The ideas incubator – The factory fuses industry with teaching and research; Flinders staff, students, start ups, from various backgrounds; a cross pollination of ideas. Revealing the purpose – highly transparent and accessible to those within Flinders and the wider Tonsley community. Transforming how things are done – Creating useable circulation spaces that are capable of being used as testing grounds to maximise floor utilisation. Capturing the Connections – Sitting between T1 and T2, occupants will have the ability to network between the buildings via the factory and bridge links. Occupants have the opportunity to witness the great research and testing being conducted in the factory as they network either into the factory or T1/2. Resilience and Flexibility – A large open volume of space for ease of reconfigurability with the ability to spill out an into surrounding areas at ground level.
