Coming soon – a new prototyping facility and co-worker space for Oxford

Our new prototyping and co-worker space will be an inspiring and creative environment, tailored to suit the needs of the city’s high-tech entrepreneurs and SMEs. Providing cutting-edge prototyping facilities, training, skills development and more, the facility will provide space to create, innovate, collaborate, and grow your business. Being located at the Oxford Centre for Innovation (OCFI) means that you will be able to work alongside other science and tech SMEs

Business services

We will provide making and prototyping facilities for local science and tech businesses. The new space will also include a manual workshop, electronics suite, textile space, CAD stations and assembly area. The workshop will be equipped with a 3D printer, laser cutter, 3D Mill, vinyl cutter and much, much more. These facilities will be bookable and integrated with serviced co-working and office facilities. And, there will be experienced technicians on hand to train, advise and support.

Skills & training

We also plan to run a series of adult training programmes and workshops on engineering, technology and design. The programme of events will support personal development as well as improving creative and technical skills. OCFI is already home to several local tech meet-up groups and we hope that the new facility will encourage even more self-organised meetup groups to emerge – encouraging extended peer-to-peer learning.


If you have been using these services, our technicians will remain the same and you can email them on [email protected].
