Exactaform Cutting Tools Ltd are a family owned engineering business, specialising in diamond tipped cutting tools, used internationally, for a wide range of applications including the aerospace and automotive industries. Operating from a series of small industrial units nearby, the Company’s scope for business development had become limited by the size, arrangement and quality of their premises. They concluded that a new building was needed to better accommodate the existing office, production and storage facilities, while also optimising the flow of production and providing scope for future expansion. The growing business also needed an environment and facility capable of attracting top engineering talent and demonstrating their commitment and confidence to a new and existing customer base. Rather than purchasing a generic developer specified building, Exactaform opted to purchase land at Prologis Business Park and procure the building directly. Designscape developed the design of the building from concept, through technical detail, tender and construction to completion in September 2017.
The striking building interior was designed by Wylde IA.
