Deakin University identified the need to facilitate a new era in engineering and industrial design education in Australia. This resulted in the funding approval for the CADET centre (Centre for Advanced Design in Engineering Training) at Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus.

Cockram Construction had the challenge of delivering the complete CADET laboratory furniture package within a very short timeframe.

The space had to be custom designed to facilitate the following lab spaces; Design and realisation studios, Digital manufacturing laboratory, 3D printers and Network sensing control laboratories.

Westlab were chosen by Cockram Construction to deliver the complete laboratory furniture package within a tight timeframe.

Westlab manufactured and installed a complete laboratory package including a full specialist joinery system, island tables, laboratory trolleys and ceiling hanging service spines.

“I would like to say, that my experience dealing with Westlab has been very satisfying right from the initial design to post sales installation.

The quality of the workmanship has been excellent! Westlab was responsive to the queries and very open to address the client needs in providing the best outcome. Thank you!”
