We have found a new-build, 670 sq/ft industrial unit in Berkshire, which should suit us fine for up to 6 months, after which we will need to move to a larger unit for final assembly and test. There are very few people in this new industrial estate, so we managed to negotiate 6 months at half price rent.. perfect! :)
I have ordered workstations, chairs, workbenches and various other essentials.. such as a toaster! hopefully most of these will be arriving in the next couple of weeks. The work stations I'm going to pick up from Ikea so that we can get our computers set up and the design process can start.
