although Shine was going to be a show horse, his owners have decided that they’d like to use Shine as an inspiring example, taking him to visited wounded soldiers and kids with disabilities.
‘If Shine can survive a life changing traumatic experience we want to encourage others to hold on and never give up either,’ they said.
