The new Quantifoil production facility is prefabricated. This fast and efficient technique - with construction underway offsite while the ground was prepared at Quantifoil - means that we will be able to start expanding grid production sooner. With the foundations quickly taking shape, we were excited to visit the factory where our new building is being constructed. It was truly fascinating to see inside this huge area where whole buildings are built and moved around like a doll's house in your workshop at home. And at the end of the line, we were delighted to be able to see complete sections, ready and waiting to be shipped to Quantifoil to become our new facility. You can take the tour with us in the slide-show below, and see parts of the new Quantifoil building yourself for the first time!
With all the sections ready to go, it was time to ship them to Quantifoil and see our new facility become a reality. Don't miss our next blog in 2 weeks' time: "The One Where the Building Appeared".
