Facilities and Technical Support
Latest Update 5/10/2020:
Bureau services continue to operate and graduating final year students approved for campus access
Bureau: The Technical Team have been approved as permitted workers in order to support essential teaching and learning in the faculty. They will continue to provide bureau services as outlined below in all our workshops.
Graduating final year students: If you are in this cohort then you will have been contacted by your department. You can now request access to the various workshops by completing the linked consultation form on the relevant workshop page below.
Note: dFab will not make appointments for access to laser cutters or 3d printers. This equipment will remain as part of the bureau service, in order to keep up with demand. Access can be requested for other equipment e.g: scanner, vac former, wire bender.
Key to the Level of Risk:
Low: General access no induction needed.
Medium: Induction and training required, followed by access during normal hours of operation with general staff supervision.
High: Induction and training required, followed by restricted access with constant staff supervision.
Very High: No student access. Technical staff only.
The risk banding for each workshop or studio is indicated under their headings above. Multiple risk bandings may apply in one workshop or studio depending on the equipment or processes being used in that area.
