Students wanting to explore a future in engineering, or specialisms in motorsport or automotive are becoming more discerning in their requirements and our educational facilities are recognising the need to respond to this, in order to remain as premier further education deliverers.

Part of the development of the skills these students are given is the importance of creating a well organised working environment and so the workshop facilities need to reflect this organised flow. The System Store Solutions team has worked with a number of schools, colleges and universities to provide an environment that allows the teaching staff to concentrate on producing graduates that the industry is keen to employ.

Whether there is the need to design and install a full workshop solution in a dedicated new building or the addition of free standing units to supplement the equipment already in situ, we have the knowledge to ensure that the right solution is provided. Typical products include tool storage, both stationary and mobile, workbenches, with incorporated study sections, cabinets, both standard and high visibility, lockers, computer cupboards. We have also designed bespoke products specifically for the educational sectors.

“We saw the system used for Red Bull Racing and Caterham F1 set-ups and it was exactly what we wanted here for the team RLR workshops at the University of Bolton. Now we have it installed it’s superb and a real selling point for CAPE (Centre of Automotive Performance Engineering), and a fabulous space for students to gain a real feel for working as part of a race team. Everyone’s delighted with it.”
