Construction Workshop Example 1
From DT Online
This workshop is intended particularly for examination level and vocational courses which focus on the use of wood to make functional products - it may also be use by younger pupils for general D&T work if timetable constraints dictate.
There will most often be a storeroom adjacent plus doors into the workshop and a door to the outside.
The workshop may also have access to a shared Heat Area, shared machining area and/or a collaborative project space - this is unlikely to alter the equipment inside the room but may increase the use of mobile equipment on braked trolleys brought in temporarily from outside .
Note: The light grey shaded areas around each machine tool indicate the safety areas which should be left clear between machines. The orange coloured strips alongside the safety areas indicate permissible overlaps between them.
