Wood & Metal Shop

Run by a Master Wood and metal supervisor, the wood and metal shop provides students with the opportunity to develop traditional fabrication techniques and integrate them with emerging technologies in wood, metal, plastics and other materials. It also supports the digital lab, allowing secondary processes such as bending and welding on the digitally cut components.

The wood and metal shop is equipped with several machines including a circular saw, band saw, combined machine, spindle molder, and a host of manual equipment for drilling, sanding, cutting, forming, welding, etc., in addition to working tables.

This workshop, like the digital fabrication lab, is a facility for the construction of architecture models. The difference is that it allows students to experiment the manual work of the model making.

Both facilities are tailored to support design, engineering, and material & science stream courses.
