About our production space

In our production space we offer a range of specialised workshops and facilities to support prototyping in print and materials, digital design, digital manufacture, resistant materials (wood, metal, plastics) and AR (Augmented Reality)/VR (Virtual Reality) reality, as well as plenty of space for fabrication and assembly.

All of our workshops are supervised by skilled STEAMhouse technicians who are on-hand to help and advise.
