Project Goal

Astroscale is developing innovative and scalable solutions across the spectrum of on-orbit servicing, including life extension, in situ space situational awareness, end of life, and active debris removal, to create sustainable space systems and mitigate the growing and hazardous build-up of debris in space.

Astroscale is also defining business cases and working with government and commercial stakeholders to develop norms, regulations, and incentives for the responsible use of space.

The aim of the project was to design & deliver a specialist satellite manufacturing facility, meeting rooms & associated office accommodation within three adjacent warehouse bays.

The installation of three level mezzanine floors to support the office & MEP plant requirements. The creation of a compliant (ISO 8) clean room facility with specialist overhead crane & associated control rooms.

We also helped Astroscale in the design and delivery of a brand new laboratory, click below to see the results.

Laboratory Case Study

Skills & Results

The creation of office & clean room facilities within warehouse accommodation required the design & co-ordination of structural steelwork & MEP services whilst minimising any impact on the existing building fabric.

The project required delivery in a tight timeframe with market pressures increasing lead times on critical path items such as steelwork & air handling.

Careful programming of the various trades allowed for the detailed design to be finalised whilst enabling works had already commenced.

Astroscale have launched their new state-of-the-art UK HQ with considerable excitement over the growth prospects for the future.
