Facilities of the lab
Super FabLab is located at TechPark, Thimphu, with a total flooring area of 715.765 m2. The space has been designed to create a happy, open, productive, and welcoming environment. The open plan and many common spaces encourage collaborative collisions and ideation.
SFL will have a facial recognition system for entry into the lab for security purposes and to facilitate ease of check-in. This will ensure that only approved people with the right training enter the lab during off-hours. The lobby will have self-guiding instructions and lab information. A cozy lounge with a small library will be in the corner. The lobby also has an ideation corner for everyone’s use.
The facility consists of 4 labs (electronics, carpentry, welding and heaving machinery), a training room and a conference room with a capacity of about 20 people. The Lab also consists of a self-serving cafeteria and a sauna room for recreational purposes. The surrounding areas will be reconstructed to create an outdoor space for users and to create an environment of collaboration and gathering.
